Only 4 double digit swings today with a different theme than usual.  One was a slam decision, one was a part score 'battle' that ended poorly when the same team declared at both tables with neither contract successful, but the other two were a different theme than normal.  For both of these hands, the defense was able to defeat the contract at […]

Apologies in advance.  You are not going to see a lot of good bridge today, but I'm just reporting what happened.  Here is a preview of things to come.  Defense played a significant role in 3 swings (see if you would have done better?).  Twice a minor suit slam was bid vs. 3NT - once a very good one to win IMPs, once not a good slam to lose […]

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 […]

When we play, our movement is an individual movement with 7 rounds, 4 boards each round with everyone else who is playing being your partner for 4 hands.  Round 3 had, for the first time, all 4 boards with double digit swings (11-12-12-11 IMPs respectively) and those were the only double digit swings all day until one more came in the last […]

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 […]

This is my first trip to Las Vegas, and it's been a whirlwind so far. There's so much to do and see!

What a great week with a fun bunch of people. Bridge teachers really are the best people. […]

I haven’t been practicing my bridge game as often as I should – which is, frankly, shameful – although there’s reason. We’ve been served with a surprise eviction notice by our landlords, who themselves are supposedly bridge players, to be out on the 29th of May. Illegal, and our lawyers have taken over.  So far, we’ve been asked if […]
