Second edition, revised and updated.
Twenty years ago, Kantar set about distilling his bridge wisdom into a trilogy of books for the intermediate player, one each on Bidding, Play and Defense. Each consisted of several hundred short Tips, and the author believes that any reader who absorbs even a fraction of them will improve his or her game by at least 25%.
The Tips in this book have been completely revised and updated by the author in the light of modern bidding, and a number of new tips have been added.
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.
Classic Kantar in terms of its comprehensiveness and characteristic humor.

There is abundant new material in this second edition. I can\'t think of any basic defensive topic that is not covered. It is an ideal primer: complete, succinct, entertaining and witty.
