I played with Leo Weniger in two events of the St. John’s Sectional this past weekend. Leo was visiting from Halifax and one of the things that made this such a great experience for me was Leo’s conduct at the table. I have never played in very many tournaments, but have played in a few — from Club championships, Sectionals, Regionals, Nationals, Zonals and one (former) World Bridge Olympiad. It doesn’t take many tournaments to get a feel for the general deportment.
I both direct games and play. I try very hard not to get roped into doing both at the same time! That is a topic unto itself.
Bridge players from the St. John‘s area did well in various 2013 Masterpoint competitions. There are two ACBL competitions, the Mini-McKenney that counts all Masterpoints won during the year and the Helen Shanbrom Ace of Clubs Award that only counts Masterpoints won in club-level games during the year.
I was searching the Internet for some bridge information and happened across Larry Cohen’s web site, which I spent a bit of time browsing. I’d like to share with you some of his views on how one should conduct oneself at the bridge table:
It’s a brief article with a few graphics. Although he doesn’t mention the Laws, a number of his suggestions are how the Laws say one should act. I have a lot of respect for Larry Cohen.
Larry is also a frequent contributor to the ACBL Bridge Bulletin.
