In the smoke-filled clubs of London and New York, characters such as Harry the Horse, Moonbeam, Godzilla, and Hannibal the Cannibal play for high stakes. World championships hang in the balance in Chile, Italy, and Bali. In the jet-set resorts of Europe, the top pros play invitational money tournaments with millionaire sponsors. Share the favorite bridge memories of one of the world's best, as Zia Mahmood takes you Around the World in 80 Hands.
