Since it was first published, this has been the definitive book on the tough topic of balancing your bridge hand. It examines auctions where the opponents bid something and you are given the opportunity to either let them have it or to balance. This revised and expanded edition is updated to reflect modern bidding practices and covers almost any possible auction. The cost of not balancing can be huge, but you must weigh the cost of passing against the cost of bidding and getting a bad result. Lawrence's discussion of hand evaluation and planning a balancing auction goes beyond generic rules. Hundreds of examples will help you develop judgment. This is important reading for intermediate bridge players who wish to advance. No other bridge book provides as thorough a discussion of the topic.
