Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Playing with Adrian Hicks
ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Let the cards speak, not the time it takes to play them!
That is timpani.
Are tablets the great enablers of live bridge tournaments?
Until about one month ago I would have agreed completely. I did not play online bridge and liked the physical sensation of the cards. But now I am a convert. It took only a short while. I particuarly like the self-alerting which solves so many troublesome problems
Five Second Rule
Good advice - and I certainly have enough time to practice!
Faulty BBO
I am new to BBO, just started about 2 weeks ago. Here is a silly question - how do they make money? It seems like a fabulous platform to me, and I don't see any ads?
Undo or No undo ?
I must admit - I am new to online bridge. I come from the world of online poker. Ask for an undo in that game and see what happens!

Should The Pass be Disallowed after the Pause
But if 5H is an "accept" and showing Aces along the way, how is it possible for North to be signing off?? He can't possibly be requiring THREE aces. If the explanation of the auction is correct, than 5NT makes no sense.
Never a Senior
Hi Rich - I am in the same boat as you - born in 1959. I think you are correct - we will have to be very old before being eligible for senior events. I think the ACBL should simply designate seniors,as of Jan 1 20120, as those who are 80 year ...
