Evening Bridge - PLAYERS NEEDED

Have you tried our Tuesday and Thursday evening bridge games?  Peaceful, uncrowded environment...heck, you can park right by the door!  Games are "Open" and start at 6:30pm and finish around 9:30pm. They are favored by many of our working members who can't make it to a daytime session and they would appreciate some additional tables. Give it a try!

Testing the Vu-Bridge Feature

Bridgewebs offers a feature called Vu-Bridge. It enables you to play practice hands and coaches you, in real time, if an alternative bid or play would be better.  It does everything your real partner does except roll its eyes and say "Not again!"  Its authors are based in the UK so many of the acronyms are unfamiliar to us (EBU is the English Bridge Union) and we cannot edit the contents of the boxes.

Give it a try and let us know what you think. There is no charge.
