Confused old man
I can relate to your problem and I have a lot of sympathy for the position you're in, but is it really so bad that it "ruins" the game for everyone? I've dealt with several players like Harry during the decades I've been running club games. They ...
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
Dan Requard passed away a year ago. He played tournament bridge for a few years after he was readmitted, but was inactive in recent years.
Zero Tolerance Card in Club Games
A local married couple printed and laminated "Sorry, partner" cards and added them to the bidding boxes. Much more useful than ZT cards.
What bridge really needs to become relevant again.
Another program for the not-to-do list was Easybridge, which was ACBL's attempt to dumb-down the game. The theory was that if people got hooked on an ultra-simplified form of bridge, they would move on to playing in their local club games and tournaments. That general concept might have been ...
What bridge really needs to become relevant again.

A Request from Ms Manners

A Request from Ms Manners
Some are non-native English speakers . . . and some are men. In general, women are better at being diplomatic and courteous in written communication. Men tend to be more "economical" in expressing themselves -- they blurt out their opinions without adding the extra words that might soften a criticism. I concede that you ...
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
To me, a convicted cheater with any redeeming qualities at all would be so shamed that he would bar himself for life. I don't understand why these criminals would even want to force themselves back into the bridge world and deal with the contempt and suspicions. Unless, of course ...
A Recommendation for USA Bridge
Online publication would save a lot of money on printing and postage, but there are other downsides that defeat the magazine's purpose. A printed magazine is a tangible benefit of membership. It enhances engagement and communication with members because it's in their homes, where they may pick it ...
