about me

Striving to become an Advanced+ Level Bridge Player. Fairly enjoyable but also quite demanding & challenging quest.


To enjoy more of the game, I prefer to play KISS 2/1 systems (like ) and cut down on infertile system discussions (pointless touring in the labyrinth), and focus on concentration, counting, partnership handling & common mistakes.

Why do you play bridge?
Pleasure of solving complex problems. Estimated risk taking. Overcoming challenges. Ego Gratification. Continuous learning & developing. And time really flies if you are in good company.
An E-book from Chennai

Does Chess Mastery Foretell Bridge Knack?
Good description. Perhaps, a better one could be "playing chess and poker simultaneously" while trying to dance/tango in harmony with your partner.

Yes, it really sounds very scientific. I suggest to have a look on these; (Larry Cohen's system suggestion: "not for beginners and not for National Champions, but for anyone in between") (by Eugene Hung and Larry Cohen ...
Why is it so hard to find a new partner?
Recently I've read a book written by Marshall Miles (Inferences at Bridge). A final comment of the writer was included at the end of book, saying that; "If you got all the problems right (or if you agreed with my answers, right or wrong) on all quizzes,please let ...
