2 1 Game Force a Modern Approach Book Description :

The 2/1 Game Force bidding system is an improvement over the Standard American System that has been in effect and played by bridge players for many years. The advantage of the 2/1 system is that it allows the partnership to know that game is possible with only a single bid. In this book, I have tried to present the fundamental aspects of the bidding structure for playing a "pure" Two-Over-One Game Force system of bidding. In this book, I have tried to change behavior by presenting a series of bids geared toward the 2/1 bidding structure that includes Bergen, Reverse Bergen, and Combined Bergen Raises, inverted minor suit raises with crisscross and flip-flop, cuebidding, modified scroll bids, and many more methods not used in Standard American or Prec...

New Frontiers for Strong Forcing Openings Book Description :

Ken Rexford's first book, Cuebidding at Bridge: A Modern Approach, took on the topic of Italian cuebidding, primarily in the context of a 2/1 Game Force system. However, he noticeably skipped the topic of cuebidding after a strong 2 opening. With this new book, we now know the reason, and his answer to the Big Problem. This book describes an exciting new approach, using TWO strong openings (2 and 2 ) to define PATTERN, in such a way that you can actually describe both opener's and responder's hands effectively, and even cuebid intelligently. In many ways, this approach is even better than Precision! Could you imagine agreeing spades at the two-level after a normal 2 opening? How about having no problems with 4-4-4-1 hands, or hands with both minors? ...

Cuebidding at Bridge Book Description :

Everyone knows that control-showing bids are the expert route to slam, but it is remarkably hard to find a comprehensive treatment of this vital area of the game. Until now, that is. This is an exhaustive work, covering a lot of territory. The average reader won't want to use everything they read about here -- and it would be a mammoth undertaking to try to adopt it all -- but it will get them thinking about their bidding and offer many ways to improve it. After all, bridge is the ultimate game for thinkers....

Two Over One Game Force System Book Description :

The Two-Over One Game Force bidding system is an improvement over the Standard American System that has been in effect and played by bridge players for many years. The advantage of the 2/1 system is that it allows the partnership to know that game is possible with only a single bid. In this book, I have tried to present the fundamental aspects of the bidding structure for playing a pure two-over-one game force system of bidding. While many players claim they play 2/1, this is not the case. They have allowed the bidding structure of Standard American to prevail, like bidding suits up the line or ignoring the Walsh club. In this book, I have tried to change behavior by presenting a series of bids geared toward the 2/1 bidding structure where simply sta...

Precision Simplified Book Description :

My goal in writing this book is to provide a careful organization of topics so that one may easily convert from any standard two club opening system and in particular the 2/1 Game Force bids to Precision. In the process, one may keep most of their natural bidding sequences and the conventions they currently use with minor modifications. I have tried to eliminate the fear of the memory features used by many variations of Precision by presenting a series of bids that are geared toward simplicity and allow the reader to integrate the Precision system into their more familiar natural bidding system using the 2/1 Game Force bidding structure which includes Combined Bergen Raises, inverted minor suit raises with criss-cross, cue bidding, modified scroll bi...
