HASH(0x9718596c) out of 5 stars As good as Masterpieces of Offense. 13 July 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It starts off a little on the easy side, but rapidly moves into more advanced and interesting territory. It can be read a second time and still be interesting. A typically well written Julian Pottage opus.
HASH(0x9718ad8c) out of 5 stars Nice collection of advanced problems. 26 Nov. 2007

Goes beyond simple counting of HCP and distribution. You need to think how the play will develop. Good collection of non easy problems.
For advanced intermedaites and above.
