NEW BOOK: "Playing 2/1 The Rest of the Story". For those who want to add modern sophistication to their 2/1 bidding. Here, at last, Paul Thurston delivers the long awaited followup to his ABTA 2003 Book of the Year - 25 Steps to Learning 2/1.

Any Time Your RHO Makes a Skip Bid: 

  • DO NOT BID RIGHT AWAY!!! 
  • Take a deep  breath,
  • Think... about what you are going to bid with your bidworthy hand, OR think about how crappy your lousy hand is,
  • Then... either bid, or pass.
