One of the most successful American bridge players of the last 20 years, Larry Cohen, presents a collection of his favorite personal bridge moments. Using an intimate ‘over-the-shoulder’ presentation, Cohen takes readers through more than 60 deals (no, not just 52!) — deals that are important to him in some way, or technically interesting, or just plain fun. The book's interactive style allows readers to follow the bidding and play, and even to make their own decisions at key points. Cohen discusses the pros and cons of different options at each critical moment, explaining the reasons for his own choice and why the winning action is also the correct one. Read this book for fun, or study it in depth and learn from it — whichever you choose to do, you will find it hard to put down.
My Favorite 52 was originally published as interactive software, and won the American Bridge Teachers Association 'Software of the Year' award in 2005. This is its first publication in book form.
A former computer programmer and options trader, Larry Cohen was for many years a full-time
bridge professional and part-time golfer. Now retired from serious competition, he travels from his home base in
Boca Raton, Florida, to fulfill his numerous lecturing engagements, and he
writes regularly for several magazines. He has twenty national
championships to his name, as well as two world championship medals. He is
perhaps best-known for his classic book, To Bid or not to Bid, which at the time was
the best-selling book on the game since Charles Goren's heyday (it has since
been surpassed by 25 Bridge Conventions You should Know).
Linda Lee (Toronto, Canada) is a retired project management executive who
now spends much of her time playing bridge and writing about the game. A
multiple Canadian champion who has represented her country several times at
the world level, her blog http://linda.bridgeblogging.com
is one of the most
popular bridge blogs on the net. Her books range from beginner texts to a revised and updated edition of Clyde Love's classic Bridge Squeezes Complete
Bobby Wolff (Las Vegas) is one of the all-time great American bridge
players. He started winning world championships in the 1960s with the
famous Dallas Aces. Since then he has accumulated 11 world titles, 10
silver and bronze medals in world competitions, and over 30 National titles.
In 1994 Wolff was unanimously elected to the WBF Committee of Honour, and he
is a member of the Bridge Hall of Fame. His 'Bridge with the Aces' column,
which has been appearing daily for over 25 years, is syndicated in more than
130 newspapers worldwide and appears daily at http://aces.bridgeblogging.com
