The reader sits on the shoulder of the expert player, following his or her thought processes on each individual deal. The book analyses deals, played by some of the key players in bridge today, in major tournaments, including some in the author’s native India, and focuses on the crucial decisions that affected their outcome. Each chapter is themed, with the aim that the reader will have learnt a specific technique at the end and will move towards a better understanding of the thought processes of the expert – or talented – player. Conversational in style, the book focuses on the dual roles of logic and intuition in the game of bridge and in so doing it offers sound instruction as well as much food for thought.
