WINNER - 2006 - International Bridge Press Association Book of the Year
Sabine Auken is one of the best bridge players in the world. This book is a gripping narrative of how Germany, anchored by Sabine Auken and Daniella von Arnim, came back from 47 IMPs down to snatch the 2001 Venice Cup final from France. Auken relives each of the sixteen deals from that final set and uses them to illustrate important bridge principles and general advice for anyone looking to improve their bridge game.
There's more too, as Auken discusses her bidding and defensive philosophies and how these guided her during those dramatic few boards. This is an outstanding book that delivers a player's perspective of the bridge battle arena.
