About the Author:

Ely Culbertson's mother was the daughter of a Cossack chieftain. His father was an American mining engineer, who developed Russia's second-largest oil field in the Caucasus. Educated in European universities, he specialized in sociological sciences and philosophy. He returned to America when the Bolshevik Revolution took place. Since 1922 he developed, with the able assistance of Josephine Culbertson (his wife), the famous Approach System of Auction, which he originated, subsequently modifying and extending it to Contract. This is known as the Culbertson (Approach-Forcing) system. He was Editor-in-Chief of “The Bridge World”, a monthly magazine, and author of “Contract Bridge Blue Book” and “Culbertson's Summary”, famous best sellers. He was President of the National Bridge Association and captain of the famous Contract Team-of-Four. which won the International Matches against England, and the Vanderbilt U.S. Championship trophy. He is also captain of a second team of four, which in Cleveland won the Chicago trophy (National Championship) of the American Bridge League. Doubtless he was the world's greatest living card analyst and authority and probably the world's first ranking player – remarking qualities to be combined into one person, a fact to which his startling success is largely due.
