Bad Habits of Intermediates
All roads may lead to Rome(x?), but some require scuba gear.
The cost of a bridge game
I'll provide the amounts at what Google says the exchange rate with sterling is today. I live in a large-ish city in Canada (approx. 1.3 million metropolitan area, in a close three-way tie for fourth-largest in the country). The bottom of the range for ACBL-sanctioned games seems to ...
