Tim Bourke, of Australia, is well known around the world for his amazing ability to construct deals that contain a surprising twist to them - hands with a 'Wow!' factor.
David Bird is the author of more than sixty bridge books and the world's leading writer of humorous bridge fiction. He has, for many years, relied heavily on deals constructed by Tim.
In this intriguing book David and Tim choose many important areas of cardplay. Each chapter contains a section called "In the Conjurors' Den", where the technique under consideration is illustrated by well-chosen constructed deals. This is followed by a section called "Under the Spotlight" where the world's top players exhibit the same techniques, in real-life deals from top championships. Each style of play is clearly explained and the reader should feel well capable of executing such plays, the next time they arise at the table.
