Synopsis: Here is a glittering selection of challenging hands taken from the author's daily column in The Times. Individual chapters includes Rubber Bridge, the Best of British, International Superstars, How You Should Play and the Experts Go Wrong. There is also an invaluable index of playing techniques, as exemplified by each hand. Finally, a book for every bridge fan -- never before has there been a comprehensive history of the game, filled with anecdotes about famous players, key tournaments, strategies, scandals, and a little instruction for good measure. Evolving at some point in the 18th century from a card game known as "whist," bridge has undergone countless variations, and acquired a massive following of clubs and organizations in the ensuing centuries. The New York Times Bridge Book is aimed not only at the bridge-playing community but also an armchair audience fascinated by the role of card games in world history.
