As we gathered to mourn the 49ers loss in the Super Bowl, we went through the first 6 rounds where there were zero double digit swings, but we had 2 in round 7 - mostly decided by leads, but there were also decided differences in bidding which factored into the swings.  I'm going to start with 2 opening lead quizzes and then present the two […]

Today there were 4 double digit swings (I lost them all!) and all involved bidding judgment.  Two were high level doubles that did not work out, 1 was a low level double that didn't work out, and one was a slam decision.  See if you can do better...As an aside, when the blog began, I was using North/South/East/West.  Then I had a request to […]

I loved this book, even the first half. 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
