Overview

How to Win at Duplicate Bridge by Marshall Miles

"A great book . . . the last word on duplicate techniques."

-Bridge World

Enthusiastically endorsed by leading authorities, this advanced book on bridge will prove invaluable to any player who wants to improve his game. The author, a top-flight West Coast tournament player, takes up where most bridge experts leave off, dwelling not on fundamentals, but on the finer points and techniques needed to turn good players into superb ones.

Mr. Miles deals more with exceptions and modifications rather than with general rules. He discusses match-point philosophy, hand evaluation, and forcing bids, with particular emphasis on slam bidding and competitive bidding. His chapter on "What's New At Bridge" covers the Roth-Stone system, the "Bulldog" system, Culbertson's asking bids, psychic bids, and "shooting." With clarity and authority, he has written an essential book for "greedy players who want to win far more than their fair share of the time."

"An excellent new book. It is accurate, and I have to agree with practically all of Miles's ideas."

-Oswald Jacoby
