Geza Ottlik had a remarkable talent for discovering and analysing strange and fascinating aspects of card play in bridge. This brilliant book is the result of his collaboration with Hugh Kelsey whose skill at high-level analysis of bridge problems was equalled only by his ability as a writer able to express complex ideas in simple prose.
ADVENTURES IN CARD PLAY is regarded universally as one of the all-time great classics of bridge.
Hugh Kelsey will always be remembered as one of the all-time great bridge writers and analysts. He was the author of more than 50 outstanding bridge books and was the bridge advisor and editor for the Master Bridge Series from its foundation. Geza Ottlik was a Hungarian writer, translator, mathematician, and bridge theorist. In a bridge column three months after Ottlik's death, Alan Truscott, who wrote the daily bridge column for The New York Times for 41 years, placed him 'among the strongest candidates' for 'the bridge writer with the greatest creativity in terms of card-play theory'.
