Every time we go to the bridge table we have high expectations. We have read learned books, studied hard, practised and searched for the perfect partner who doesn't mess up but still we are successful too little of the time. Let's face it; for the average bridge player there are highs and lows, ups and downs, joy and despair. Fortunately the human condition allows us to continue to return to the table refreshed with new hope despite any disappointments that have come before. However, along the way there are always stories that are funny, tragic or at least worth re-telling. In this collection Dennis Zines relates what happened on a number of deals that piqued his interest. No doubt you will recognise similar circumstances and outcomes and hopefully will enjoy the journey. This is not an educational book but potentially one where you can pick it up at any time for a slight bridge diversion from whatever else that you were doing that you really didn't want to do.
