about me

Double Dummy is available for download or rental at https://vimeo.com/ondemand/doubledummy

As an 18 year old freshman at the University of Virginia, I learned how to play bridge for the first time. My aunt Kathleen, visiting for my grandfather's funeral, said the following as I explained the house rules for Hearts, "this is stupid we should be playing Bridge." Despite what I remember as an initial protest, Kathleen won out and I don't think I played Hearts again for at least 20 years.

The first seven years of my bridge playing career were spent sporadically enjoying a game when home with my parents. My older sister Melissa often filled out those games. Sometimes, a neighbor or couple would come join us. It still boggles the mind, that I lived in New York City, for slightly less than two years after graduating, and it never even occurred to me to look for a bridge game!

If I am dealt 4 points or less, must I give all of my high cards to dummy?
Fitting Card
Kit, Excellent article, inferential highlights below: The heart suit is great,particularly with the ruffs taken in partner's hand. Partner is a good favorite to hold at least 5 diamonds, since his only distribution which doesn't have 5 diamonds is a 4-4-4-1 hand. It is more likely that ...
