About the Book

An in-depth ‘over-the-shoulder’ look at top-level bridge. While describing almost 200 deals that he played in World and European Championships, one of the world’s best players, Boye Brogeland, discusses bidding and cardplay, as well as his approach to the mental side of the game. A fascinating glimpse into the thought processes of a champion bridge player, as well as a look at state-of-the-art bidding methods, some of which are described here for the first time.
