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.
Bridge Accomplishments
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.

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.
Contract Bridge
I've been teaching my kids Hool and they love it. The older kids have already 'systematized' their bidding a bit. More importantly, it's gotten us to the best part of Bridge - the cardplay, whether declaring or defending - while still having a meaningful auction.
Fantoni live on BBO
I was with you right up to the naming/shaming part. As others have said, BBO provides a tool and platform as a service to the bridge community (and, of course, to turn a profit). If they were to get into the business of policing international bridge - a kind of ...
Online NABC - Congrats to Phil Clayton
Well done, Phil! Congratulations!
A better rating system
I don't like the 'best 25 consecutive' rating thing... but it's fine to tag someone's record with the peak rating they've ever achieved as a vanity/congratulatory thing. Calculate their 'current' rating based on their most recent N results and timebox it to discard ancient history ...
Jumping the Gun (WBF World Electronic Bridge Championship)
Tom, genuine question here: Is there difference the _remote_ locations of the players relative to one another or the 'online'/technological implications of using tablets at the table rather than cards? Or both?
Ten Endgames for Budding Bridge Fans
These are great! I've got a small group of people at a summer camp we attend who, year on year, have been getting interested in bridge. Another gentleman there focuses them on bidding, but I think simple play problems like this get to the heart of why the game ...
The Kids Table: There is Such a Thing as Bad Publicity
100% that. With the rise of the eurogaming phenomenon, Bridge's complexity and social aspects fit right in with what everyone is already looking to _play_. The problem is not the game, but our presentation of it and our seeming inability to welcome people whose knowledge of its secrets aren ...
