Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
The first night of rubber bridge with my parents and grandparents where I finally got to play a few hands.

Once played a few hands online with a BW poster (randomly was seated at their table) and I think I managed to not frustrate them to the point of booting me.
Favorite Conventions

Kibitzers always welcome
Yu, I know that is the hoped for outcome... but I think there definitely _has_ been discussion of barring kibs in the event that 'tape delay' is not quickly forthcoming. I believe that's not the greatly desired endgame, but it's there all the same. Fundamentally, I'm not ...
Kibitzers always welcome
I am no Bridge-winner... But I do aspire to be a Bridge-no-longer-failure and love this little game of ours. I recognize that I'm not the target audience of this site, but I'm precisely the kind of viewer this post addresses. I've learned more, I imagine, from kibitzing ...
Appealing to a Wider Audience
We don't want to oversell online bridge to the detriment of face-to-face bridge. But we also don't want to undersell the accessibility (esp to a younger generation) of online bridge. It's not a lesser game... it's just different.

Thanks, John! Already burned through this and eager for the next.
How to make notes with suit symbols?

You da realest MVP.
Seeking Technical Co-Founder for HOOL
This is, in my limited experience, one of the cool things about Hool. Once the basics of the game (tricks, how NT works, how fits work to take tricks, how high to play, etc) all start to make sense, you can start working to 'encode' the bidding language of Hool ...
A "friendly" game
I voted for David's answer above... The real question is what are _you_ playing for, in this case? If I truly don't care about the score and just want the challenge, then me being passive while they take the hardline is no problem. I can still have a ...
More-than-occasional, online, 2/1 partner?
FWIW: At this point, my criteria are getting mighty flexible... Just like in real personal ads. ;) Thanks for the wishes.
