About the Book

This book is designed to give a comprehensive and systematic view of the types of hands an intermediate player might expect to encounter in a tournament. The various categories of hands presented will teach you when to use the dummy reversal, when to spurn a finesse, when to duck a trick, when to do the avoidance play and how to handle a defender’s singleton. The book will also teach you how to discard, how to unblock, how to deceive and how to handle transportation problems. Ken has published more than 15 bridge books. These books have now been consolidated into a series of 5 core tournament books as follows: Tournament Bridge for Beginning Players (4th ed. 2020), Tournament Bridge for Intermediate Players (5th ed. 2021), Tournament Bridge for Advanced Players (4th ed. 2021), Tournament Bridge for Notrump Contracts (4th ed. 2020) and Tournament Bridge Tips on Defense (4th ed. 2020). These 5 core books have themselves been condensed into a two-volume set called The Complete Book of Bridge Hands, Volumes 1 and 2 (2nd ed. 2019). In addition, Ken has published two books on bidding, The Casey 2/1 Bridge Bidding System (4th ed. 2021) and The Casey Simplified Precision Club Bridge Bidding System (2nd ed. 2021).
