After surviving the Nazi death camps, Martin Hoffman moved to England and discovered a talent for bridge. He went on to achieve great success in tournament play, and at his peak was known as the best pairs player in Europe, if not in the world. He was especially skilled at scoring well despite playing with much weaker partners. His chief weapons were his speed of thought, his imagination, and his brilliant cardplay. In this exciting book, Martin Hoffman joins with bridge writer Marc Smith to tell the reader exactly what his thinking was while he was playing some of his most spectacular deals -- from the initial bidding, right through to their triumphant conclusion.
Martin Hoffman (1929-2018) was a Czech-born player and writer (this is one of his eight books on the game). His memoir, Bridging Two Worlds, was released posthumously in 2019 from Master Point Press.
Marc Smith (Southampton, UK) is the author, with Barbara Seagram, of the world's best-selling bridge book in the past sixty years, 25 Bridge Conventions You Should Know. He has written many other bridge books and played successfully in several international championships. He is a popular online bridge teacher, conducting many classes at all levels of play.
