Closing the Club an Owners Perspective
The place you rent from is a church? Oh my God....
I Got Coronavirus Playing Bridge
Thanks for the detailed description. Considering what we all now know (or should know, for nonbelievers) about corvid-19, it's clear that bridge tournaments can be equated to an ideal Petri dish for spreading the corona culture. Lots of people, close proximity even with the best possible precautions, frequent switching ...
R.I.P. Jim Mahaffey
Jim Mahaffey wasn't the first Mahaffey bridge player. Tom Mahaffey, who I believe was his father, was a prominent player in the 1960s, organizing and captaining expert teams on a regional, and I believe a national, level as well.
Remembering My Dad
And, Matthew, for your benefit Bobby Thompson hit what was called "the shot heard round the world," a 3-run homer off Ralph Branca which won the 1951 3-game playoff (the regular season ended in a tie) for the Giants over the Dodgers, from NY and Brooklyn respectively.
Remembering My Dad

What does partner's double of GF 2!c opener indicate?
Partner's intention was majors, which I missed entirely because undiscussed. He apparently plays that with other partners. More I think about it, more I wonder whether showing two-suiters is really worthwhile, considering that the opps almost certainly have a preponderance of the strength and passage of information is more ...
Thank you Zia!
Amazing! An example for all to follow -- even those of us who don't have the talent of Mariusz and Zia.
Too Conservative or just Unlucky?—ATB?
Who's to blame? The field, I'd contend. West has an absolute max for his/her bidding, and the game is still less than 50%, East has less than no reason to bid on over 3. Drury? It really doesn't help a great deal, depends on East ...
Massimo Lanzarotti in Vanderbilt
With all due respect, the issue is not whether you Avon, or I, or Bobby Wolff or anyone else agrees with the ACBL ruling; at this point, that's immaterial. The practical problem raised, however, is very pressing -- Should players drawn against a team with Lanzarotti as a member sit ...
