My Bridge Booklets
Sven's Decision Tables Booklet (V4.0, 34 Pages, Comb-Bound and Tabbed, $US30)
Sven's Decision Tables for Bridge Bidding are designed for use at the Bridge table. No frills, no science, just plain logic. They are very graphical and form a Bridge bidding method, a logical flow chart if you will, leading from the opening bid to the final declaration of a contract. With the mind of a programmer and many years of experience as a technical writer Sven has put a lot of thought into this particular piece of documentation to make it as user-friendly and as accurate as possible. Clearly marked Reference Tabs at the bottom front edge of the booklet make it quick and easy to turn to a particular decision table. The tables cover only a selected set of common bidding situations and only four of the most common bidding conventions (Stayman, Jacoby, Blackwood and Gerber). This is not merely another Bridge book, it is a tool. Convenient and fast. Also included is a single Reference Card showing the Opening Bids. Sven's Decision Tables booklet, size A5, can be ordered separately (making it 3 mm thick) or more conveniently bound together with Sven's Card Playing Strategies booklet (making it 5 mm thick).
