About the Book

This book is designed to give a comprehensive and systematic view of the various types of Notrump bridge hands one might expect to encounter in a tournament. The book contains rules for when to hold up, how to finesse, when to spurn a finesse, when to avoid the dangerous hand, when to endplay opponents, when to squeeze, how to insure your transportation to the dummy, how to sneak your 9th trick, when to falsecard and how to handle a blocked suit. Under each subject, there are numerous examples of how to handle each rule of play. 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, Tournament Bridge for Intermediate Players, Tournament Bridge for Advanced Players, Tournament Bridge for Notrump Players and Tournament Bridge Tips on Defense. All 5 of these books were edited in 2019. These 5 core books have themselves been condensed into a two-volume set called The Complete Book of Bridge Hands, Volumes 1 and 2 Tournament Bridge for Beginning Players, Tournament Bridge for Intermediate Players, and Tournament Bridge for Notrump Players were then reedited in 2020. In addition, Ken has published a book on bidding, called The Casey Bridge Bidding System, an edit of The Precision Diamond Bridge Bidding System. This book was also edited in 2020.
