About the Book

"If you are a student of game theory, statistics, and math, The Cutting Edge is a great read. Dave applies the nuances of these strategies to the game we all love. The text is highly analytical."
Ralph Katz, Bermuda Bowl Champion

"I enjoyed this a lot. I expect something will be new to most readers, and it’s a nice collection of related ideas in one place."
Franco Baseggio, hedge fund statistical arbitrage specialist

"[The book] presents bridge situations in a way that bridge players would understand them. It is much more important to be interested in thinking about things mathematically than to have previous knowledge."
Greg Lawler, mathematics professor, University of Chicago

"I enjoyed the hands and analysis. Following the equilibrium mixed strategy is safe in a sense, but in practice you’re only exploitable if the opponent knows you deviate and in which direction."
Jonathan Weinstein, economics professor, University of Washington in St. Louis

About the Author

David Caprera is a lawyer in Denver, Colorado, married to Anne Brenner, his partner in life as well as bridge. He is on the USBF board, the District 17 disciplinary chair, coach of the USA under 26-2 junior team, and he writes a monthly column, "Sleeping on the Couch." His 17,000 master points aren't worth a damn without a national championship and his dream is that some day he wins the "Italian-American, pony-tailed tax specialist playing with the Francophile, retired pathologist, senior mixed BAM."
