Classic Kantar: A Collection of Bridge Humor

Front Cover
Master Point Press, 1999 - Games - 190 pages
0 Reviews
Eddie Kantar's Bridge Humor (Wilshire, 1977) and The Best of Eddie Kantar (Granovetter, 1989) have both been out of print for some years. For this new collection, Eddie has selected the funniest stories from the two previous books, and added a number of new pieces. Drawing on his own vast array of personal experiences, Kantar pokes fun at the top experts, and chronicles the bids and plays they hoped would never come to light (typically, there are more of his own disasters in here than anyone else's). Bridge teachers will relate to the anecdotes from Kantar's bridge classes, and everyone will enjoy his misadventures as a world traveller.
