Bridge Club
about me

Since 1976 I've owned and operated bridge clubs in New York City. For the past four plus years that club has been Honors. We currently run 19,000 duplicate tables a year, but we are most proud of the dozens of classes, the now ten rubber bridge sessions, and the five games for players with fewer than 50 master points, that we offer every week. I'm 1st Alternate on the BoG representing Unit 155 and a member of Steve Moese's BOG Teacher and Club Manager Committee. My second beginner book "A Taste of Bridge" was just published by Master Point Press.

For forty years I tried in vain to find ways for our member clubs to work hand in hand with our local Unit board. Being so totally ineffective on a local level naturally discouraged me from seeking any political involvement on a national level till last year.  Our Unit is but a microcosm of what's happening throughout the country. The time is ripe for people with experience and ideas to step up. 

I'm encouraged by the feeling of a perfect storm on the horizon. Everyone seems to be buying into the need to find new ways to grow our organization. With so much talent and energy behind us, good things will happen.

Alan, Maybe this could open a whole discussion on "special" games. Our three clubs, Honors, Cavendish, and Aces, first independently, and now as one, have been cutting back on these costly games. The reason is simple economics. As our playing population has aged, extra master point games barely seem to ...

I just reread part of a thread that suggested that while the European Bridge community has been busy trying to have bridge be called a sport, whether you agree or not, the net effect was that it did produce about two million pounds worth of free advertisement in the form ...

BeB is working on a whole area for the beginning student. It will include simple suit combinations and 4 to 6 card endings. Try looking at in again in about two months. Right now I carefully select the hands I want my beginning students to work on.

Joan, Have you tried the Israeli online program Best e-Bridge for teaching support? And if you like putting the cart before the horse, A Taste of Bridge talks about bidding for the first time on page 101.
Online Presentations
There are so many hands out there that are classic teaching hands. These must be available to share. No one even knows who the first one was to create a given hand. We now have at least three different groups working on bridge teaching hand libraries. The ACBL must encourage ...

Exactly. I qualified it with an 'if'...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
I'm one of the "advertisers" this article appears to be aimed at. I know it may be hard to believe but I just saw this thread and it is way too long to wade through, so maybe this has been said before. I cannot believe the amount of work ...
