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!

Do you know the new director of the Ed Foundation Adam? Her name is Kristen Frederick and she is featured in the July 2019 Bulletin James Holzhauer). I am going to send her an email tonight.

SMH Debbie!
Second Thoughts about U31 Junior Event
Peg, There is something similar in amateur golf. Mid-Amateur events are open to non professionals over 25. Here is a summary of the logic from Wikipedia: The USGA specifically intended the Mid-Am as a championship for post-college golfers who were not pursuing golf as a career, as virtually all golfers ...

Chris, You are certainly entitled to your opinion. My friend Orman Kimbrough's son had a different experience. https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/highly-recommend-attending-a-screening-of-double-dummy/
