This book covers the elements of card play for those whose bridge playing careers have reached the point where, having perhaps concentrated on their bidding, they would like to play the cards well, as declarer and defender. Many books for inexperienced players start at the ground level and end much higher. Avoiding that trap, Paul Marston keeps all the instructions on the same plane. This is an ideal book for those who find the game "difficult". Paul Marston has had numerous successes in big bridge events such as the World Pairs Championships and the World Teams Olympiad.
