Bidding and making slams is exciting stuff. But to make the whole process less nerve-wracking, Marty Bergen offers you a collection of tips, conventions and all-round sensible advice.
The book begins with a re-examination of some basic hand-evaluation principles - how to upgrade or downgrade your hand, how to recognise strong holdings, and the processing of continual re-evaluation as the auction proceeds.
Bergen then introduces some standard slam bidding tools like Control Bidding, Jacoby 2NT, Splinter Bids, Blackwood and Roman Keycard Blackwood and 5NT Pick a Slam.
All sections are illustrated with quizzes, example hands and handy partnership checklists.
