The Rabbi's Rules - Mark Horton & Eric Kokish
Paperback, 232 pages
Built around real-life deals featuring the bridge-playing rabbi, Leonard Helman, this book contains a wealth of tips on bidding and play for the advancing player. Bridge journalist Mark Horton takes you to the table in some of the world's most prestigious bridge events, letting you share the successes and disasters of high-level competition.
But this is not just a book to read for great bridge stories, fascinating deals and sound general advice. Even experts will learn from some of the bidding ideas, selected by Eric Kokish from his encyclopaedic coaching files. Addressing areas that are often the weak link in any bidding system, Kokish describes comprehensive methods for auctions after Inverted Minor Raises, 2club openings and 2NT openings as well as many other common situations.
