Eric Rodwell in Conversation


Last week, Toronto had the privilege of hosting the 2011 Summer NABC, where world champions, rising stars, and bridge enthusiasts from across North America converged on our city. Of course, for Toronto to suddenly become the epicenter of the bridge world made for an exciting week at Master Point Press. Not a day went by when we weren’t honoring the Teacher of the Year, convening book signings with our most popular authors, and of course watching the unfolding tournament.

But one of our favorite moments happened early one morning, in a quiet corner of the Royal York hotel, when multiple world champion Eric Rodwell sat down with us and bridge journalist Mark Horton to talk about the philosophy underlying his groundbreaking new cardplay book, The Rodwell Files. The book, which has been nominated for the IBPA Book of the Year, has been flying off the shelves faster than it can be restocked, so it’s safe to say that it’s generated a lot of excitement in the bridge community. Rodwell sat down to talk to us about what players he envisioned the book for, how he thinks it will change the way people play and talk about bridge, and what else you can do to improve your game. You can watch the full interview below.
