Winning at Your Level and Above

From Chapter 1
may never be able to beat Zia or Larry Cohen in the
Spingold, but you can win your local duplicate and your
local Stac games more often, you can do well or even win
at the Regionals, and even stop feeling out of your depth
at the Nationals (if you attend).
since most of us play most of our games at our local
bridge clubs and at Regionals, what we want to do is learn
how to use expert techniques in our bridge world, our country club, our regional or wherever
“us regular folk” play.
You can do it, and I’m going to show you how.
…So I have two objectives….(1)
Give you the tools to avoid making Bad Bids and Bad Plays,
and (2) Give you simple guidelines(I call them Rules)
that you can rely on, hand after hand, game after game. My
rules take the expert’s theoretical thinking and
experience and reduce them to simple rules that anyone
can understand, anyone can remember, and anyone can put
Mel’s Rules are nothing more than
expert thinking, simply summarized.
