This book of illustrated hands aims to supply a marked deficiency in the average Bridge-play-er's game. So many players arrive at a point in their study of the game beyond which they fail to progress. With the game or the rubber in sight, they are so eager to win that they pay little heed to the extra tricks they might have made with a little more care. For such losses one hears the constant excuse, "Never mind, partner, we won the rubber!" Worse still, they sometimes lose the critical trick on which hangs the game and the rubber. They lose through not winning when they could have won; through trying for too much; through running unnecessary risks; through stopping at two odd in a no-trumper when they could have made three; and through not knowing the state of the score, and the number of tricks needful for the game.
