Description

BRIDGE WITH A BITE While it is true that Terence Reese invented the ?over my shoulder? style of card play problem, Jim Kauder has taken it to a new level. The problems are interesting and the answers logical and informative, but each hand has a connected story, and that's where the fun starts. The author's comments about his partners and opponents are unprecedented, to wit: ?One of the players in my rubber bridge game is a mental midget.? (Hand 9) ?Only a jerk like you could figure a way to go down two on a cold hand.? (Hand 21) ?After considerable research, I discovered that there were half a million bridge players in California, three of whom freely admitted they were not experts.? (Hand 27) ?The unethical player is most effective with his doubles.? (Hand 47)show more
