Countless contracts fail because declarers allow defenders to have it their own way. This book covers situations in which defenders have the potential to restrict your trick-taking but where you can stop them, most notably by disrupting their communications. Tactics include:

  •       When and how often to duck tricks
  •       Arranging blockages
  •       Keeping dangerous hands off lead
  •       Solving entry problems
  •       Avoiding ruffs and trump promotions
  •       Preventing opponents from drawing your trumps when you are trying to organize ruffs

It will be seen that, for all these factors, correct timing is essential, notably in respect to losing tricks to a particular defender at an appropriate moment.

Sixty-four quizzes give you the chance to demonstrate your new-found knowledge.
