Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
The first night of rubber bridge with my parents and grandparents where I finally got to play a few hands.
Bridge Accomplishments
Once played a few hands online with a BW poster (randomly was seated at their table) and I think I managed to not frustrate them to the point of booting me.

Fantoni live on BBO
I was with you right up to the naming/shaming part. As others have said, BBO provides a tool and platform as a service to the bridge community (and, of course, to turn a profit). If they were to get into the business of policing international bridge - a kind of ...
Online NABC - Congrats to Phil Clayton
Well done, Phil! Congratulations!
A better rating system
I don't like the 'best 25 consecutive' rating thing... but it's fine to tag someone's record with the peak rating they've ever achieved as a vanity/congratulatory thing. Calculate their 'current' rating based on their most recent N results and timebox it to discard ancient history ...
Jumping the Gun (WBF World Electronic Bridge Championship)
Tom, genuine question here: Is there difference the _remote_ locations of the players relative to one another or the 'online'/technological implications of using tablets at the table rather than cards? Or both?
Ten Endgames for Budding Bridge Fans
These are great! I've got a small group of people at a summer camp we attend who, year on year, have been getting interested in bridge. Another gentleman there focuses them on bidding, but I think simple play problems like this get to the heart of why the game ...
The Kids Table: There is Such a Thing as Bad Publicity
100% that. With the rise of the eurogaming phenomenon, Bridge's complexity and social aspects fit right in with what everyone is already looking to _play_. The problem is not the game, but our presentation of it and our seeming inability to welcome people whose knowledge of its secrets aren ...
The Kids Table: There is Such a Thing as Bad Publicity
I think the author's point re: the movie isn't to fault the filmmakers for highlighting the "age problem" we have in bridge. I read her as saying that the movie is youthfully derogatory about *eyeroll* old people - as if young people won't generally enjoy the game because ...
Hasta la vista, visa?
If you think there won't be avenues for cheating via people utilizing tablets, I have real estate to sell you. :) FWIW, I agree that tablets offer some great benefits and I think that they're perfectly acceptable in lieu of handheld playing cards. I still disagree, though, with the ...
Hasta la vista, visa?
I'm a complete novice compared to most people here and lurk mainly to try to learn something along the way... But this post is doubly interesting to me as a technology advocate/worker and as a bridge fan. As other posters have highlighted, there is something completely different about ...
Hasta la vista, visa?
... and in the unique pressures that come from competing in that special environment.
