Bridge Food For Thought

I was rather amused by the "official statement" of an "authorized ACBL official" to form an alliance with the EBL in an effort to resolve the countless problems that have emerged… defacing our once-wonderful game. If you ADD THE TWO GROUPS TOGETHER, they combine to form the universal unchallenged 'Father of Bridge' — THE WORLD BRIDGE […]

Weak Two In First Seat

Recently we saw on BBO men and women competing for places at the world’s championship in Wroclaw. Male commentators, who tend to be judgemental when it comes to women’s bridge, place the likes of Karen McCallum two rungs above Elizabeth Warren on the Goofy Ladder, while showing sympathy for male players who are just as loony. We men have […]

Lots of swings on Wednesday, but only 4 that cleared the hurdle of double digit swings for including in the blog.  All four swings were 11 IMPs (and, for once, all in my favor!).  When my teammates stopped in game, 3 non-vulnerable slams of varying soundness were reached, all failing.  One slam (less than 50% to begin with), could have been […]

Short Intro. I have posted the following on behalf of Judy. She has become a real friend over the past few years. She has been preoccupied with family health issues back home; yet, despite her own exhaustion, she asked me to help out her friend Bruce Greenspan with his “Longest Day” bridge project, by posting the following on her blog.

Sally Sparrow, our wonderful editor and Jill of all trades gave me an Advanced Reading Copy (ARC) of a book called The Bridge Ladies, a memoir by Betsy Lerner, published by Harper Collins in May 2016.This is not a Master Point Press book and it is not really about bridge. But I did find it interesting. When I was growing up my mom and dad played […]

Too Many Bids, Mozart

Famously the Austrian Emperor Joseph II commented to Wolfgang Mozart that although he admired his lively opera, The Abduction from the Seraglio, he felt the work contained too many notes. Many bridge players feel similarly that some auctions contain too many bids. Indeed there is a feeling among players that the fewer the number of bids the […]

There were only three teams entered in the Canadian Women's Team Championship. It would probably worth discussing why there were only three teams but that is for another time.After playing some matches one team was eliminated and the two remaining teams played an eight segment final, each segment being 15 boards.The two remaining teams wereEaton: […]

Well, a mostly different group played again Monday whining from me for once.  I can't complain, most of the swings went my way, not from any brilliance, but often a missed opportunity by the opponents.  But, the theme of "bid the games and let them try to beat you" that has been mentioned before was often the theme of the day.Board 6 […]

Releasing Steam At The Table

Bridge players of all ilks suffer frustrations at the table (and away from it as well). Over the years, I have heard a multitude of famous quotes (some funny and some categorized in a feistier milieu). With apologies to the celebrated "Bartlett's Quotations," I'd like to share those that came to me immediately […]
