Planning the Play of a Bridge Hand
This book, starting from the basics, explains how to make a plan as a declarer. The reader learns how to recognise which technique to apply on a given deal, both in notrump contracts and suit contracts.
Play of the Hand in the 21st Century
This is the 2nd in the American Contract Bridge League's series of bridge books for beginning and advancing players. Successfully used by students and teachers for over 20 years, this edition has been updated to reflect current standards for playing bridge. This book concentrates on the play of the hand (making a plan, promoting winners, finessing, trumping losers, etc.). The initial bidding concepts are reviewed and Jacoby transfers and slam bidding are introduced.
