Ron Klinger has devised an entertaining way of helping players to improve their game through solving problems and at the same time having a good laugh!
About to go out and have a game of bridge? Just like an athlete needs to warm up before an important event, so a bridge player can improve performance by a warm-up of the little grey cells. Delve into this book, solve a problem or two, and you will be better placed to have a good game. The book contains more than 80 problems from recent tournaments, and covers constructive and competitive bidding, opening leads, defensive and declarer play. Working through the problems is bound to improve your game. You will also find the lighter side of bridge after each solution. Hopefully these will brighten your day if your session with your partner has not done so!
