about me

I am a player, club owner and unit official living in Fernie - a city of less than 5,000 located in South-Eastern British Columbia, Canada. 

By far, bridge is the best card game going -  just wish I were better.  I do know that the more I know,  the more I realize I don't know!

"Sleeping on the Couch". Sounds like a good name for a book! :)
How long should it take?
As you say, there are several factors which will affect things but my experience, while not extensive, is about 2-3 months to be competitive in a beginner game. An intermediate game is more likely in the 9-12 month range.
ACBL Club Department
Not only was Carol a caring and competent resource for all of my club questions, she always was able to point me in the right direction for any other non club inquiries I had. As Ken mentions above, I do hope that the priority of clubs at ACBL headquarters does ...
Advertising your club
Word of mouth is what has worked at my small club in a small town. I tried advertising in our local paper years ago without a single response. While our club's skill level is at the lower end of the food chain, the friendliness and hospitality is at the ...
John Diamond's bidding problem: Q3 KT73 AQ5 AJ86
Changing the pointed Queen to a round one makes the hand at least 1 trick better. I'd be more likely to X but hate the vulnerability.
John Diamond's bidding problem: Q3 KT73 AQ5 AJ86
I'm so old, I'd pass at the table. But I wouldn't be surprised if doubling is the winning action in the long run.
Fantasy Bracket not saved
I too have had no luck. Now having said that, I only this morning tried to pick my choices.
