||Conventions and the Judgment to Make Them Work
By Mike Lawrence
Continuing his interactive series of bridge books on disk (Counting At Bridge, Private Bridge Lessons, Vol. 1, and Vol. 2, and Defense), Mike Lawrence turns his attention to bidding and judgment. Taking advantage of the latest graphics and tools, Mike takes you on a tour of a number of popular bidding conventions, giving you the outline of the convention, his opinion of its worth, and a number of hands to test your ability to deal with the convention properly.
Mike examines a convention from many aspects: When do you invoke it, how do you respond to it, how do you make inferences from whether or not partner chose to use it, how do you defend against it, and how do you judge the best contract given the information learned during the bidding sequence.
Although not every convention is here, this CD-ROM contains an enormous amount of material and is certain to improve your judgment in today’s world of bidding.
