Carolyn and I played DUPLICATE or CONTRACT bridge this weekend, but normally we just play for fun. There’s a HUGE difference which I won’t attempt to explain. You’re welcome.
You know me, you’ve met Carolyn, so here are the other members of our AWESOME crew.
Positive Patty – the Mentor.
Strengths – Finds something positive to say about everything. “You raised me with only 1 trump? Well, that’s 1 they don’t have.”
Weaknesses: Way too NICE to opponents. Complimenting someone on their outfit is not very intimidating.
Mother – the Matriarch.
Strengths – Has been playing bridge for almost 90 years. She’s been there, trumped that.
Weaknesses – Has trouble seeing. Which means she can only set you THREE tricks instead of four.
Vicki – the Newbie.
Strengths – Learns quickly.
Weaknesses – She’s learning from US.
Oh well. Bad bridge is better than no bridge at all.
