Most of the contracts that you play are suit contracts. The presence of a trump suit provides more choices and also more dangers.

This third book in the Card Play Made Easy series deals solely with trump contracts – and aims to impart skills that are not too difficult to recognise and to put into practice. The topics include how to create more winners and how to eliminate losers, how to spot the defenders’ plans and how to thwart them and how to choose the best line when you have a number of options.

Chapters 1-7 end with a collection of declarer problems on the relevant area and the recommended line of play for each. After the final chapter there is a lengthy quiz on all aspects of the book, plus the solutions.

After studying the advice and deals in these pages, you are bound to become a more successful declarer.
