Each chapter takes a principle, helps the reader understand it, and gives examples, plus a quiz on the subject. A great help if you seem to guess right half the time or less when playing the dummy.

Review:

Mike Lawrence is concerned less with how to play your hand than with how to think about playing. The idea is to minimize risk by deducing where your opponent's high cards are. Lawrence shows how to spot and interpret clues from the opening bid on with chapters titled "Sizing Up the Case," "Finding the Witness," "Analyzing the Clues," "Conducting the Investigation," "Checking the Evidence," "Nailing Down the Case," and "Making Your Sixth Sense Work." The latter deals with watching your opponent's body language for the "tells" that reveal their thoughts involuntarily. Each chapter but the last features a quiz section to help you practice techniques.

Book Description BARON BARCLAY BRIDGE SUPPLIES, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd ed.. Language: English. Brand new Book. World champion Mike Lawrence teaches you the critical skill of card location in contract bridge: how to determine which cards your opponents are holding based on what they did or didn?t bid and what they've led or haven't led. Learn to spot and interpret clues from the opening bid on. He tells you what a bridge player should think about, why, and how. Each chapter explains a principle and gives examples. All chapters but the last, which is about reading subtle tells and signs from your opponents, have a quiz section to help you practice techniques. Applying Mike?s expert logic as each card is played will point you to the likely location of the remaining unplayed cards. If you follow his tips and concentrate on counting, distribution and applying deductive reasoning, your bridge game will greatly improve. Seller Inventory # AAC9780910791489
