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!

Do defensive beers count if diamonds are trumps?
We're on it Chris, thanks for the suggestion. Greg Humphreys, will certainly be given the opportunity to explain his beer card tattoo. Do you suggest anyone else?
World championships individual
Sjoert, I love that you shared your list of the top 32 players in the world. When Adam Grossack told me such a list existed, I couldn't wait to see it. I think the tournament is a great idea, and I wonder how many of your invitees will join ...
Play 6!d here
I would have played ace of hearts and then queen of hearts
Unprecedented opportunity to teach new people bridge (help needed)
Tracey, I was thinking about writing the same exact post. Thank you for writing it. I will put you in touch with Amaresh, mentioned by Dave above. It actually might make sense to record something too.
