He is known throughout the world as a leading designer and producer of bridge software, while his web site, Bridge Base Online, is the most popular bridge-playing site on the Net.

Eric Kokish is best known these days as a professional bridge coach, writer and editor, though he made his mark in the game as a player and analyst (notably as the lead writer for the annual World Championship Books starting in 1979 and as a director of The Bridge World's Master Solvers' Club. Through their company, International Bridge Services, based in Toronto) Eric and his wife Beverly have been working with partnerships and teams with international ambitions in more than 20 countries since 1985 with consistently gratifying results.
