about me

Double Dummy is available for download or rental at https://vimeo.com/ondemand/doubledummy

As an 18 year old freshman at the University of Virginia, I learned how to play bridge for the first time. My aunt Kathleen, visiting for my grandfather's funeral, said the following as I explained the house rules for Hearts, "this is stupid we should be playing Bridge." Despite what I remember as an initial protest, Kathleen won out and I don't think I played Hearts again for at least 20 years.

The first seven years of my bridge playing career were spent sporadically enjoying a game when home with my parents. My older sister Melissa often filled out those games. Sometimes, a neighbor or couple would come join us. It still boggles the mind, that I lived in New York City, for slightly less than two years after graduating, and it never even occurred to me to look for a bridge game!

What is a "world class player"?
I think your poll is too focused on accomplishment Dave. In my mind it is the respect of one's peers that holds the most weight, echoing Jeff Bayone's comment above.

Blunders
Yes, the double dummy defense is to shift to a diamond at trick 2, but I had a read at the table and didn't back that.
