KIRKUS REVIEW

Several years after Schenken's introduction of his ""Big Club"" system to American bridge players (Better Bidding in 15 Minutes--Expert Bidding in a Week), he offers this improved version. While it is similar to the original book. Schenken now adds the ""Big Club"" to ""Standard American,"" the system which used to be called Goren, now entitled ""Big Club Standard. ""If this is confusing so is bridge. For the true convert, however, the last part of his book covers the ""Complete Schenken"" -- adding several refinements to his basic innovational method. While the ""Big Club"" has become quite popular, especially among duplicate players, this has not held true among the experts--a situation Mr. Schenken now hopes to remedy. In any case, it will be thoroughly riffled and read.
