The Rodwell Files based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Eric Rodwell, the professorial half of the famous pair "Meckwell" that has dominated bridge for decades, has written a work for an advanced audience, which according to the blurb "is guaranteed to change the way you play bridge."Nearly 400 pages, chockful of examples from high-level practice where the names of the innocent are not withheld, illustrate the points of technique. You will find here pointers in planning, in suit combinations, advanced suit handling, in abundance over double and compound squeezes. Rodwell uses colorful and memorable terms for the techniques, such as "gouging", "days of thunder", "The Left Jab" (second hand high from Kxx or Qxx when declarer leads to dummy's AJTx), "The 007 Play - License to Kill", my personal favorite "Chinese High Card Promotion" (not to be confused with the well-known Chinese finesse),and the 322-1/6 Super Duck (Dont even ask).Rodwell's unique style of instruction, his extremely high level of analysis, make this unique book a standout in bridge literature, and one that is sure to be talked about for years to come.
