An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers
Friends, I apologize for the length of this post. Because this thread has had some relevance to recent correspondence I had with ACBL officials, and because I am in sympathy with posts expressing distress at the farcical state of the masterpoint system, I am posting that correspondence for what good ...
Help Needed
The deal appeared — no source given — in “Sheinwold on Bridge” on December 11, 1993. Freddy was apt to recycle deals, so quite possibly he used it before then. I suspect the deal goes back many more decades. In the Thirties, people with time on their hands were fond of constructing ...
A Bridge Swifty
“Our system notes are incomplete,” Tom said listlessly. “There was an earthquake during the tournament,” Tom said shakily. “We’ll eat between sessions, and I’ll bless the meal,” Tom said gracefully.
A Bridge Swifty
“Ever played bridge in a cemetary?” Tom asked gravely. “Accidents will happen,” Captain Hook spoke offhandly. “I bid that hand well,” the Venus de Milo said disarmingly.
Poll: Is “Plain Blackwood” Ever Played by “High-Level” Pairs?
Edgar Kaplan — and I think everyone would agree that he was a capable bidding theorist — disdained Keycard Blackwood. Two of his points were, first, that the king of trumps is not an ace, no matter what anybody says, and sometimes you want to be at slam if that king and ...
NABC Bulletins, Do They Need to Be as They Are?
To consider deal submissions, write up what is deemed acceptable, edit, double-check the analysis, write other copy, proofread, make up the pages, and end up producing a Daily Bulletin that is organized, accurate, comprehensive and interesting, all under deadline pressure in the wee hours ... that is no easy task. I ...
AARP Could Be Used to Promote Bridge
A couple of years ago, “AARP The Magazine” or one of its sister publications did a story on competitive bridge. They interviewed people who had won major Seniors events. At that time I contacted AARP with a proposal for a bridge column. After some difficulty, I spoke with a senior ...
Retired Justice John Paul Stevens, Associate Justice, SCOTUS
In 1984, prior to the Summer Nationals in Washington, Justice Stevens played in a Congress-Parliament match that I helped cover for the Bulletin. The deals and play had been recorded, but the account of one deal I wanted to use was incomplete. I called the Supreme Court, got a law ...
Thanks, Fred Gitelman
I have never had the pleasure of meeting Fred Gitelman, but I am well aware of the extraordinary impact he and those who supported him have made on the game. His vision and resolve have changed the face of bridge, and for the better. You can take your retirement, Fred ...
What killed American Bridge--a Poll from the Year 2040.
Mr. Clayton, I can’t speak for my colleagues, but I routinely report some deals from every NABC. A year or two ago I ran an entire week of columns touting the many rewards of playing duplicate bridge and the benefits of ACBL membership. I have also made occasional references ...
