Eliminations & Throw Ins (Bridge Technique Series) by David Bird
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
This is a shortish book, focussed on the elimination and throw-in bridge technique - a very important one in bridge.
The book explains very well several situations under which this technique is appropriate to use. Very often you will find yourself a trick short of making your contract. Using this technique you can surrender a loser to your opponents, and when they lead for the next trick, it is forced to be in your favour (either via ruff and discard, or giving you the opportunity to promote a non-winner in the suit lead.

Not least, I was very impressed with the features the phone has. Obviously it's a Walkman phone, and it has a 2 MP camera (which is enough for an occasional user), and it can also do all the basics we expect from a phone. But very nice bonuses were the FM radio, and a pedometer! I had never thought about having a pedometer in a… Read more
