Step by Step : Constructive Bidding - Tony Sowter
Paperback, 144 pages
This is the ideal instructional handbook for intermediate players, who have completed a couple of bridge courses and would like to improve, and for those who have been playing duplicate bridge for a number of years but feel that they never seem to maek much progress.
The author concentrates on 4-card major systems and a weak no-trump, but his step-by-step approach - developed over the years in teaching weekends and on bridge cruises ins also applicable to other bidding systems. After covering the four basic elements of opening, responding, rebidding and responder's second bid, he deals with such key questions as part-score or game and how to explore the slam zone.
