Accurate hand evaluation is funadamental to reaching the right contract. Yet, since it was first published bridge players have essentially relied on Milton Work's 4-3-2-1 honour point count - which for many years has been known to be seriously flawed and inaccurate and often leads to the wrong contract.

In this book, the Patrick Darricades addresses these flaws by applying corrections to the 4-3-2-1 honor point count and to Goren’s distribution point count to obtain greater accuracy - and introduces revolutionary new findings that lead to accurate hand evaluation. Most importantly, this new Optimal Hand Evaluation accurately assesses the value of both hands combined, the true test of hand evaluation.

Over 100 example hands clearly establish that the Work/Goren point count is simply erroneous and that various other current methods do not yet offer a better alternative.
