9780007557196: The Times Improve Your Bridge Game

An extensive bridge guide aimed at the less experienced or social player who longs to improve their game

Based on master player Andrew Robson's weekly in the Times, this book presents common scenarios with an outline of what actually happened, as well as what should have happened. The first section, "The Game," gives a basic outline of how to play bridge, and is subdivided into "Bidding," "Declarer Play," and "Defence." Featured alongside every deal is a handy tip, "If you remember just one thing . . .". The reader can either read "The Game" first, paying particular attention to the tips, or they can dip in and out of the book, picking a common mistake at random, with the option to cross-reference to the same tip in "The Game" section. As bridge is now reaching a new audience of all ages, master player Andrew Robson is the go-to expert on the topic. This book was titled The Times Bridge: Common Mistakes and How to Avoid Them previously.

About the Author:

Andrew Robson is Britain's leading Bridge player, teacher, writer. He is most widely known for his daily column on The Times which he began in 2000, particularly for his Friday column for the less experienced, on which this book is based.
Andrew has written weekly for Country Life since 1994 and for Money Week since 2005. He has also written for The Oldie, The Spectactor and the Express on Sunday.

As a player Andrew has won the World Junior Championship, the European Championship and every top domestic event several times. Most recently he was one of the spearheads of the England team that reached the quarter-finals of the 2013 World Championships in Bali.

As a teacher he runs the Andrew Robson Bridge Club which he started from nothing in 1995, now boasting over 2000 members and specialising in teaching the game to new players. He also travels the country giving Master Classes and leading Charity Bridge Days. For more about Andrew and his Club see www.andrewrobson.co.uk.

Andrew, 50, lives in West London with his wife and two daughters. When not Bridging he likes to ride his Mountain Bike.
