Expert 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 in Volume III to produce a completely new 4 card major system which presumes expert level bridge ability. It is designed for players looking for improved bidding methods to compete in national and international championship contract bridge events in both pair and team games. It should be noted that it is not suitable for individual tournaments and rubber bridge money games.
PLEASE NOTE: Although portions of this ebook can be understood and used on their own, for full enjoyment and understanding we believe that one must be familiar with the material in Volume III, The Advanced American Bidding System. Since we consider it a prerequisite, we have created a deeply discounted "Bundle" of the two ebooks for those who have not yet purchased volume III.
