The definitive book on (legally) pulling the wool over your opponents’ eyes. Even if you don’t want to get into more esoteric situations, there are times at the bridge table when playing a misleading card is essential if you are to have any chance of an optimum result. This new edition of a classic from Mike Lawrence includes a number of ideas that are new since it was originally published.
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.

\'If you already own the first edition, just reread it, if not for the instruction then for the pleasure of the plays. If you don\'t own the first edition, however, get the second -- but don\'t show up to play against me.\'

Even reading a few pages should motivate most bridge players to find the nearest game to attempt a bit of trickery. Rated A.
