Partnerships are a work in progress. The initial ingredients in a partner are innate intelligence and passion for the game, and we go on from there. I was fortunate to recently find a partner who is a computer science expert, has the gift of total recall, a wonderful even temperment, studies the game, plays the cards well, and is newly retired. We started to ascend in the rankings at the club we joined, and within a few months won the club championship. Every mistake we make we correct,& we go over the hand records and discuss how we can do better next time. Every game is a happy experience.
Notice I didn't say I wanted a partner based on his bidding system or his masterpoints or his blue ribbon collection…
I value most of all that my partner is very very bright. He has no limitations.

Wrong. Don't.
Play on BBO until you find someone with whom you are compatible.

@Greg… The intermediate and advanced club on BBO, IABC, is meant for people just like you. Hondo171 teaches every Wednesday evening and would be very happy for you to sit at his table, a teaching environment. You get to play the hands, and discuss plays and bidding as they happen. You will meet friendly people at your own level and develop partnerships on BBO, and probably in real life, and improvement in play and bidding is sure to take place.
Good luck!

How do you think the stigma of the “C” word, compares with the stigma of the “P” word, Gary? Gary…??

Peg, that in itself is rude. You're depicting yourself as you are.

Ron, you are so right. Bridge winner's seems to be sinking into a toxic site. My best to you always. My husband and I enjoyed watching you play.
I wish you success in all your future tournaments.

This whole thread is disgusting. I agree with Nick. You pay officials to do their job. They did it. Finished. This thread shows that bridgewinners site is a potential threat to the whole game of bridge. Do you think I read this site and get any more respect for the game of bridge to see these rambling post game accusatory synopsis? I'm about to let bridge go…

Great answer… but in response to paragraph two.
Nerds are in, and I mean that in a nice way. Playing bridge is the best way to meet the smart guys, the ones that are the most likely to be successful. Bridge should be marketed to the gifted group at high schools, and public schools. These exist in Canada, but I'm not aware if they have these gifted programs in other countries.

This above link clears up a lot of things for me. I wondered why Hann was such a vigilante… making up for years ago…
And I suppose the method of doing so, “abrasive, pompous” hasn't changed.
Always a background story, eh, what???

So happy with the A&C committee! May all those on it live and thrive for another hundred years!
Now, I'll get on with my attempt to form another ACBL club in this area. We have the people, but I just have to motivate them, and I must say that the prior decision in the Mike Passell case sure had a dampening effect… (I had it on hold pending the outcome).
I don't hold with many of the petty views I've read above, and must admit, if I encountered many more of these opinions, I'd be out the door.

Ken, I'm expressing my true feeling and you're not coming off very well. In fact the more you speak here, the worse you come off.

There is a committee. You, bless your little soul, aren't it.

Ken Cohen, you sound like you have a personal vendetta. You've said all you should have to say on another thread. Let it go. It is none of your business, and has nothing whatsoever to do with you.
