Why did you stop playing bridge in clubs, if you did?
But they will progress a lot faster practicing bidding online, and then playing set games against good competition. Twenty hands an hour against an A pair is much more effective than twenty-six hands in three and a half hours against a weak field.
Why are men more successful at bridge than women?
Interesting. According to the organizer the pairings were made by a computer program which presumably does not consider the player's sex. IT should be easy to investigate.

Why are men more successful at bridge than women?

Can Opener Pass After Reverse?
What they usually mean is that opener's reverse doesn't promise the usual strength, so after 1 1, they may rebid 2 on xAQxxKJxKJxxx

How do I feel about psychs - two hands in follow-up
I have no sympathy for players who lose a tournament event and whine about it instead of learning from the experience. What did they expect? It's a contest. Tennis players don't whine when their opponent serves aces. Billiard players don't whine when their opponent plays a good ...
