Personal Feelings About the Game of Bridge
What This Is About
Except for a 15-year hiatus from my mid-twenties through my thirties, I have been playing bridge, off and on since my last year of high school (I am now 73). I feel that I’m an ethical bridge player and I like to think that I treat my opponents with respect. But I am not going to be a hypocrite. I too sometimes get so frustrated that my emotions rather than my reason jump to the fore (when that happens, I try to make sure I apologize to my opponents and assure them that I mean it, as I do).
When my emotions do get the upper-hand, it generally has something to do with how the game is played. I beg your indulgence, but that is what this article is about — how the game is played.
