Do not become surprised if your bridge partner seems to be lost in thought.

BREAKING NEWS:  Stephen Burgess - Gabi Lorentz, Robert Krochmalik - Paul Lavings, Bill Haughie - Ron Klinger won the final of the Australian Seniors' Team Selection and will represent Australia at the World Bridge Games in Wroclaw, Poland, from September 3, 2016. This will be Ron's 24th World Championship (14 Open and 10 Seniors).

THE POWER OF POSITIVE BIDDING, by Wladyslaw Izvdebski, Dariusz Kardas and Wlodzimierz Krysztofczyk, edited by Ron Klinger. In this book you will discover the methods used by the Italian world champions, from competitive bidding to slam accuracy, and you will find plentiful examples from actual tournament play. No competent bridge player will want to miss the opportunity of following this exciting work.

PLAYING DOUBLED CONTRACTS, by Ron Klinger. The opponents have doubled your contract and you have to decide how best to play the hand. Are you aiming to make your doubled contract? Is there a possibility of doubled overtricks?

Should you accept that you will not make your contract and limit your losses? These are the matters covered in this book.

DEFENDING DOUBLED CONTRACTS, by Ron Klinger. You have doubled the opposition contract and now must find the best path to inflict maximum damage. Is the contract a close thing so that you must ensure that you actually defeat the contract? Are the opponents sacrificing, when you must strive to produce penalties to compensate you for the game or slam you would have made? These are the sort of questions you will face in this quiz book of bridge problems.
