More Breaking The Rules: Second Hand Play - Barry Rigal & Josh Donn

Hardback, 226 pages

To master bridge, we need to learn the rules and algorithms that govern the game, but we must also take them with a pinch of salt. The "rules," or best practices, are there because they work. But not always. The more deals you play, the more you realize that context determines whether or not you should follow the general principles that operate successfully more often than not.

And that is what this book is about. We go beyond the basic rules that, in a vacuum, provide helpful advice. After all, one cannot play bridge in a vacuum. Sometimes you need to break the rules. This volume, for advanced intermediate players, deals exclusively with second hand play, both by declarer and the defenders.

About the Authors
Barry Rigal was born in London and now lives in Manhattan. He is a full-time bridge professional player, teacher, author, and ACBL Bulletin editor, who has been chief commentator at major events around the world for the past decade. Winner of multiple national titles in the UK and US, he has written several books on bridge and is author of the best-selling Card Games for Dummies as well as Breaking the Rules: First Hand Play. His target is to visit a new state in the US and a new country every year.

Josh Donn grew up in Syracuse, NY, and has lived in Las Vegas, NV, since 2006. During that time, has been an accounting manager at several major casinos on the Las Vegas strip. He is also a professional bridge player. He won the World Junior Team Championships in 2006 and has two national titles in the US, including the prestigious Blue Ribbon Pairs. He enjoys helping his mother run her successful bridge club, playing with his three young nephews, and playing or reading about bridge any chance that he gets.
