The Times Improve Your Bridge Game
Based on The Times Bridge column, an extensive bridge guide aimed at the less experienced or social player who longs to improve their game, with instructive deals and tips, as well as a helpful Index. Andrew Robson, The Times Bridge Correspondent, is both a champion Bridge player and an inspired teacher. He teaches and tutors at his Bridge Club and has acquired great practical knowledge about how people learn to play Bridge. Based on Andrew Robson's daily column in The Times, common scenarios are presented with an outline of what actually happened, as well as what should have happened. Along with every deal is the very popular handy tip `If you remember just one thing...', which features throughout the book. The first section of the book, `The Game', is a basic outline providing the key to playing a sensible game of Bridge, subdivided into `Bidding', `Declarer Play' and `Defence'. The reader can either read `The Game' first, paying particular attention to the tips, or they can dip in and out of the book, picking a common mistake at random, with the option to cross-reference to the same tip in `The Game' section. Bridge is now reaching a new audience, and is being played by people of all ages. Let Andrew Robson help you to improve your game!

Close Encounters Book 1: 1964 to 2001: Bridge's Greatest Matches
Over 100 years of bridge history, it is not surprising that one can find many matches and events that came down to the last board, or even the last card, played. And of course, there is an added poignancy in these situations that derives from the fact that bridge is a unique sport in one aspect - the players do not know the score. In this book, the authors have collected dozens of fascinating deals, each of which was that last board - the one that decided a world title or represented an individual triumph or tragedy. Skill level: general interest for all bridge players.

This book is based on their beginners' course, a series of six lessons that have started thousands of people on the road to enjoying the world's most popular card game.

Playing 2/1: The Rest of the Story
Paul Thurston's bridge textbook 25 Steps to Learning 2/1 (December 2004; ISBN 9781894154468) was an instant bestseller, winning the 2003 American Bridge Teachers' Association Book of the Year award. In a tantalizing postscript to that book, he promised a sequel, one that would cover 'the rest of the story' for those who wanted to add modern sophistication to their 2/1 bidding. Here at last he delivers, and the long wait has been worth it. The book describes an understandable and playable version of today's most popular system, something that has been missing from bridge literature until now. 2/1 game forcing ('two-over-one game forcing') is a bidding system in modern contract bridge structured around various formulaic responses to a one-level opening bid. Many improving bridge players enjoy the benefits of the 2/1 system.

It is no easy matter for him to once again endure the aggravating ups and downs, familiar to us all, of life as a bridge player.

The Abbot spends a week in the Convent of Hilda's and is shocked by the severe attitude of the Mother of Discipline. In the final part of the book, the Abbot is visited by his partner from Chennai, the Parrot. How will the bridge players of Hampshire react to such a feathered and outspoken opponent?
