The Aces on Bridge: Saturday, January 9th, 2021

Hi Everyone,

While today’s hand figures to be and is, a real defensive test to even a seasoned veteran of the top-level game, my thoughts go to why our site has not been visited by many of our regulars (not necessary to be named, but always so very popular and respected).

It makes me worry that the recent disastrous problem which befell us, causing an outage for too long, has somehow resulted in a possible
terminal exclusion of a number of our most valued bridge minds.

While not intentionally trying to interfere with
other desires nor opinions I just wanted to confirm how much I personally miss your candid
and right-on bridge analysis as well as your most positive personalities which, at least to me and I suspect all other readers, who were able to hear what you had to say, the candid way you explained it and most importantly, why!

Perhaps (and I hope) the above was just an adjustment period, but if there is something I need to know, I would love to find out for, as you can guess, several different reasons, the most important one being and, of course, the bridge intelligence all of you brought to everyone lucky enough to hear what you had to say.

HI Bobby,

Don’t worry, I’m sure the usual suspects will soon be back online. After all, I’m sure we’re all still reading the column!

Hi Iain,

Certainly hope so and if push comes to shove I still plan on having the pleasure of being in your presence at some time in the next phase of life, whatever it might be. TABLE UP!
