Greetings from Mike Lawrence

Welcome to my new website. Here you can do many things including reading bridge articles and acquiring bridge items. I hope you will prowl around. There are some things here you would not normally expect to find on a bridge site.  If, for instance, you visit the gallery, you will find a selection of my art. I promise this is something you haven’t seen before

More about Mike



There is a world of good bridge books and bridge software available today to help new players develop their bridge game. I carry some of them here. Included are all of my bridge books and all of my bridge software. There are a few items created by other players that I think enough of to carry here as well. I won't advertise something if I don't think it has merit.



If you choose to order something, you will note that there is no way to pay via this site. If you will fill out the order form and hit submit, I will receive the details of your order by email and will call you back to get credit card information (Visa or Mastercard) and to answer any questions you may have.


Mike Lawrence doesn’t teach rules to memorize; he schools his reader in beneficial habits and patterns of thought. After reading this book (repeatedly, gaining added benefit each time), my opponents began to think we were playing bridge with glass cards.


Mike Lawrence must be a direct descendant of Sherlock Holmes! He uses every scrap of information available on any particular hand/auction, and uses these to arrive at the best bid to make. And it is because of this attention to detail that this (and his other books) are intended for those players in the intermediate or advanced category.

One of the five best bridge books to be shipwrecked with – Mike’s comprehensive work on Overcalls actually transcends the subject and gets near to the inner essence of bridge,

Lawrence gives insight into his own considerations when making bidding decisions and makes it clear that many decisions are not absolute. But following the logic and type of arguments he presents you will get more and more decisions right. I strongly recommend his books to every bridge player who aspires to improve his or her game.

NEW BOOK: Judgment at Bridge 2

Be A Better Player & More Difficult Opponent

In his original Judgment at Bridge, Mike Lawrence gave us a lot of great advice on how to think at the bridge table. In Judgment at Bridge 2, Mike continues with his guidance on how to approach the game.

Take Mike’s counsel and you will become a better player and a more difficult opponent.
