For more than 30 years, Toronto's Eric Murray and Sami Kehela could claim to be one of the best bridge pairs in the world. Indeed, at times they were probably the best pair in the world. In this book, for the first time, the full story of their bridge partnership is told - the story of a Canadian pair who overcame the odds to dominate North American bridge, but always to have the ultimate prize, a world championship, denied them by the invincible Italian Blue Team. This is a journey back to a different era in bridge, to the International Pairs trials of the 1960s, the legendary battles against the Italians, and the thrill of bringing Canada some of its most impressive results in world competition. Few bridge partnerships in history have lasted as long as this one, and even fewer can point to such a consistent record of success on the world stage. "You never beat Murray and Kehela: you were just temporarily ahead of them," --Bob Hamman, many-times world champion.
