About the AuthorABOUT THE AUTHOR         Critics’ ViewpointCRITICS’ VIEWPOINT

Canadian expert Roy Hughes’ first book, Building a Bidding System, has become a must-read for expert pairs looking to develop effective constructive bidding methods. Now Hughes turns to the theory and practice of competitive auctions, a critical component of the modern game.
Beginning again by establishing what the bidding system needs to accomplish, Hughes goes on to discuss every type of contested auction, and recommends useful methods and agreements from which the reader can select. This is a state-of-the-art discussion, covering many topics in detail that have at best seen cursory treatment in print up to now.

A rich book, and what’s more, it’s written in a pleasant way.

“Hughes has written one good book after another, covering all aspects of the game.”

“Written with great clarity, but definitely not a book for beginning players. Rather it is an excellent tool for advanced partnerships to study and work through together. I envy the pairs who do just that.”
