The game of bridge was originated earlier in Italy and France. In 1596, Francesco Berni described a game in his book named as "Triomfi". In the late 19th century, the game of bridge re-evolved.
In 1886, the first-ever standard rulebook was written by John Collinson in Ottoman, Istanbul. Many theories described that the game was invented by the British soldiers during the Crimean War and named it after Galata Bridge. In 1904, auction bridge emerged out in which the players bid together to determine the contract and the declarer.
The modern bridge, which is widely popularized holds its ideas from auction bridge based on the formats designed by Harold Stirling Vanderbilt.
After 1997, personal computers and the internet opened a wide amount of strategies to play this game by sitting inside a house.
