Categories: Test Your Bridge Technique
Test your declarer play! This book, which concentrates on endplays and trump coups, is one of several collections of problems designed to accompany the Bridge Technique series.
Why should you want to polish your endgame technique? There are two very good reasons. The first is that many of these plays are relatively easy to perform. Often you will not even need to keep track of which cards have been played! The second reason is that the opportunities to use these techniques, or to defend against them, will arise in nearly every bridge session you play. So the rewards to be gained are considerable.
The basic principles of endplays are straightforward, but applying them is not always so easy. Rest assured that some serious challenges await you in these pages!
