When one talks of bridge writers, the name Terence Reese is synonymous with excellence. Several of his books are landmarks in the development and understanding of bridge, especially in the field of card play. In this timeless classic, he reveals what counts in play and defence and shows the reader how to join the ranks of experts.
Terence Reese (August 28, 1913 — January 29, 1996) was a British bridge player and writer and was regarded as one of the finest of all time in both fields. He was born in Epsom to middle-class parents and was educated at Bradfield College and New College, Oxford. As a bridge player, Reese won every honour in the game, including the European Championship four times (1948, 1949, 1954, 1963) and the Bermuda Bowl in 1955. He was World Pair champion in 1961 and placed second in the World Teams Olympiad in 1960 and the World Open Pairs in 1962. He also represented Britain in the 1960 Olympiad, the Bermuda Bowl of 1965, and in five other European Championships. He won the Gold Cup, the premier British domestic competition, on eight occasions. Reese last played international bridge in the 1970 European Championship, but his career as a bridge writer continued unabated.
