This book discusses the theory of bridge bidding for advanced players, with emphasis on the principles behind an effective bidding system. These include the concepts of Useful Space, Relays, Transfers and Dialogue Bidding, as well as creative ideas about Slam Bidding and Deception. The book addresses the conflicting requirements for a system that is at the same time robust and antagonistic, but also accurate.
"This is a provocative book that everyone should read. It provides insights that are easily overlooked, and will raise awareness of important issues."
— Eric Kokish
"Anyone who considers himself to be a serious student of the game will enjoy reading this book and learn plenty in the process."
— Fred Gitelman
