Matt Smith Promotion
I took 35 years off playing bridge and met Matt when he was directing a tiny sectional in Rossland BC. He quickly figured out I knew how to play the game, helped me find good partners and generally made my return to bridge pleasant. I have never seen him make ...
Decisions of the Appeals & Charges Committee, November 2016

Est. # of top 16 Vanderbilt cheaters.
until we get the big money out of top level bridge there are going to be cheaters.
Whispers, Rumors and a Crescendo
Ross has hit it. I was out of bridge for 35 years and was astonished when I returned that the game I love has become a professional sport. Of course there's going to be cheating when people can make so much money playing. Maybe we need a discussion thread ...
