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...

The Forcing Pass

Edwin (Eddie) Kantar

The Forcing Pass by Edwin (Eddie) KantarThis book is the outgrowth of a series of articles on the "forcing pass" which Eddie wrote for the American Contract Bridge League Bulletin, appearing from June 1982 through June 1983. He completely reworked and revised it in 2006.

While these articles were appearing, Eddie took special note of hands on this subject. As he was dealing with uncharted territory, it is not too unusual that he has altered many of his original opinions. Eddie is now satisfied that a partnership utilizing the methods advocated in this work will have a decided advantage over a partnership which has no understandings....

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.
