THE ART OF BECOMING A TOP BRIDGE PLAYER

THIS ARTICLE IS OFFERED TO YOU

We are pleased to offer you this exclusive BRIDGERAMA+ post.

THE ART OF
BECOMING
A TOP

BRIDGE PLAYER

Samantha Punch and Tim Rees

Dr. Samantha Punch has interviewed many of the world’s top bridge personalities. The players discuss their approach to the game, including subjects such as improving your game, coping with mistakes and emotions, how to become a good partner in a successful partnership, dealing with pressure and coping with loss.
This book aims to show aspiring and expert players how they might develop their game and improve their partnership dynamics. It covers the non-technical aspects of the game, helping players and partnerships to become the best they can be. At the top level, these ‘small gains’ can make the difference between winning and losing.
