Bridge is not simply a matter of calculating the odds and percentages – inference and imagination are frequently more important. However, it is often necessary to be able to calculate the probabilities and this book shows when and how to make such calculations at the table. Human issues are given considerable weight in Probabilities and Alternatives in Bridge. Our opponents are not automatons – they may reveal their holding in one suit in order to lead us astray in another, so working out what to do is not just a question of odds, but one of psychology. The hands shown in this instructive book have been chosen with great care – each one illustrates a particular theme and the two expert players help to increase the readers’ understanding of the game.
