5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and instructive discussion of card combinations, 8 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: How to Play Card Combinations: Unlocking the Secrets (Devyn Press Bridge Library) (Paperback)
This book presents excellent, thoroughly explained card combinations in context (for example, a variety of declarer-play problems in which dummy holds Qx of a suit and declarer holds Ax of the same suit, or vice versa). The reader "listens" to the author's train of thought as he plans the play of the hand. It is both fascinating and instructive to see the numerous correct ways to play the same suit combinations, depending on the hand in which they appear. This book is sure to improve anyone's declarer play (unless you're already Zia or Meckstroth), far beyond the how-to of the half-dozen or so suit combinations treated in a collection of about 50 hands. As in all of Lawrence's bridge books, the lessons average to expert players need to learn are clearly and cogently stated.

What a super little book! Lawrence not only does what he says he'll do (tell you how to play certain card combinations), but he also tells you how he thinks as he approaches those combinations in actual play. Not a bridge beginners book, but a book that improvers and established, good players can learn a lot from. Best of all, you can dip into it time and again, and get something new from it each time.

A great player who can also write reviewing interesting card combinations. What's not to like!?

If you want to improve your declarer play buy it!
