The late Terence Reese, perhaps the greatest bridge writer of all time, introduced the 'over-the-shoulder' style of bridge writing in his classic 'Play These Hands with Me'. In his wry homage to the master, Horton leads the reader through a plausibly logical line of play on each instructive deal, but one that ends in failure. In each post-mortem, the 'expert' realizes he could have improved on his play, and (usually) have made his contract. The deals are all from the top-class events, which prove to be a remarkably fertile source of such material. A book filled with subtle humor and great bridge.
