Hoping to improve my game by osmosis and sporadic uncoordinated efforts. So far, it's a slow process.

The ACBL: a Byword for Incompetence?
Of course it's not a free lunch -- the costs are just covered elsewhere, and the players are paying for it, whether they eat the lunch or not. Makes me think of the airlines, where they're now charging for every little thing. I actually like this -- if I don ...
The ACBL: a Byword for Incompetence?

The cost of a bridge game
In Denver, the two largest clubs are both privately owned, and rent commercial space. They charge $10 or $11 for a game, depending on day of the week. You can set up a prepaid account and get a discount of $0.50 per game. One provides a meal (main dish ...
What are your responses if playing Ogust?
Absolutely. Mediocre mediocre.
What are your responses if playing Ogust?
Somebody once defined good suit for me as: "Has the potential to take five tricks if you can lead up to it enough." This has worked well for me.
