Double Dummy Bridge Problems from 2005 to 2022 with Full Solutions
This is the first of two volumes forming a sequel to the author’s A Compendium of Double Dummy Problems (Master Point Press, 2021), containing 134 double dummy problems, ranging from ‘very easy’ to ‘moderate’ in difficulty.
The collection is derived from the monthly series of problems that have been presented at the author’s website for competitive solving. It features as many as 24 different composers, several of whom made their first appearance at this website. The format follows that of the Compendium, with solutions being given in full. Difficulty ratings are based on suggestions from successful solvers, ranging from 1 to 4. Volume II will cover the more difficult problems rated 5 to 8 (fiendish).
Hugh Darwen (UK) ran monthly double dummy contests for the last fifty years in numerous magazines, including Bridge magazine, International Popular Bridge Monthly, and Bridge Plus. These have continued, informally, at his website www.doubledummy.net.
