He Can Still Play

For the first time in a long time I managed to convince Ray to play a game of bridge.  I am not sure why he doesn’t want to play any more and maybe you can convince him.  If everyone who read this sent him a little bit of encouragement it would help.  Here is one of the deals from tonight.  You might not love the bidding but the defense was cool.

HIs hand was


Nobody Vulnerable

West Ray East Linda
1 2
Dbl 3 5 pass
pass Dbl all pass

If you think Ray underbid just a tiny bit than you have probably guessed who overbid (a tiny bit?)  Anyway I led the Q and this was dummy


Ray won the A and from Ray’s hand it was pretty obvious what I was doing.  He returned a heart and I trumped it the 10 went to the J and his Q and I ruffed another heart.  As it turned out I still had the A to come.  I had overcalled on:


Do you hate my bid?  I didn’t want to bid 3 and lose the spade suit.   Plus 500 was worth a bit more than 6 imps.  Ray had an all round good set with good dummy play, good defense and good bidding.  He put up with me too.  So come on Ray you can play a bit more.

You make the mistake of connecting Ray’s choice not to play bridge with a lack of faith in his abilities… I really don’t think his skill level factored at all into the decision to quit. The real question one should be asking is: Did Ray enjoy the game when you were playing together? 😉

Yes he did enjoy the game but he was annoyed that our opponents kept leaving the table after a board or two. I told him to ignore that part.

My next question: Did he enjoy the game more than he would have enjoyed doing a couple missions in his online RPG?

That you will have to ask him.
