Since its publication in 1999, 25 Bridge Conventions You Should Know has sold more than 400,000 copies in six languages.
Winner of the American Bridge Teachers’ Association Book of the Year, it has become a much-valued learning tool and reference for everyone from social players to those regularly playing at their local bridge club.
The new 2022 edition has been thoroughly updated, while retaining the approach and features that made the original so popular. Every convention in the book has been carefully revised to reflect the way it is used in the modern game.
Three chapters (Landy, Grand Slam Force and Ogust responses to Weak Twos) were dropped completely in favor of Bergen Raises and the DONT and Meckwell defenses to 1NT.
This new edition of The Pocket Guide to Bridge Conventions, a handy summary of its parent, has been updated in similar fashion, to reflect the changes in 25 Bridge Conventions You Should Know.
