I learned to play bridge close to 20 years ago with a group of women. Our teachers were patient and kind as this is a complicated game to learn. There are so many nuances and rules. Once you get the basics and establish your etiquette you can play anywhere - as long as you can find 4 players. I'm not a particularly skilled player. In fact my bridge friends have called my playing "kamikaze style." I love to take risks with mediocre hands and either win the round or go down in flames. I highly recommend that anyone wanting to learn the game needs to purchase The New Bridge Complete by
Charles H. Goren. It was and still is essential in my bridge education.
My bridge group in Virginia is comprised of some of my favorite people. Eight of us met twice a month, rotating between members houses. The evening was full of fun, fellowship and food. My 3 favorite things. But now I'm only a substitute member. Whenever I'm in town I make sure to send an email around noting my availability. Or I schedule an "alternate bridge" night with a table of 4. I love the game, the chatter and the friendly competition.
My goal this year is to find that fourth and create a Texas bridge group. Let me know if your interested. Just know I bid a short club and love to be left in no trump!
