When discussing declarer play, the first thing I always suggest is for declarer to try to determine what kind of hand he is dealing with. Proper play of the hand starts with planning your play at Trick 1. After identifying/counting your losers, you need to look for ways to eliminate them. Counting winners too sometimes makes things easier, especially for dummy reversals. After all, there are only a finite number of types of hands, with variations on the themes. Typical hand types include a finesse, ruffing some losers in the dummy, setting up a second suit, a crossruff, and a few others.

But usually when I add a squeeze or dummy reversal to the list, that’s when I find I have lost their attention. Dummy reversals are much easier to execute than most squeezes but often harder to recognize. Yes, perhaps the latter two are a bit more complex. This book is going to simplify the dummy reversal for you.
