Here's your best chance to play against competition that you have a good chance of doing well against in a BIG TOURNAMENT!!!

Grab a Bridge Book Any Time: Defense is literally half the game. In Eddie Kantar's "Introduction to Defender's Play" you will learn the fundamentals of defensive play like which suit and card to lead, and when and how to signal to give your partner the maximum amount of information. If you are a good defender it is almost impossible to be a losing duplicate bridge player.
