Double Dummy Corner


George Coffin's Collection:  No. 245

composed by Ernest Bergholt
some time before 1906 when his book Double Dummy Bridge was published!
Coffin's notes in his own book of the same title indicate that he deemed this Bergholt's "only worthy composition".  You might disagree if you try this one from Bergholt's book, for example.
