easy-to-follow book covers in detail more than 50 of the most practical
bridge conventions in use today. A glossary, which also serves as an index,
lists more than 250 popular conventions, treatments, and systems. The big
winners in bridge are not the players capable of executing an occasional
sparkling coup, but those who know how to avoid defeat in everyday contracts
when the breaks are bad. The unlucky breaks can be guarded against by the
use of safety plays, which are thoroughly explained and demonstrated here.
Other problems in declarer play are caused by blocked suits. All improving
players are familiar with the frustrating experience of finding themselves
stranded in the wrong hand, unable through lack of communication to cash in
on tricks that could have been theirs for the taking. Here the authors
explain how to block an opponent's suit and how to unblock your own, giving
numerous, well-chosen and clear examples. "Every bridge enthusiast should
have it on his bookshelf."--Alfred Sheinwold, Los Angeles Times Syndicate.
