The definitive book on auctions that begin in third or fourth seat. Originally published in 1989, this book quickly became recognized as a ‘must-read’ for any would-be bridge expert, and has never been out of print. Now, more than 20 years later, the author has revised, updated and expanded it to take into account modern ideas in bidding. Anyone who is at all serious about improving their game needs to own a copy of this book.
Kit Woolsey’s introduction to the original edition: ‘A major contribution to bidding theory… easy to understand and fun to read at the same time.’
Mike Lawrence (TN) has Hall of Fame credentials both as a player and a writer. An original member of the Dallas Aces, he has won three world titles and eighteen national titles. Several of his books are widely regarded as classics of the game.
Mike Lawrence is one of the masters of bridge literature. With a breezy conversational style, plenty of humour and a keen grasp of the subtleties of the game, his books are always worth reading.
