[Cover Photo] When to Draw Trumps
Adam Parrish
The author introduces his process for counting losers and choosing a line of play. That's what drives our decision whether or not to pull trumps immediately: do we need the trumps for something else (like ruffing a loser?) do we need to take a fast discard before driving out a high trump? How will our plan change if trumps break 4-1 instead of 3-2? Fred Karpin's classic book The Drawing of Trumps and Its Postponement (now out of print) was one of the most valuable books on declarer play I read when I first learned bridge. Now this book brings this material to a new generation of players.
