ABTA 2020 Book of the Year Awards!

At the American Bridge Teachers’ Association’s 39th Annual Book of the Year awards, two of Eddie Kantar's books were honored with the special Legacy Award, which recognizes outstanding but out-of-print titles that have been updated and made available to a new generation of bridge players.

Winners were 2nd editions of Introduction to Declarer Play and Introduction to Defense by Eddie Kantar. Originally published in 1968, these classics were revised and updated by Barbara Seagram in 2019 to incorporate modern bidding and play ideas.

It's not enough to win the tricks that belong to you, try also for some that belong to the opponents.
- Alfred Sheinwold
