Over 100 years of bridge history it is not surprising that one can find many matches and events that came down to the last board, or even the last card, played. And of course, there is an added poignancy in these situations that derives from the fact that bridge is a unique sport in one aspect — the players do not know the score. In this book, the authors collect dozens of fascinating deals, each of which is that last board — the one that decided a world title and represented an individual triumph or tragedy.
