A Unique Way to Study Defense
In their previous book together, On the Other Hand, David Bird and
Larry Cohen presented cardplay instruction in a novel way. 100 pairs of
deals were shown — one described by David and the other by Larry. The
deals looked similar (in some cases very similar) but an entirely different
line of play was necessary to make each of the contracts. The book was
well received and won the American Bridge Teachers’ Association ‘Book
of the Year’ award.
This follow-up volume uses exactly the same approach, but addresses
defense rather than declarer play. Only by clearly understanding the
defensive techniques involved will you be able to defeat such contracts
when you encounter them at the table.
