Fine Tune Your Cardplay
This collection of 100 problems features instructive deals that have appeared in David Bird’s bridge columns over the past few years. The author has aimed to present problems that will give you a good chance of finding the solution. They illustrate a wide range of card-play techniques.
Each problem is presented in two-hand format on a righthand page, with the solution and full deal overleaf. In addition, you will find a large number of ‘Bidding Tips’ and ‘Points to Remember’. If you fail to solve a problem the first time, this is no cause for concern. By reading the solution and clearly written explanation, you will have a greater chance of handling a similar situation the next time you meet it at the table.
David Bird (Southampton, UK) is the world's most prolific bridge writer, with 150 bridge books to his name. Known for the clarity of his writing and explanations, he has won the American Bridge Teachers' Association Book of the Year Award a record nine times. His celebrated humorous fiction series, featuring the cantankerous Abbot, has run for over 45 years.
Careful planning is required throughout. Anyone who successfully completes this study will surely receive smiles from partners and grudging acclaim from unhappy opponents.
