You Know You Are A Bridge Player When....
When you make your husband stop the car in the middle of that creaky bridge and back up so you can get a photo of the sign.
You Know You Are A Bridge Player When....
At a long-ago regional in Decatur IL, a man had a heart attack at Barry Crane's table during the Wednesday Men's Team event. Two players administered CPR until the ambulance arrived. The man died at the hospital later that day. On Saturday, his wife was back at the ...

This is a poker book, but not a ...
BBO format
I haven't seen any comments that claim BBO does nothing or that anyone has a "right" to a certain type of product. It is a real stretch to conclude that these posters are trying to tell BBO how to run their business. Neither have I seen anything that should ...
BBO format
No, but they deliver value to BBO by developing new bridge players, signing up new BBO members, generating more ad views and increasing participation in pay events.
