All authors available from Master Point Press

Below is a complete list of all authors from Master Point Press

Caprera, David

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."

Carruthers, John

John Carruthers (Canada) is a well-known international bridge player, journalist and commentator on the game. He is currently the editor of the International Bridge Press Association's monthly Bulletin.

Chagas, Gabriel

Gabriel Chagas, of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is by far South America's all-time most successful player. He is a three-time World Champion, and has won bridge's Triple Crown — The Olympiad, the Bermuda Bowl, and the World Open Pairs — something only eight others have accomplished. He has also contributed to bridge theory, being the first to write about and explain the intra-finesse.

Chen, Jeff

JEFF CHEN is a children's book writer and a crossword puzzle constructor with 50+ puzzles published in the <em>New York Times </em>and <em>Los Angeles Times</em>. He's been playing bridge for ten years but still couldn't identify a squeeze or a Deschapelles Coup opportunity even if it came up and bit him on the bottom.

Chéron, André

André Chéron (1895-1980) was a top-ranked chess player of the generation of Capablanca (1888-1942); both he and Capablanca turned to bridge as a ‘more interesting game’ in the 1930s.


Chthonic, the irascible bridge-playing computer, modestly describes himself as the world's best bridge player.

Cleeff, Jan van

Jan van Cleeff publishes and edits <em>IMP</em> magazine in the Netherlands. He is a frequent contributor to the Daily Bulletins at World and European Championships.

Cochemé, Simon

Simon Cochemé is a recent winner of the Alan Truscott Memorial Award for his humorous bridge writing. A regular contributor to various magazines, he has also captained several England teams in international competition.

Cohen, Larry

A former computer programmer and options trader, Larry Cohen was for many years a full-time bridge professional and part-time golfer. Now retired from serious competition, he travels from his home base in Boca Raton, Florida, to fulfill his numerous lecturing engagements, and he writes regularly for several magazines. He has twenty national championships to his name, as well as two world championship medals. He is perhaps best-known for his classic book, To Bid or not to Bid, which at the time was the best-selling book on the game since Charles Goren's heyday (it has since been surpassed by 25 Bridge Conventions You should Know).

Coplea, Carole
