Stay at Home Bridge

Hi All,

I hope you're all well. We're doing fine here, doing stuff we'd been putting off. When I get tired of cleaning and organizing, I play hands on my Bridge Baron game. I've decided to focus my practice on the most important things.

In the good old days the best part of my game was the ability to remember almost everything. I could keep track of the cards played in each suit and the points played by each opponent. I could usually tell if a card was good or figure out which opponent must have a missing King. As I've played less and my memory gets fuzzier, I have to really concentrate and still throw away tricks when my memory fails.

I have resolved to get the most out of my practice hands by carefully counting each card and each point until it starts to be a habit again. I can't think of anything that would help my game more. If you think you don't need practice, test yourself by playing a hand and then trying to reconstruct what each opponent held. Anyway, that's how I'm spending my spring break. Try it! You'll like it.

I can hardly wait to see you all again.  Dave

Bridge during quarantine

Hi All,

I hope everyone is well. I have some time on my hands and I expect that you have too. While you're studying and practicing, you may have questions. Please feel free to send me emails if you have any questions about our lessons, hands that we've played or hands that you come up with. I'll do my best to help and it may help me to sharpen up.

On another side, if anyone is ill or tests positive for the virus, please let me know so that I can pass the word so that others can take special  care. I hope that will be nobody, but the more we know, the better.

I hope this crisis resolves as soon as possible and we can get together again. Take Care,

Dave
