Book: Wanna Play Bridge The 2/1 Way?

My book is still available! It is entitled, “Wanna Play Bridge The 2/1 Way?”  (That is, Wanna Play Bridge the two over one way?)  Published by Master Point Press in November, 2017 and available for sale through them, on Amazon, or if you reside in the U.S. you can buy directly from me.  (See below.)

It is designed to be used in a variety of ways, but is basically a novice book, designed to teach the 2/1 bidding system to absolute beginners. The description on the back cover gives the best idea of how to use it.

Start early!
2/1: More Power, More Fun!

This book can be used as an absolute beginner book, teaching the 2/1 bridge bidding system from the start. Use just Chapters 1-5 to teach children as young as 6! They can learn how to play before they are ready to learn how to bid. Older than 9, kids can move, right along with adults, into learning the bidding system. It can also be used by a novice player who has the mechanics down but still needs help with bidding structure and playing tips as well as scoring. Those people can probably start with Chapter 6. If you already play a good game of Standard American but want to switch to 2/1 then you should probably start at Chapter 11. If you already know 2/1 but don’t know a couple of other conventions needed when responding to an opening bid of a major suit, then perhaps you just need Chapters 14 and 15. There are dozens of deals for practicing both bidding and play. Use the book the way that suits you best!

You can buy it directly from me at a slight discount or you can buy directly from MPP.  You can also find it on Amazon.
