Sixth Impression 1967. Nice collectors book.
The reader will find a synthesis - of the experience the science and the psychology of two great card players - Victor Mollo and Nico Gardener. And he will enjoy the lively style and occasional epigrams this study of the anatomy of luck. Luck at Bridge is an art to be mastered like any other. That is the theme of this book in which two of Britain's leading experts pass on the secrets of success, the technique of coaxing the cards themselves into taking sides, first for declarer, then for the defence.
Nico Gardener contributes the technical knowledge which has won him every prize in the world of Bridge. Victor Mollo brings to the partnership the sparkling style and gift for simplification,' which have made his Streamlined Bridge the best selling text book on bidding. For every problem there is a new approach, and plays which were once the preserve of the Master are brought within easy reach of the average reader. Never have the mechanics of the squeeze been made to look so simple - or the choice of opening lead less difficult.
A feature of the book is a study in the art of "looking through the backs of the cards", the knack of making and breaking contracts by reading correctly opponents hands.
