The Aces on Bridge: Sunday, September 5th, 2021

Hi Bobby, Folks,

One quick warning for those about to go back to F2F play. I didn’t play against people during the 19 months or so that clubs have been shut, only against robots online and frequently just BBO 5 hands online. This resulted in much fast and rather sloppy play (Zia I’m not). If anyone else has developed similar bad habits in the same sort of way, you may find focussing and slowing down a little tricky at first, although seeing people is great compensation of course.

Best of luck though!

Hi Iain,

Thanks for your sage advice about re-entering our favorite table, which has been called both The “temple of doom” and/or “The place to give tricks away”.

However, to heck with focusing or slowing down, since what some thinkal peep I am is none of their beesnest.

Furthermore I will start out doing exactly what you suggest by paying my debts with seeing people. And since I ain’t got no bad habits, I’ll continue to seek out others, but the wons I no
don’t wantta see me.
