The late Terence Reese, perhaps the greatest bridge writer of all time, introduced the over-the-shoulder style of bridge writing in his classic Play These Hands with Me. In this wry homage to the master, Horton leads the reader through a plausibly logical line of play on each instructive deal, but one that ends in failure. In each post-mortem, the 'expert' realizes how he could have improved on his play, and (usually) have made his contract. The deals are all from top-class events, which prove to be a remarkably fertile source of such material. A book filled with subtle humor and great bridge.
Mark Horton (born 1950) is a British author, journalist and expert on bridge, as well as a former lawyer and chess champion. He was editor of Bridge Magazine from 1995-2017 and is now the owner and editor of A New Bridge Magazine as well as being Chief Editor to the World Bridge Federation and the European Bridge League . He currently lives in Sutton Benger in the UK with his wife Liz.
"A refreshing approach to problems in card play. The dry English wit is in evidence and the book is an enjoyable and profitable read."
— The Bridge World
"Inspired by the familiar 'over the shoulder' style of his late, great countryman Terence Reese, Mark Horton injects Reese-like wit, British understatement and darn good bridge into Misplay These Hands With Me. A very good read - and just in time for Christmas!"
— The National Post
