Card Reading At Contract: How To Reconstruct The Concealed Hands At The Bridge Table by Marshall Miles lands on the |> SALE <| shelves in my shop.
Nicholas Kaye, 1964, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: The title of this book is a clue to its contents. When playing or defending, wouldnt you like to know the location of most of the fifty-two cards? Perhaps even forty or forty-five of them? It is the purpose of this book to lead you to this stage in bridge playing.
Have you heard that by the third or fourth trick, the expert know all the cards in everyones hand? This is a slight exaggeration, since even the expert mistakes the location of a queen now and then, but he knows a great deal about the concealed hands. To the average player, the way an expert can see the opponents hands is almost magic.
Here Marshall Miles, United States bridge expert, discloses the techniques of the experts. In the opinion of Ewart Kempson, editor of Bridge Magazine, himself an international player, the Author is well qualified to do this and Mr Kempson tells you exactly why he thinks so in his preface to this book.
