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."

1st edition, 1895; 344 pages.

College Bridge Series Second Semester

Chris Hasney

College Bridge Series Second Semester by Chris Hasney2nd semester contains only 11 prepared lessons, several of which can be assigned as homework reading. 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.

Originally I had planned to integrate match point play and full 2/1 Game Force...

Cranium Conundrums

Max Ödlund

Cranium Conundrums by Max ÖdlundCranium Conundrums is an ebook of 66 logic puzzles with two convenient features, which are rarely found in other books of puzzles.

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.

Each of the 80 puzzles has a difficulty ranging from 1 = easy to 5 = extremely difficult. Some problems are marked ’s’ for ’silly’.

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...
