About the AuthorABOUT THE AUTHOR

What is it like to play with Zia? What makes Rodwell-Meckstroth the best pair in the world? Why are the Polish experts everyone's least favorite opponents? The answers to these and many other bridge questions can be found in these pages. Since winning the 1976 Sunday Times Pairs in his early twenties with an even younger Michael Rosenberg, Barnet Shenkin has had the chance to play with and against most of the world's best players. Indeed, he knows most of them personally, and few bridge writers can match his insights into their successes. By recounting his own bridge career to date, with tales of triumph and disaster from world championships to big-money rubber bridge, the author puts you at the table with the greatest players of our time, and lets you find out exactly how it feels to play with the bridge legends.

Barnet Shenkin

Barnet Shenkin (USA) was born in Glasgow into a bridge-playing family. He has won every major event in the UK, including the prestigious Sunday Times pairs event (with Michael Rosenberg). He has represented Scotland, Britain and the USA in international events with success. He moved to the USA in 1997, and has since won three National titles. He now concentrates on teaching bridge and writing about the game.


Michael Rosenberg

Michael Rosenberg (New Rochelle, NY) is a stock options trader on the rare occasions he is not playing bridge. Michael has two gold medals in world competition, as well as numerous national titles, and his partnership with Zia has been one of the world’s best for the best part of two decades. He grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, and is still the youngest player ever to win the Gold Cup, Britain’s premier teams event. His wife Debbie is a US international player who has won the world Women’s Pairs title.


Zia Mahmood

Zia, usually known by that name alone, is arguably the most recognizable bridge player of our times. Born in Pakistan, he has homes in London and New York, and now represents the USA in international competition. His tournament success include numerous North American championships and six world championship medals (including a gold in 2009). He writes a regular bridge column in The Guardian and his autobiography, Bridge My Way, as a bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic.
