Second edition, revised and updated.
Twenty years ago, Kantar set about distilling his bridge wisdom into a trilogy of books for the intermediate player, one each on Bidding, Play and Defense. Each consisted of several hundred short Tips, and the author believes that any reader who absorbs even a fraction of them will improve his or her game by at least 25%.
The bidding tips in this book have been completely revised and updated by the author in the light of modern developments, and a number of new tips have been added.
