I am dumbfounded when I reflect upon my bridge involvement prior to the Internet Era. In fact, it is hard to fathom how much it has affected my entire way of life. In the 'olden days' when I was young and eager to attend tournaments, especially the Nationals, I would count the minutes till the plane left. I was packed two days in advance […]

Hindsight Is Always 20-20 !

So many people saying now that they always knew so-and-so was cheating, but didn't want to say anything. Didn't file any reports with their NBO Recorder because "it wouldn't do any good". Everybody knocking the NBOs now for taking no action, or action that, in their opinion, is too slow. Reminds me of how people say that the U.N. is so […]

Cheating And Sharp Practices

Quite a while ago Ray and I played in a number of tournaments in Florida. This seemed to be the home of many "minor" pros. These pros were good players but not really stars and when they played against us we were pretty evenly matched. They also had to contend with their client at the other table. Sometimes to get an edge they would use what I can […]

Residing in Las Vegas (exactly ten years this month) has introduced us to a totally different style of living to which Bobby (a native Texan) and I (from the City of Brotherly Love) have never been exposed!     When we married twelve years ago, living in Nevada was not even a wee consideration .. but as one grows older we have […]

Following the publication of The Lone Wolff by MPP, I realized (after learning so many more interludes Bobby experienced over seven decades), that since another site approves personal rants and ramblings, it was time for me to share so much more that was left unsaid. Just consider it an addendum from The Lone Wolffess… […]

Where Have You Gone, Joe Dimaggio.....?

Hard lately not to think about "heroes", whether they be in bridge or in any other endeavor. And that brought to mind the title line above, from the movie "The Graduate". And the poignant line following it - "A nation turns its lonely eyes to you". And when, like the Beatles in "Let It Be", "I find myself in times of trouble", I think […]

Against The Field

Against the FieldWhat distinguishes matchpoint from Teams is the amount of consideration one gives to what others are doing with the same cards. At matchpoint scoring emphasis is placed upon reaching a common contract and outscoring the field through clever declarer play, and/or uninformative bidding practices. There are added advantages to be got […]

The statement issued by Mike Passell  explaining his side of the situation was titled "The Whole Story", but.....after some 650 comments posted on Bridgewinners, we still don't seem to have the whole story. It's easy to miss details when there are that many posts, but here are some questions that I haven't found the answers to yet:What was the […]

I'm back in Toronto this morning and that means back to work. But I have one post left of my Chicago adventures. So here goes...The last morning in Chicago my Mum, her friend Ollie (both bridge teachers) and I visited the Art Institute of Chicago. We only had a few hours and there was so much to look at. The Institute has one of the largest […]
