The late Terence Reese, perhaps the greatest bridge writer of all time, introduced the over-the-shoulder style of bridge writing in his classic Play These Hands with Me. In this wry homage to the master, Horton leads the reader through a plausibly logical line of play on each instructive deal, but one that ends in failure. In each post-mortem, the 'expert' realizes how he could have improved on his play, and (usually) have made his contract. The deals are all from top-class events, which prove to be a remarkably fertile source of such material. A book filled with subtle humor and great bridge.

Critics’ Viewpoint

"Inspired by the familiar 'over the shoulder' style of his late, great countryman Terence Reese, Mark Horton injects Reese-like wit, British understatement and darn good bridge into Misplay These Hands With Me. A very good read - and just in time for Christmas!"

— The National Post

"A refreshing approach to problems in card play. The dry English wit is in evidence and the book is an enjoyable and profitable read."

— The Bridge World
