He was a man of wide-ranging interests who will be remembered by many students from his forty-year career teaching literature at Seneca College in Toronto. He was a collector of rare books and first editions, and loved poking […]

Here in the States (as well as elsewhere), there is continual chatter about declining interest in our once majestic game .. particularly Contract Bridge, which came upon the scene in 1927. As with most issues, everyone can cite reasons for declining participation. […]

The beginning of our beloved game came about in the 1800’s with Bridge Whist -- continuing until it was converted in 1904 to Auction Bridge and continued that way until Harold Vanderbilt was credited when he brilliantly converted "Auction" into "Contract" Bridge while on a cruise in 1927. Then along came Eli Culbertson, Milton Work, Charles […]

In My Fair Lady Professor Henry Higgins asks his companion, Colonel Pickering, ‘why can’t a woman be more like a man?’ The colonel doesn’t come up with a clear answer. In the 21st century we are facing the question turned around: ‘why can’t a man be more like a woman?’, and we are finding he can, although not yet reaching the status […]

For the first time in a long time, we got in two games this month - mostly with different players.  There was quite an assortment of 5-6-7-9 IMP swings, some with interesting hands, but I'm going to stick with reporting the 5 double digit swings of the day.  Normally I just use first names - if the reader knows the players, they know who is who, […]

Wow, this time we had no less than 9 double digit swings that included, I think, a number of interesting hands with all essentially revolving around bidding judgment/bidding choices that players face every day.  Bidding at the 5 level (or not), choosing game (or slam) in hearts, spades or NT.  It all started on the first first hand.  […]
