Aimed at intermediate / advanced players
Using an intimate ‘over-the-shoulder’ presentation, the reader is taken through more than 60 (no, not just 52!) - deals from the author’s own experience, deals that were important to him in some way, technically interesting, or just plain fun.
The book’s interactive style allows the reader to follow Larry’s bidding and play, and even 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 Favourite 52 was originally published as interactive software, in which form it won an award from the American Bridge Teachers Association in 2005. Adapted for this edition by Canadian international Linda Lee, it now appears in book format for the first time.
