Have been following the discussion on Zero Tolerance with great interest! There have been mentioned many instances of actual misbehaviour at clubs and tournaments, and some instances of possible abuse of ZT, as in the HBJ spectres of "power-crazed little hitters who display the worst kind of intolerance" and "I for one do not want to play bridge […]

Just got back from a week at the races in Saratoga, NY - my 23rd. consecutive year celebrating Travers week there. There were 47,000+ people at the track on the Saturday, which is when the Travers Stakes is run. Whole families enjoying the day in the sun, bringing in their coolers of food and drink, BBQs, lawn chairs, chaise lounges, […]

When committees continuously modify a basically simple set of rules to accommodate narrow self-interests, one ends up with a tangle that defies logic and confounds the ordinary man. The tax laws with all the loop holes are an example of self-interested tinkering carried to extremes. Judges aim to uphold the laws, but juries are not compelled to […]

It is abundantly sad that some individuals have deprecated our wonderful game with their ANYTHING GOES view of acceptable behavior.   I have recently learned that our terrific, popular and once flourishing club has suffered from a noticeable number of  dropouts and when those once-regulars were asked why, they vehemently pointed to rude […]

Once more, with today's hands, almost all large swings were driven by bidding judgment, but defense (and opening leads) did play a role in a couple of […]

One of the most beloved bridge enthusiasts I have met since relocating in Nevada was the gentleman who was so warmly remembered yesterday at The Henderson Bridge Club overseen by Dixie Sue Allsbrook and Carol Warren, with Rick Price officiating.    Proctor, who passed away on June 22nd after a lingering illness, was a legend among us and was […]

It Takes One To Know One…

Allow me to preface my title and introduction with a disclaimer as I am in no way qualified to make the judgment alluded to as what constitutes these so-called world class players, whose names today are bandied about as if they are cast in stone. However, being married to two gentlemen whose uncontested records and reputations for a combined total […]

I was delighted to see Allan Graves come out a winner at the 2014 Spingold as a member of the Richard Schwartz team. I have played against him several times at our local club while he was a resident of Victoria for a brief period. It is always a pleasure to lose to a gentlemanly card shark as one comes away thinking one has been given a free […]
