An unusual combination. Both parts are interesting, and Horton has skilfully chosen deals that segue into Kokish\'s bidding methods segments.

Fun and instructive – and those willing to study and apply [Kokish’s] methods will enhance their bidding accuracy substantially. The Rabbi would be proud of this book. Rated A.

A wonderful book and a superb instructional opportunity for intermedi­ate and advanced players. Three separate collections are skill­fully blended. The reader tours over 130 deals from a variety of high-level na­tional and international events, mostly featuring Horton partnering Rabbi Hel­man, and is challenged to make deci­sions in all aspects of the game. Results and discussions with valuable lessons follow. A second collection features The Rabbi’s Rules, 20 useful maxims inter­spersed throughout; level varies from basic to sophisticated. In the third collection, Eric Kokish offers detailed notes on a wide variety of related systemic and conventional methods. This unusual material alone is well worth the cost of the book. Even expert partnerships will benefit from these notes, but they do require study, discus­sion, agreement and practice.
