Movements – a Fair Approach, by Hans-Olof Hallen, Olof Hanner & Per Jannersten
This huge hardback tome, 608 pages, contains absolutely everything you could possibly need or want to know about table movements. It’s an essential, readable, illustrated and user-friendly reference manual for anyone organising games of duplicate bridge. The pages are indexed to make it quick to turn to the right section.
Written by an energetic trio of Swedish authorities, director Hans-Olof Hallen, mathematician Olof Hanner and writer Per Jannersten, have combined forces to give us the last word on a complex and difficult subject.
“Everything the director can want to know is here, whether the aim is to run a home duplicate, a club game, or a major tournament. It is all explained, and diagrammed, with superb clarity. One could ask no more.” Alan Truscott
“I was so intrigued that I ready some 200 pages before I could put it down. I didn’t think it was possible to write about this subject in such a way.” Anders Wirgren
“This book has such a pedagogical approach that you do not need to know anything about movements to enjoy it.” Holger Lindstroem
“Here you do not only find everything; you find it with ease thanks to the perfect indices.” Peter Ventura
“An exceptional achievement” Svend Novrup
