The Setting Trick book. A book of problems in defensive cardplay, by a top Australian expert.

The Setting Trick book. The deals are selected from real events, providing the reader the unique experience of being up against a declarer who will not always play perfectly. As implied by the title, the book's emphasis throughout is on defeating the contract.

This is a book of problems in defensive cardplay, all the deals being selected from real events. The emphasis is solely on defeating the contract - we are playing teams, not matchpoints, and the number of undertricks or overtricks is irrelevant. About the Author: Ian McCance is Australia's ninth leading all-time master point holder.

This is a book of problems in defensive cardplay, all the deals being selected from real events. And that means that for once in a problem book, you're not up against a declarer who will always play perfectly. Indeed, sometimes the point of the problem is to take advantage of the opportunity that a slip by declarer has given you. As the title implies, the emphasis throughout is solely on defeating the contract. You are playing teams, not matchpoints, and the number of undertricks or overtricks is irrelevant.

Ian lives in Melbourne, Australia and has been playing at the top level for 51 years, representing his country on numerous occasions. In collaboration with Robert Smart, he devised Specific Trump Cuebids. Now retired, he writes a weekly newspaper column on bridge. Here is an extract from his book where each hand is hand is divided into problem and solutions. This is number 61. Defending 3NT, you start the JC to partner’s AC.

Setting Trick: Practical Problems in Bridge Defense. Not a set of rules to follow; it is practice visualizing partner's and declarer's hands, and focusing on the key features of a deal to defend it well.

It is from these same problems that the contents of this book have been selected. A combination of real-life deals and constructed themes, they will provide a stimulating challenge to any solver. I always look forward to these problems when my copy of BRIDGE magazine arrives, and now I have a collection of them to dip into whenever I fancy. Some of them are quite tough, but I can recommend this book to all good players.

I recommend this book for anyone who is serious about defence. The problems are grouped into sets of four, with the solutions following them, and tackling more than one or two of these quartets at once is quite hard work, but if you gradually work your way through this book your defence will become more thoughtful and more effective.
