I've been playing spades for about 6 years now and I have a regular partner on Yahoo games. We have both read both of Steve's Spade books and our game has improved dramatically. When I read this book my rating was a steady 1895. After I read both Steve's books and put them into practice my rating is now a steady 2150. My regular partner and I get accused of cheating, when in fact we use the card signaling strategies from the Master Spades books and website. We have won many online tournies in our spade league.

This book will only work for you if you have an open mind, are an agressive player or a player who knows that going for the set in most cases is the smartest choice. Even if you're a fairly good player you can use the tips on covering nils, knowing when to spade in, ace-queen finesses' and just playing in general with various types of partners. I'd recommend.
