If you always lead the fourth card of your longest suit ... always choose an active lead ... rarely think to try and establish tricks in your partners' suit ... lead 4th best from KQ**** ... lead the same against 1NT, 2NT and 3NT ... never lead unsupported aces ...
... believe that six card suits are good news then you should buy this book.
It is not the advice of two expert authors after years of graft at the bridge table. The book provides statistics of success for considered leads on each hand - actual numbers of IMPs and MPs. Test exercises support self study and make the reader realize the depth of thinking required to achieve the best lead in any given circumstance.
Although certainly an advanced study of the subject the book will be accessible (and instructive) to beginners and expert alike ...
(Disagree with reviewer that says 'Hard work' ... easy to read but difficult to immediately digest ... a 'frequent return to')
My leads against NT contacts are now a whole lot better.
I liked the many surprising correct answers.
I also appreciated the many problems to sharpen up on what was learned
Of course you have to realize that the "theoretically worst" lead may actually work better than the other leads.
Recommended to every bridgeplayer, intermediate or better.
Also good to see how the selected lead scores differently in "imps" vs. "matchpoint"
It has certainly broadened my view of opening leads and I hope to make good use of it in the future.
However, there must be a nagging doubt whether the results are statistically significant at the level quoted (4 sig figs). In most cases 5000 deals were generated. This is less than just looking at all possible positions of just 8 (out of 39) cards.
Many chapters very much alike but as you read the book getting the point gets easier and easier.
