Test your avoidance play! This book is designed to accompany the Bridge Technique series.
The term "avoidance play" may seem intimidating, but in fact it means no more than preventing a particular defender from gaining the lead. You may think there is nothing particularly difficult about this, but of course, everything seems easy once you understand it yourself. There are plenty of players who would fail to make the majority of the contracts featured in this book.
The basic principles of avoidance play are straightforward, but applying them is not always so easy. Rest assured that some serious challenges await you in these pages!
