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!

Double Dummy Day
Sam, Thank you for sharing these benefits here in this forum. I think it's important to note that you worked really hard to sell all of those tickets to the screening and the success story that is Stirling would not be possible without your dedication.

Yehudit, SiVY had a screening on January 15th earlier this year. They sold over 140 tickets, so many that we had to request a larger theater.

Liz, After responding to your query I was delighted to find out that Joan would like to spearhead the entire Australian Double Dummy Day initiative. This great to have such an established supporter in the bridge community as a partner. Please coordinate your efforts through Joan.

Hi Liz, thank you for looking up Sydney in Tugg. I spoke to my contact at Tugg and they do not in fact have what they call Cinema on Demand in Australia. I apologize for the confusion. If you make the arrangements with a theater yourself, Tugg can provide the ...

Junior Entry Fees at ACBL NABC
If a junior is playing pro, I think they should still get the discount, why penalize sponsors for hiring juniors?
