Bridge Players and the movie world
Simon, very funny as to the inflections. But that is good acting -- making it real. If I were on set as a consultant I would have done exactly the same. However, in real life, I was always amused/infuriated by "one heart", "a heart,' "I'll bid hearts" etc. Reminds ...
Bridge Players and the movie world
George Burns. I regret that I didn't ask for a game when I did a series of commercials with him in the 80s.
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Randy, I have no disagreement with what you say. It would be a herculean undertaking that wouldn't satisfy everyone. My point is that decisions like the software issues, Hawaiian junket, tolerance of unethical pairs, the pursuit of Olympic status and other stumbles is that the league may self-destruct and ...

Orlando Team Schedule Revisions
I doubt if the venue is the reason for the seemingly paltry North American participation. Could it be disillusionment with the WBF, its response to cheating, and has been noted here, the drug regulations that would require physicians to sign off on the medications taken by the over 50 set ...
Thank You Lew Stansby
I was also struck by Lew's comment: “It’s time to acknowledge that bridge is never going to be an Olympic sport. Except for drug testing and decisions of committees of bridge players being overturned by courts, I haven’t seen much progress.” It's encouraging to see a ...
What event would you play in?
Open Pairs is first choice. BAM is second.
ACBL CEO: Post-Mortem
Ray -- that is a YUGE point!
