Categories: Test Your Bridge Technique
Test your deceptive play! This book is designed to accompany Deceptive Card Play, Book 5 in the Bridge Technique series.
Why should you want to polish your technique in the area of deception? There are two very good reasons: first, give your opponents a chance to wrong and they will often take it! The second reason is that opportunities to use deception, either as declarer or defender, will arise on nearly every deal of every bridge session you play. So the rewards to be gained are considerable.
The basic principles of deceptive play are straightforward, but applying them is not always so easy. Rest assured that some serious challenges await you in these pages!
