One week today, I am very excited to say, I will be in Chicago attending the ABTA convention, meeting many bridge teachers, and attempting to track down a few of our authors on behalf of MPP. I'm most looking forward to visiting the booksellers who will be selling our titles at the NABC, perhaps jumping back into the skin of a bookseller as I do […]

Greetings, blogosphere! It's been FIVE years since my last post. Can you believe that? Well, I suppose I can. Blogging is something that has been pushed (by me) to the wayside in the day-to-day business (busy-ness?) of my job here at Master Point Press. My once frequent (or at least tri-annual) "new books" posts have been replaced by writing […]

Had a chance to listen to an interesting discussion the other day about whether professionals being paid to play in tournaments should be required to identify themselves in some way. One point of view was that they should make their status known to the director selling them their entry. Others felt that there should be some way to indicate to […]

Karen Walker has presented a long-running series in Bridge Bulletin entitled “Habits of Good Bidders”.  One theme she has presented is that good bidders make the bid their partner wants to hear.  Stated otherwise, good bidders make bids that anticipate the problems of their partners.Here are a couple of examples from recent play. First […]

Today is a very sad day for me as I had not seen the Internet, TV or newspapers -- and I was not aware of Omar’s passing until I spotted in Bobby's AOL column of today a comment posted by one of his readers.   Omar was no doubt bridge’s greatest promoter who had attained his fame and fortune in another realm!   I felt like […]
