Thanks for your feedback Daniel. It turns out I mislabeled the podcast on Google Play as: A Conversation with Gavin Wolpert. I have changed it to just: The Setting Trick. All three episodes are showing up in my search on Google Play but I am having a difficult time finding a link that doesn't just work for me. Try this one:https://partnerdash.google.com/partnerdash/d/playpodcast#p:id=playpodcast/series&a=752772427

Thanks for your patience, please confirm that you have in fact found the episode. Still troubleshooting the Soundcloud issue.

Thanks for pointing that out. My hosting provider, Libsyn, said that to me as well and I thought I had fixed it. The first two episodes are up there. Will let you know more when I do.

I am going to hate to hear my partner bid 3NT which is the style I played with Fredin.

If Tanya won't play with you, I would be happy to do so!

Thanks for your feedback Kevin, I am keen to allow the conversation to flow better and better so that editing is not required. That, and I am loathe to do it. I will make an effort to have episodes available monthly. It's a good goal for me to be better organized in my approach to this. I want to have a female as my next guest. Have yet to decide whom that may be.

Here is a link to a Google sheet where you can find other hosting places than just iTunes.

Great question Eli. At first when I read it, I thought, damn, you're right, why didn't I think of that. Now, as Gavin envisioned, he gives us this rich response. In particular, I like to see “how relentless his work ethic is on every single hand”. I just added that to my bridge journal. I keep a list of inspiring quotes in there. I can see how that type of intensity is the difference between a middling and world class player.

That's the thing I am discovery, that being really good at something is not some great mystery. Rather it takes working really hard to master your craft. Yes, some people are exceptional at their craft, but how do they get there and maintain it. I think that here Gavin has given us a very important glimpse. My attitude, at the table, far too often, is that I am waiting for an “important” hand to come up. Either that or waiting for the result. One of us is a sponsor, the other is a professional, any guesses as to which one is which?

Lost in my haste to get this out into the world is a big thank you to both Gavin and Bridgewinners. Gavin, thank you for so generously your time and insights. I have been putting a lot of them into practice at the table since. Bridgewinners, thank you for featuring the podcast for the community.

If that does not work, this link should, although I’m not sure how to download from here.
