A Bridge to Inspired Declarer Play
HELP, what do I do now? Every bridge player learns basic cardplay techniques - finesses, eliminations, endplays, loser-on-loser, and so forth. The trick is to know which technique to use on each particular deal. What features of a bridge hand lead an expert to select the correct line of play from all those available? The carefully chosen examples in this book will help advancing players recognize those features and take action accordingly. DR. JULIAN LADERMAN is a New York math professor who writes a regular bridge column in The Bronx Journal. His first book, A Bridge to Simple Squeezes, was named 2006 Book of the Year by the American Bridge Teachers' Association.
