More Accurate Bidding - Marshall Miles
An honours book from masterpoint press
Paperback, 94 pages
This is not a book for beginners, and will not bore you with rehashing things you already know. Some of the topics are somewhat controversial, and as always Marshall Miles urges his own, often original, point of view. You may not be persuaded by everything he recommends, but perhaps you will adopt part of it, and it won't hurt you to discover how some other people play, even if you refuse to play that way yourself.
Here are some of the topics discussed:
Game invitations after a raise of opener's major,
Fast arrival and picture bids,
When the opponents double a transfer or Stayman,
Mini Roman 2♦,
The Kaplan Interchange,
Rubens advances of overcalls,
Ways to show two-suiters,
The Wolff signoff,
Playing in the opponents' suit,
As he often does, Miles ends this book with an 'It's Your Call' bidding quiz, with detailed discussion of options and the rationale for his own choices.
