Bridge is not my WHOLE life, at least not yet. But I am having a lot of fun playing in tournaments in the West. I used to run a couple duplicate bridge games in Hayward and San Leandro in the 70s and early 80s and partnered with other bridge club owners. I "retired" from bridge in 1981 just before getting married. About 20 years later I started playing like a maniac again. After getting into Genealogy in 2007y, I've cut back a bit on my bridge playing, but still like to attend local special events.

I've served on my local ACBL Board of Directors in South County and Diablo Valley Units. I have authored a number of web sites to help bridge club directors get their results on the internet and advertise unit bridge events. The three local (to me) ACBL Units are:

  1. Unit 499 - Diablo Valley
  2. Unit 500 - Southern Alameda County
  3. Unit 501 - Livermore Valley including Livermore and Pleasanton Bridge Clubs

Other interesting Bridge Links

  1. Chris Pisarra's totally unauthorized Blog - About the life of a bridge player in Contra Costa County - Very entertaining. Try to review his escapades in Gatlinburg. Good Restaurant reviews.
  2. (see below)
  3. - Put together by Gavin Wolpert. Excellent source of high-level bridge articles
  4. is one of the most extensive coverage of bridge conventions.

Have you tried BridgeBase yet? It's one of the best on-line bridge websites that allows playing in all types of bridge matches including ACBL masterpoint tournaments. They use a default convention card called the General Convention Card. Most enjoyable are their Vugraph, real-world real-time bridge matches, especially the NABC Spring/Summer Vanderbitl/Spingold KO finals.

See you at the bridge table!
