Card Play Technique : Or the Art of Being Lucky, Paperback

Card Play Technique : Or the Art of Being Lucky Paperback

5 out of 5 (1 rating)


First published in 1955, this comprehensive survey of declarer play and defence has been very hard to find for the last decade.

It is perhaps the single most-requested out-of-print bridge book, and is widely regarded as the best intermediate-level book on card play ever written.

Gardener's technical expertise and Mollo's witty writing style combine to provide a unique instructional experience. This new edition has been updated and modernized by Bridge Magazine editor Mark Horton and also includes a new foreword by Gardener's daughter, Nicola Smith, herself a multiple world champion.

Review by

A great book on the play of the cards, covering both declarer play and defence. Not as thorough as Watson's classic book on the subject, but much more entertaining. Should be in every bridge player's library.
