Revised and updated edition of the handy pocket-sized guide to basic bidding conventions for bridge players. This pocket guide is based on the information in the standard bridge textbook 25 Bridge Conventions You Should Know. Since that book's original publication in 1999, it has sold more than 300,000 copies in six languages. It has become a much-valued learning tool and reference for everyone from social players to those who regularly spend time at their local bridge club. That book was thoroughly updated in 2022 (ISBN ISBN 978 177140 071 8) , while retaining the approach and features that made the original so popular. Every convention in the book was carefully revised to reflect the way it is used in the modern game. Three chapters (Landy, Grand Slam Force and Ogust responses to Weak Twos) were dropped completely in favour of Bergen Raises and the DONT and Meckwell defenses to 1NT. This new edition of the pocket guide has been updated in similar fashion.
