Ciaran Coyne Cracks the Bridge Card Code

Irish champion Ciaran Coyne talks about the role of serendipity in his bridge journey and the importance of trusting your own judgment, as well as shares his top tip for developing players. But first, we kibitz!

Ciaran chose this book as a prize when he won his first bridge tournament, back in the days when he still ranked as an intermediate player (this was in addition to the trophy, of course) :

The Complete Guide to Defensive Play by Frank Stewart.

If you're looking for inspiration to keep your cool under pressure try: Bridge Triumphs and Disasters

As a child, Ciaran's family taught him 25 (a popular card game in Ireland). Here's a link on how to play.
