This may be the funniest bridge biography you will ever read. Peter Fredin of Sweden won the 2009 European Pairs championship, and is a multiple medalist in events at the world level. His style and approach to bridge owe more to psychology than to the mathematics of the game, something that often lands him in unusual situations at the table. Being one of the world’s best card players, he can generally find a way to extricate himself. Danish journalist Jeppe Juhl, a close personal friend of Fredin, has collected some of Fredin’s best and worst moments into a book that offers superlative entertainment for any bridge player.
Jeppe Juhl (Denmark) is an award-winning print and TV journalist who also happens to be an expert player of poker, bridge, chess, backgammon and Scrabble.
Peter Fredin (Sweden) has several top-three finishes in world pairs and teams competitions, and has won numerous events in his native Sweden and around the world. Other top-level experts fear and respect him as a challenging opponent, whose imaginative style along with his exceptional card-reading puts them under constant pressure. Bob Hamman says of him, 'Against Peter, no lead is secure, no contract is certain; he seems to be coming after you on every hand. There is never a time to relax.'
Peter Fredin is known by his peers at the top of our game to be exceptional. Exceptional in the sense that he frequently makes bids and takes lines of play that can be variously described as creative, or counter--intuitive, even bizarre. Often, but by no means always, with devastating success. Like its subject this is no run-of-the-mill bridge book. Its practical application for average players will be limited, not to say dangerous, but its entertainment value is high.
