Today's bridge quote

The real test of a bridge player isn't in keeping out of trouble, but in escaping once he's in it. - Alfred Sheinwold

Previous quotes

South: Alert! East: Yes? South: I'm requested to further misdescribe my hand.

My mind works like lightning: one brilliant flash and it's gone.

Regardless of what sadistic impulses we may harbor, winning bridge means helping partner avoid mistakes…Frank Stewart

A fellow had made a bad bid and gone down for 1400. “I’m sorry,” he said to his partner, “I had a card misplaced.” Asked his partner innocently, “Only one card?”… Charles Goren

If you have the slightest touch of masochism, you’ll love this game.

It is not the handling of difficult hands that makes the winning player. There aren’t enough of them. It is the ability to avoid messing up the easy ones….Alan Sontag 

If I did everything right, I wouldn't be playing with you.


Old bridge players never die - they just stop turning tricks.


Old bridge players never die - they just shuffle away.


A player who can’t defend accurately should try to be declarer… Alfred Sheinwold


Years ago there were only two acceptable excuses for not leading the suit your partner had opened:

having no cards in the suit, and sudden death… Alfred Sheinwold


Your play was much better tonight and so were your excuses.  


A married couple are not speaking to each other after a horrible game and are driving home from a distant bridge tournament. They pass by a field where there are many donkeys. The husband breaks the silence by asking the wife: "Relatives of yours"? "Yes" she says, "In-laws".

We play forcing hesitations.

Giving a man his physical, the doctor noticed several dark, ugly bruises on his shins, so he asked, “Do you play hockey, soccer, or some physical sport?” “No,” he answered. “I play bridge with my wife.”

We had a partnership misunderstanding. I assumed my partner knew what he was doing. - Eddie Kantar
