ACBL’s New Interactive Hand of the Week

ACBL’s Hand of the Week is going interactive with the new Learn to Play Bridge software. This will allow players to play the deal and solve the puzzle. Be careful, because the robots will be programmed to play Double Dummy, taking advantage of any mistakes made.

Can’t solve the puzzle? In the tip section of the deal, you can locate a path to the analysis provided by the ACBL. After you visit the site and read the solution, you can then return to Learn to Play Bridge to see how it all plays out.

Sharon Irish, Longest Day Raffle Winner, is having a blast with her favorite partners at Hunt Valley Regional Tournament. A big thanks to the Mid Atlantic Bridge Conference for augmenting our fundraising efforts to benefit Alzheimer’s research. The Longest Day Raffle, inspired by Margot Hennings, raised an additional $8,000 – 10,000 for team ACBL.

Westwood Game Held at Bridge Center Aug 7

The game that is normally held at the Westwood Club will be held at the Bridge Center on Thursday, August 7. The game starts at 10:30, and you should bring lunch.

This game is for both men and women. It encourages less experienced players playing together or advanced players playing with less experienced players. The goal is to involve more players in the bridge experience.

The location of this game may or may not be permanently changed to the Bridge Center. Paul will talk about that decision with the participants on Thursday.
