Linda Lee — My personal bridge blog

Thinking Good Thoughts

Today is a half day of work and then we shut down for the holidays.  The Master Point Press folks are heading out to the big Chinese Buffet.  In the paper this morning there was a lovely article which talked about an experiment in Australia which proved that if you were dieting you were “stupider”.  After lunch we will all be very smart.  That is a happy thought.

I really like the Hazel Nutt blog which is a parody of T’was A Night Before Christmas about a visit from Professor Love and the atmosphere in a bridge game involving a married couple.  Take a look.A Visit From Doctor Love.

I have had a great response to my request for bridge hands and also a comment or two from readers of the original book with some corrections.  I would like to thank everyone who helped and if you have any squeezes you want to share then send them to me  Right now I am planning for a free download of 20-25 hands in January.  As I accumulate more hands I may create another download.  Every hand provided directly to me by email is acknowledged in the download and I send you a rough version of my analysis so you can comment on it if you wish.  I think this squeeze cache will provide a great resources for practice for all of us. 

I was realizing that besides lunch today, we were having a big group over on Friday for turkey and then on New Years we are having a Julia Child themed dinner party.  Boy am I going to be smart by New Year’s Day.

I have several bridge games set up on BBO.  Luise’s dad Manny told me that he was fed up watching me play with bad bridge players so I promised I would play with some good ones.  I like going online some times, playing two or three hands with any random partner.   I know you may find this strange.

Its an exciting world we live in and I look forward to 2010 and all it brings.  Happy Holidays.
