As readers found in BEATEN BY THE MASTERS, a host of entertaining characters face each other at the bridge table – the school Matron, the fearsome Headmaster, the ancient Reverend Benson, the much-loved senior maths master, Bertie Bellis, over-bearing school prefects and terrified younger boys. Regular followers of David Bird’s work will know what to expect – first-rate mixture of excellent bridge and sparkling dialogue.

BRIDGE MAGAZINE wrote of BEATEN BY THE MASTERS: ‘Each of David Bird’s books features some great bridge, and that tradition carries on here with some good technical points, and a few humorous expeditions into the hinterlands of bridge. Excellent bridge, amusing characters, and some great dialogue make this book a very good choice for a few hours of pleasure.’
