Anyone who blogs about bridge may be interested in the software I use to create bridge diagrams. You can find out about it by clicking on the Bridge Tools link in the menu-bar at the top of this page.
I’ve been playing a bit more bridge lately, both face-to-face at a local club and online (BBO). One consequence is that I’ve been putting up more articles on this website.
I also took the opportunity to review the website and have made some changes. I hope you like them.
If you ask most young people today, they would say ”LOL“ stands for ”Laughing Out Loud“; but if you ask bridge players, they are more likely to say ”Little Old Lady“. It’s not a pejorative, but a little ironic. It tends to come up in conversations like:
It has been a while since I wrote anything about bridge. Part of that is that I have not been playing or directing for some time.
I have debated whether or not to talk about this, as I am not sure anyone is really interested. However, I realized that if I do write about it, people can just ignore the post — assuming anyone knows it exists in the first place!
The issue revolves around why I play the game and have occasionally taught and directed games. I have played bridge, off and on, all my adult life (with a 15-year hiatus early in my working career). I play bridge because it is a fascinating and addicting game. Also, I am not very good at socializing and playing bridge has given me an opportunity to meet and interact with people.
