About the Book

It is no coincidence that the best players are lucky players. You can become a "better" player by improving your bidding system with your partner and by improving your play technique, however this will not make you a lucky player.

In this book, illustrated with hands from actual play, the author demonstrates ways to become a lucky player. Lucky players evaluate their trick winning potential to recognize and grab opportunities, maximizing their score over all likely distributions of the cards.

Critics’ Viewpoint

Challenging for some, but it will have unexpected benefits: your cardplay will improve as you will be declarer more often and in tougher contracts!

Solid reading for the intermediate audience.

Matthew Thomson has followed up the success of his first book, Bid More, Play More with another excellent effort. The book is a treat to read, since it is only example hands. No rules or lengthy text, just hand after juicy hand.
