From the Publisher:

Steve Fleishman created a stir in the Spades world with his brilliant Master Spades website. For the first time, Spades players could see the game as it should be played. The forceful, aggressive style of play gives the opponents no time to relax or to recover from a mistake. For competitive players, this approach is far superior to the popular alternative, the bagging strategy.

"Spades for Winners" presents Spade theory that is far ahead of its time but will soon become mainstream. Ideas such as weakening your opponents' trumps appear in print for the first time. Learn when it is correct to lead spades and why this is a particularly powerful stroke.

This book gets beginners off on the right foot. Starting with a simple bidding system that is every bit as effective as the complex systems, the author takes the reader on a tour of basic strategy and card play. Experienced players will benefit particularly from the chapters on those topics that are the weaknesses of virtually every Spades player - nil defense and trump management. Scores of full-deal examples demonstrate every principle, each one bound to lead you to improved play.

"Spades for Winners" is not all hard labor. There's a great deal of fun in these pages - a great deal of fascination and absorbing reading. For the Spades player, there is no other book like this one.

About the Author:

Both a physicist and a chemist, Steve Fleishman is an expert on Chess and Bridge with over 30 years of competitive tournament experience. He is currently the leading authority on Spades theory and strategy, and has contributed many original ideas to the game of Spades.
