The History of Restricted Choice
As far as I know, the second episode of the history of restricted choice was the second edition (1955) of a seminal book, "Théorie mathématique du bridge a la portée de tous" (mathematical theory of bridge within everyone's reach), by Émile Borel (a great mathematician) and André Chéron (chess ...
