Eric O. Kokish (born 1947) is a Canadian professional bridge player, writer, and coach from Montreal. It is contested every odd-numbered year under the auspices of the World Bridge Federation (WBF), alongside the Venice Cup (women) and the d'Orsi Bowl (seniors). Entries formally represent WBF zones as well as nations, so it is also known as the World Zonal Open Team Championship. It is the oldest event that confers the title of world champion in bridge, and was first contested in 1950. The Bermuda Bowl trophy is awarded to the winning team, and is named for the site of the inaugural tournament, the Atlantic archipelago of Bermuda.

This volume explores the best ways to use the bidding system in modern bridge. Beginning by establishing what the bidding needs to accomplish, it goes on to discuss every type of contested auction, and recommends useful methods and agreements from which the reader can select.

If you have read the Robson-Segal book on Partnership bidding, Mike Lawrence's book on overcalls, and play a Lebensohl-like system, then there is not much here that is new in terms of bidding content. If you are not familiar with them (and even if you are), you get a nice synthesis of current expert practice in this book. Roy Hughes' writing is clear and logical. An intermediate/advancing player will learn a lot.

Why only 4 starts? One thing that I look for in a book like this is a way to develop bidding judgment. I wish there had been quizzes at the end of each chapter. Maybe in the next edition?

This book is definitely worth reading, but compared with the author's previous book (Building a Bidding System) and the standard for excellence it set, I found it to be hugely disappointing.

Too often, the book's content presented this type of message: "This is what I play and you should play it this way too." In many cases, the advocated methods were not clearly "the right way" (though usually worthwhile or, at least, representing a sensible way to play). And in many cases, when reasons for playing the recommended agreements were offered, I found the reasons unconvincing. (In fact, in a few cases, I thought the suggested methods were inferior to alternatives of which I am aware.) Only occasionally were alternatives presented with an analysis of the benefits and drawbacks their relative strengths and weaknesses. That is a real shame, because it was in such instances that the author was at his best.

The main benefit of this book is the message it makes time and again: partnerships wishing to be consistently successful must discuss and establish competitive auction agreements. With respect to this issue, a ton of ground was covered. In fact, near the end of the book, one chapter identifies a large number of auctions where agreements are not often made. This chapter alone was worth the price of the book.
