Nicola Bateman Navigates the Game with Finesse

South African champion Nicola Bateman joins us to chat about stamina and the value of civility, as well as share her top tip for developing players. But first, we kibitz!

Nicola's favourite bridge book for advanced to expert players is The Rodwell Files by maestro Eric Rodwell. "This book explains his innovative ideas and strategies for card play, and especially the mental areas of the game which highlight the differences that distinguish an average player from a successful one."
