Bill Jacobs from Australia, author of Fantunes Revealed, won the Master Point Press Book of the Year 2013. The Master Point Press is the sponsor of the award given by the International Bridge Press Association (IBPA).
The book’s presentation by IBPA. Not since the introduction of Precision has a new bidding system created such an immediate impact as Fantunes, the unique methods of Fulvio Fantoni and Claudio Nunes, the world’s number-one-ranked pair. The Italians have several world championship wins to their name, and their system has played a major role in that success. This book delves into the system, explaining how it works and just as importantly, why it works. Two words best describe Fantunes: natural and fun. It is the definitive text for those who would like to try an innovative and proven new bidding system. Bill Jacobs has won many Australian national championships, the most recent three playing Fantunes, and has twice represented his country at the Open level. He regularly provides astute vugraph commentary on Bridge Base Online. For the last ten years, he has been editor of the monthly bulletin of the Victorian Bridge Association.
