The sequel to DEADLY DEFENCE, this book goes further into the areas needed to become a deadly defender and a feared opponent and provides a large number of practical problem hands set in quiz form.
Defence is the hardest part of bridge and even top-class players make mistakes much too frequently. Part 1 of this book gives insights into how to become a deceptive defender and how to recognise special defensive situations. Part 2 consists of a series of quizzes and the answers contain the logic and reasoning behind the correct play.
After all the quizzes have been completed, you will be amazed at how much more clearly you can see the winning defence at the table. And practice makes perfect if you tackle the problems again every three to six months.
There is a lot of emphasis in the book on helping partner to pass vital information so that partner will be pointed into the right direction to find the winning play. No bridge player can come away from this book without a greater insight into how to be an accomplished defender.
