  • The Golden Rules of Opening Leads

    By Julian Pottage
    Authors:
    Julian Pottage
    The Golden Rules of Opening Leads is an excellent book covering a vital but often neglected part of bridge.

Here you can find all of the rules, with examples relevant to bridge today. If you study this book carefully, you will find that the way to pick killing leads derives from what you hear in the auction and in relating that to what you see in your hand.

  • The Golden Rules of Competitive Auctions

    By Julian Pottage, Marc Smith
    Authors:
    Julian Pottage, Marc Smith
    Competition brings many benefits - or so all the politicians say. Bridge players certainly subscribe to the theory. These days somewhere between two-thirds and three-quarters of all auctions see both sides entering the fray. Having a basic knowledge of how to get into or stay in the bidding is therefore a key attribute for success at the bridge table.You will often hear rules quoted such as 'do not double them into the game' or 'leave the five level to the enemy'. This book covers all the rules likely to help you and, as usual in this series, you will find plenty of examples both for and against each one.

  • A Guide to Better Card Play

    By Ron Klinger
    Authors:
    Ron Klinger
    The world's oldest, and leading, bridge magazine, The Bridge World, said of this book:'Guide to Better Card Play is an elementary-through-intermediate textbook on declarer play and defence. Appropriately, the two phases of the book receive equal attention. The book can be used either as a self-teacher or as the basis of a series of lessons. In addition to the tutorial material, which is comprehensive, careful and instructive, the work is choc-a-bloc with summaries, reviews, quizzes and example deals. There is even an appendix that allows your foursome to set up the practice deals yourself. We like almost everything about this book, we especially liked the attention to partnership methods, the topic selection, and the carefully constructed lesson deals. There are other good texts at this level, but Klinger's book has twice as much material as similar works. This is a very good buy.'

This book provides all those guidelines as well as the reasoning behind them and also explains when you should not follow the rules. By assuming only a minimum of knowledge, the authors have brought the subject within the reach of many players and introduce the beginner gradually by placing the slightly trickier topics towards the end of the book.
