A Treasury of Bridge Tips

Edwin (Eddie) Kantar

A Treasury of Bridge Tips by Edwin (Eddie) KantarThis is a new completely revised 3rd edition of Kantar's classic. This ebook is not meant for beginners, nor is it aimed at experts - it is directed at players somewhere between these extremes who would like to improve their game substantially. Bonus tips remind you to count tricks, not points when preempting, and that the player who makes a preemptive bid is not the player who takes the sacrifice. You will also learn such valuable tips as how to be agressive in the bidding with fitting hands.

You will learn a whooping 540 tips and the card symbols are set in color to make reading even more...

Cheating at Bridge

Judson J. Cameron

Cheating at Bridge by Judson J. CameronMany books on Bridge have been written but very little on advantage play at Bridge. This is quite curious a fact because for other popular card games, such as Poker, this is not the case. Many books have been written on cheating at Poker. It should be obvious if cheating happens at Poker it will also happen at Bridge or any other game for money or honor.

The best protection is knowledge. And this ebook although written originally in 1933 will give you all the knowledge you need to detect and thus protect yourself from being taken advantage of.

Chess Novelties

Henry Edward Bird

Chess Novelties by Henry Edward BirdThis is a book on creative, innovative and unusual openings. Prof. Hoffmann writes in the introduction "With the courage of his opinion, Mr. Bird has decided to embody these tabooed openings and games arising from them in an independent volume. Here in black and white he has set down the heterodoxies of which he is accused, and he submits them to the judgment not alone of critics who have pinned their faith to certain special lines of play, but to that of the whole Chess world."

This allows instructors time to complete any unfinished work from 1st semester and still have extra time for integrating new members into the club, final prep for online College Bowl competition, etc. It should be noted that the rules for the competition have changed. You now have two chances (one each semester) to qualify, but they occur much earlier in the calendar year in fall and winter. Adapt and overcome.

Difficulty: Every puzzle comes with a difficulty measured in time. It estimates the time an average person would need to solve the puzzle. This is a great way to select which puzzles you want to work on. Of course, the difficulty measure will only be accurate on average. If you are a savvy puzzle solver you will probably find the solution faster. If this is your first book of puzzles you will probably need to schedule a bit more time than suggested.

Should you not find the solution then each puzzle has a clue on the following page. This is a great feature, because it means you do not have to give up if you have no idea of how to solve the puzzle. The clue will...

Defensive Tips

Edwin (Eddie) Kantar

Defensive Tips by Edwin (Eddie) KantarThis is a completely revised edition of Kantar's 1994 bestseller. The best defensive tips you will ever find are in this ebook.
  • Don't compound a crime. If you, or more likely your partner, have made an error, do not lose your cool. Many contracts can still be beaten after one defensive error, seldom after TWO.
  • The speed of the play may be a clue to declarer's problem. When playing a 4-3 trump fit, play usually slows to a crawl.
  • Do not take your eye off the ball by focusing all of the attention on one suit to the exclusion of the entire hand.
  • When declarer leads a side suit from dummmy...

Fall of the Cards

Donald Parson

Fall of the Cards by Donald Parson
"The hands are 'provocative' in the sense that they will, or at least ought to, provoke the reader to use his or her brains." - Bridge Plus
Problems of the type for which the author is infamous are limited in number, for they demand a combination of qualities not often found together. They should be problems rather than puzzles, instructive rather than baffling, presenting situations that arise in everyday play. They should be short and snappy, and answerable by a concise statement, preferably early in the game; for if delayed too long, variations in defense may lead to complications that...

Knight's Tour: With Free Choice of Start and End

Chris Wasshuber

Knight's Tour: With Free Choice of Start and End by Chris Wasshuber
"I will sum up your Knight's Tour routine as follows, IT IS BRILLIANT!" - David Burmeister
In the late 1980s I developed a method for the Knight's Tour which allows a spectator a truly free choice for the starting square and ending square of opposite color (same color start and end is mathematically impossible).

This manuscript describes in detail this method. The method attempts to minimize memorization and teaches you a system to derive a proper complete tour on the spot. The method is so flexible that you can find several different tours for one pair of start and end points. Of course,...

Scandinavian Defense: A Complete Chess Opening Repertoire Agains 1.e4

Zhigen Lin

Scandinavian Defense: A Complete Chess Opening Repertoire Agains 1.e4 by Zhigen LinThe Scandinavian: A Complete Chess Opening Repertoire Against 1.e4 is a chess ebook targeting the whole range from beginners up to masters.

The Scandinavian Defense is favored by a large number of grandmasters and has often been employed as a surprise weapon by a number of high-class players. Indian Grandmaster and World Champion Viswanathan Anand used it against Garry Kasparov in their 1995 PCA World Championship match. Anand managed to equalize out of the opening, but he faltered later on.

Perhaps the greatest exponent of the Scandinavian was Australian Grandmaster Ian Rogers, who used it to rock...

Scarne on Teeko

John Scarne

Scarne on Teeko by John ScarneTeeko was the most successful game Scarne invented. There were many Teeko clubs and tournaments in the US and abroad. Even Orson Welles was an avid Teeko player. Despite its initial success and clever game design, Teeko has fallen out of favor and only a small fan community remains and plays Teeko today.

Teeko reminds me on the game 4-in-a-row since winning patterns are four in a row horizontally, vertically or diagonally, as well as four pieces in a square. But since pieces can be moved after the initial placement phase, it borrows from checkers and chess. It is also quite similar to the...

Why do Some Players Play BETTER Than Others?

Really, why? A lot of people play and study chess. However, only 1-3% of players have really good achievements (titles, prizes...). What is different about this successful minority from the rest? It is NOT a matter of talent. I have observed thousands of different players, and I can state it with confidence. Yes, you need to have chess talent for the highest chess achievements (over 2600-2700 rating). However, anyone...

Simplicity Bridge

Chris Hasney

Simplicity Bridge by Chris HasneyFrom the introduction:

Charles Goren was right. As early as the mid-1950s he was urging bridge players to avoid getting caught up in all the trendy new bidding systems with their myriad confounding conventions. Eventually, even the great Goren was dragged screaming and kicking into the new age of scientific bidding, allowing that things like the Blackwood ace-asking convention and the artificial 2C Stayman bid to check for a 4-4 major suit fit after a 1NT opening bid could be useful at times. But in fighting against complications to our great game of contract bridge, Charles Goren was...

Small Silicone Chess Board (10" x 10")

Lybrary.com

Small Silicone Chess Board (10" x 10") by Lybrary.comThis is a 10" x 10" chess board (square size is 1 1/4"). The overall size of the silicone sheet is 10 1/4". There is no alphanumeric notation on the border.

The primary advantage of this small roll up chess board is mobility. The no-memory-effect silicone material allows you to roll it tightly, fold it, or just squeeze it together anyway you like, and still have the board open flat and stay flat instantly. The problem with vinyl boards is that they tend to roll up by themselves particularly if stored for longer time in a rolled up state. Not so with this board. It will stay flat no matter...
