Defending Doubled Contracts

By Ron Klinger
Authors:
Ron Klinger
Having doubled the opponents, you now have to find the best way of enforcing your call. Are the odds so close that defeating the contract is the over-riding priority? But if the opponents' intention were to deprive you of a certain game you should be looking to inflict severe penalties.These are the sort of questions that will face you in this quiz book of bridge problems. The deals have been chosen from major national and international championships. In almost every case you have the chance to do better than the defenders did at the table. As long as you tackle the problems with zeal and determination, your own defence is bound to improve, even if you do not find the best answer every time.

  • The Deadly Defence Quiz Book

    By Wladyslaw Izdebski, Roman Krzemien, Ron Klinger
    Authors:
    Wladyslaw Izdebski, Roman Krzemien, Ron Klinger
    Defence is the hardest part of bridge and even top-class players make mistakes much too frequently. Part 1 of this book gives insights into how to become a deceptive defender and how to recognize special defensive situations. Part 2 consists of a series of quizzes and the answers contain the logic and reasoning behind the correct play. After all the quizzes have been completed, you will be amazed at how much more clearly you can see the winning defence at the table. And practice makes perfect if you tackle the problems again every three to six months. There is a lot of emphasis in the book on helping partner to pass vital information so that partner will be pointed into the right direction to find the winning play. No bridge player can come away from this book without a greater insight into how to be an accomplished defender.

  • Divine Intervention

    By David Bird, Terence Reese
    Authors:
    David Bird, Terence Reese
    'The monks are back. That's all you need to know if you have already been exposed to the wonderful series by Terence Reese and David Bird, featuring high-level bridge deals and high-level laughter, about the fanatical bridge-playing denizens of St Titus. Divine Intervention follows one of the earlier books by including an African interlude, but the high-spot in this book comes when a director tries to give a ruling in an unprecedented situation involving the silent Brother Anthony.' The Bridge World'Ensure that you start reading this book at a weekend, in the morning, because - like me - you may not be able to put it down until you have finished. The deals are interesting, the instruction is painless, the stories are amusing, and the characters are fascinating stereotypes, familiar personalities to every club player.' Bridge Plus
