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...

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...

The Basic American Bidding System by Chris Hasney & Jerry PottierThe American Bridge Series is designed as a sequential set of bidding courses, suitable for self-study or classroom-style study under the guidance of a professional bridge teacher. Volumes I through III include declarer play and defense skills as they relate to the bidding skills taught in each text. Volume IV is reserved for true experts; thus, declarer play and defense lessons would be an insult and are not included. The entire series takes about five years of study and practice to complete.

Volume I, The Basic American Bidding System, was written for beginners and for social players who...

The Intermediate American Bidding System by Chris Hasney & Jerry PottierVolume II, The Intermediate American Bidding System, makes the transition to modern methods including weak two openings. It teaches all of the pieces of "Standard" American in a way that integrates all of the varied forms of same. Don't be thrown by the term "intermediate." Many duplicate players think that they have reached that level when they can no longer play in novice games. Not so. "Intermediate," as defined by the authors, can vary from folks with zero ACBL masterpoints to 2500 masterpoints. It's not the points that count, it's the skill level.

1st edition 1998; 186 pages.

The Advanced American Bidding System by Chris Hasney & Jerry PottierVolume III, The Advanced American Bidding System presumes a complete understanding and skill with all of the material in Volume II. However, some of the Volume II material is repeated for intended redundancy, since the authors suspect that many folks who shouldn't be attempting to study Volume III will do so anyway. After all, "I'm a Life Master, I must be Advanced." The authors suggest that anyone not comfortable playing in Flight A at an ACBL regional or national tournament, or the World Bridge Federation (WBF) or other governing body equivalent thereof avoid purchase and study of Volume III until they have...

The Expert American Bidding System by Chris Hasney & Jerry PottierExpert American, Volume IV in The American Bridge Series, culminates the work begun in 1998 by bridge student Chris Hasney and expert player and system design theorist Dr. Gerald Pottier (Jerry). Volumes I and II, Basic and Intermediate American, covered the card game contract bridge from novice to duplicate tournament Flight C and B levels using Standard American bidding methods. Volume III, Advanced American, married those methods with others modified from other systems or newly designed by Dr. Pottier. It has been played successfully in tournaments in Flight A at the regional and national level. This work completes the task begun...

La série américaine de bridge est un ensemble de cours successifs sur les enchères.

Les volumes I à III incluent des notions de jeu de déclarant et de défense qui sont reliées aux niveaux d’enchères enseignés dans chaque livre. Le volume IV est réservé aux vrais experts ; par conséquent, les leçons de jeu de déclarant et de défense n’ont pas été incluses car cela serait une insulte. La série complète nécessite...

Le système d'enchères américain intermédiaire by Chris Hasney & Jerry Pottier & Alain LacourseLe volume II, le système d’enchères américain intermédiaire, effectue la transition aux méthodes modernes incluant les ouvertures à deux faibles. Il enseigne toutes les notions du « standard » américain d’une façon qui intègre ses formes variées. Ne vous méprenez pas sur le terme « intermédiaire ». Plusieurs joueurs de duplicata croient avoir atteint ce niveau lorsqu’ils ne peuvent plus jouer dans les parties novices. Ce n’est pas le cas. Le niveau « intermédiaire », tel que défini par les auteurs, peut qualifier certains joueurs ne possédant aucun point de maître...

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,...

Giocate! by D. Angelo FerriThis ebook is a study of the classic Italian card games: Scopa, Quindici, Briscola, and Tresette. The author's interest in playing cards dates back to childhood, his grandparents, his family … they loved to play cards; so does he.

In addition to rules, you will find beginner to advanced playing strategies and Ferri's method for secretly signaling your partner as to what cards you hold. This is based on the system he learned from one of his early influences - the great John Scarne.

In addition to be being one of the greatest manipulator of playing cards and perhaps the greatest card mechanic of...

The Hustle by Devin KnightA great little trick/bet you can learn in just a few minutes and you are always ready to stump someone. The effect can be done with cards, matches or coins. The twelve objects are laid out in three horizontal rows. The object of the game is that the person left with the last item to pick up loses the game. You only play this game with one person at a time. The rules are simple. The player can only take from one row at a time. Take as many as you wish from either the first, second or third row, but you cannot pick from different rows until your next turn. Either you or the spectator can start...

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...
