It's hard to escape this Netflix show right now -- everyone seems to be talking about it. Apparently it's making chess sexy again. And I wondered whether it was possible that bridge could get similar treatment... So I started to watch it. Unfortunately, I know something about chess. I used to be (a couple of lifetimes ago) a pretty good player, […]

With face to face bridge on hiatus for as far out as we can see, I have set up a number of BBO games online.  Recently I have blogged on google blogspot, but I'm trying Wordpress/bridgeblogging again because of extra features available here that are not available with google (for instance the actual BBO movie, not a link or a screen shot of […]

With bridge clubs now being closed due to the corona virus, many (I hope most) of our bridge community are self-quarantining at home...something that is probably more difficult for bridge players than for the general population, as the bridge players are used to the activity (sometimes daily) and the socializing that takes place when they play at […]

As we gathered to mourn the 49ers loss in the Super Bowl, we went through the first 6 rounds where there were zero double digit swings, but we had 2 in round 7 - mostly decided by leads, but there were also decided differences in bidding which factored into the swings.  I'm going to start with 2 opening lead quizzes and then present the two […]

I loved this book, even the first half. The first half is about the struggles Martin faced as a child first in the ghetto and then after avoiding selection for the gas chambers, as a prisoner in Auschwitz, on the long march to Buchenwald, and then as a displaced person.Having read this section I realized how much Martin's personality, perseverance […]

From Bad To Worse !

For most of its history,  the ACBL  allowed players at clubs to send reports or complaints to their Unit Recorder. This was of particular advantage to players in one-club towns (or smaller cities) who had complaints involving the club manager or club owner, as their complaints would obviously not receive a fair hearing, and they could not vote […]
