Take All Your Chances at Bridge was published in 2009 and has already been reprinted twice. It won the American Bridge Teachers 2010 Book of the Year Award for best intermediate-level book. In this sequel, Kantar presents another collection of play problems for advancing players. Again, the theme is not just finding a good line of play: the trick is to combine as many possible lines as possible to optimize your chances of making the contract. Full of Kantar’s inimitable humor and extra tips, as well as lots of good bridge, this one is another sure winner.
Eddie Kantar (Santa Monica, CA) is one of the most popular and prolific bridge writers in the world. A winner of two World Championships, and a member of the Bridge Hall of Fame, his many books include Modern Bridge Defense, Advanced Bridge Defense, the hilarious Kantar on Kontract, and of course, Roman Keycard Blackwood. His work appears regularly in many bridge magazines around the world.
Entertaining and instructive.

\"One might think that the first book had the best 100 examples, and that the sequel was a collection of also-rans. Not so. The second collection contains beautiful and instructive deals, with not a loser in the bunch.\"

Whenever Bridge Bulletin readers are asked to list their favourite writers, Eddie Kantar always comes out on top – for good reason. Learning from Kantar’s books is so easy because it’s so much fun to read them. Rating: A.

The only thing not to like about TAYC2 is the cover designation that it is for ‘intermediate’ players. Them too, of course, but Eddie Kantar’s latest is simply for anyone and everyone who enjoys bridge – regardless of the level they play at or aspire to! With unmatched smoothness, Kantar advises this is a book about declarer play (100 very good problems) and then proceeds to include a mini bidding lesson with nearly every deal. You’ll love this book!
