Boot Camp Bridge presents a proven way to bid more winning slams. While not the only way, it has shown to be highly effective. As your reward for reading this book, you should be able to improve your slam bidding and perhaps reach a 75% success rate. Boot Camp Bridge is written for intermediate and advanced players who wish to improve their success in bidding slams. In Boot Camp Bridge, most of the common slam tools are reviewed and the Index can be used as an easy reference for your immediate bridge questions. For the most part, slam-going conventions are presented that are 'standard' in most bridge clubs today. In other words, there is a general consensus about the way these bids are used. However, standards do vary from time to time and from place to place. An attempt has been made to make it clear to the reader whenever bids are presented that might be considered 'nonstandard'. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with five-card major openers and the two-over-one system. In addition for purposes of this book, an openig bid of 1NT shows 15-17 high-card points with no singleton or five-card major. The goal in providing examples is not to present puzzles for the reader but rather to make sure that the reader understands how to use the convention being discussed. Although examples have been chosen that illustrate the use of particular bids,it is often the case that there may be other ways to successfully bid the same hands.
