Conventions are a vital element of bidding in bridge and, unless they are clearly and easily understood, they can be destructively dangerous. Bridge Conventions, Defences and Countermeasures explains each convention and covers in detail how it can be used and how it is often misused. Ron Klinger, one of the world¿s top bridge teachers and authors is a brilliant exponent of the subject and has here produced the leading book of conventions ¿ no keen player should be without it.

Explains each convention, and goes on to show how it should be used, and covers the good and bad sides of its use. I felt the best part of the book (and the part which makes it stand out from any other book on conventions) was that, first, he shows how you might set out to make any conventional understanding difficult to use well, when employed against you. Then he discusses how best to counter these (and other) defensive measures used against you when you yourself have used the convention ... Highly recommended.―Bridge Magazine
