This book contains problems taken from major national and international championships, and in most cases you have the opportunity to outperform the actual declarers. Seeing the logic and technique behind the right play will improve your own standard.

RON KLINGER Defending Doubled Contracts
Companion book to Playing Doubled Contracts. You have doubled the opposition contract and now must find the best path to inflict maximum damage. Is the contract a close thing so that you must ensure that you do actually defeat the contract? Have the opponents sacrificed against your game, which would have succeeded? These are the sort of questions that will face you in this quiz book of bridge problems. As long as you tackle the problems with zeal and determination, your own defence is bound to improve, even if you do not find the best answer every time. Ron Klinger is the author of over sixty books, and has written a daily bridge column in The Sydney Morning Herald and The Sun-Herald for over twelve years.
