[Cover Photo] Moments of Truth at the Bridge Table
R. Jayaram

Sometimes it's just "table sense," other times there is more going on behind the scenes with the odds than you think! Out of print and hard to find. Retails at $16.95. When my copies are gone they're gone.

[Cover Photo] Encyclopedia of Card Play Techniques
Guy Levé
Perhaps the most complete catalogue of declarer-play techniques ever assembled. It opens with a summary of planning the play, then describes and shows an example of every known declarer play maneuver, from the mundane like suit establishment and the different kinds of finesses, through all sorts of endplays and coups to two dozen different kinds of trump squeezes. A great reference for the serious student of the game.
List price $34.95! A fantastic collection of hands; I'd hate to see the cover price keep you from reading it.
