9780044404521: Fits and Misfits

This book covers fits and misfits in all their aspects: how to recognize them; when to stretch the bidding; when to hang back; the need to bid your values once only; how to find fits on one-, two- and three-suiters in contested and uncontested sequences; doubling and redoubling situations; how to counter the opponents' transfer bids and other artificial gadgets; warning signs of misfits; when and when not to rescue; how to get the most out of your opponents' misfits and, finally, defensive strategy against these difficult hands. The book aims to be simply and clearly written with no complex gimmicks. Much of the text is concerned with hands that have been dealt (and caused problems) in competitions. Rhoda Lederer holds the English Bridge Union's Honorary Teaching Diploma and was Executive Secretary of the EBU's Teachers' Association and one of the examiners for those seeking a teaching diploma. David Griffiths holds a Gold Level Diploma.
