Bridge

Bridge was introduced in the late 19th century and is a derivative of Whist which appeared in England in the 16th century. Today's popular version "Contract Bridge" was perfected by Harold S. Vanderbilt, American multi-millionaire and three-time America's Cup winner, in 1925. It incorporated many of the most popular principles and also produced a scoring table.
The game of bridge is as rich in strategies and tactics as chess, but it is a much more social game where four players play in teams of two against each other. There is also a larger surprise component since you do not see the cards your opponents hold whereas in chess you clearly see your opponents position and you can study it in detail.

College Bridge Series Second Semester

Chris Hasney

College Bridge Series Second Semester by Chris Hasney2nd semester contains only 11 prepared lessons, several of which can be assigned as homework reading. This allows instructors time to complete any unfinished work from 1st semester and still have extra time for integrating new members into the club, final prep for online College Bowl competition, etc. It should be noted that the rules for the competition have changed. You now have two chances (one each semester) to qualify, but they occur much earlier in the calendar year in fall and winter. Adapt and overcome.

Originally I had planned to integrate match point play and full 2/1 Game Force...

Bridge's Strangest Hands

Andrew Ward

Bridge's Strangest Hands by Andrew WardThis collection of oddities shows how Contract Bridge has played its part in embezzlement, murder, suicide, kidnapping, imprisonment and battle. The stories feature similar hands to those of bridge - the complete misfit, the two-way slam and men against women - while others, like 'Thirteen Spades' and 'The Raspberry Jam Conundrum', are closer to fantasy. Adaptations of the game, such as Nullo Bridge and Egdirb, are also included. Every hand in this ebook is a winner. Unless, of course, you were the player who was dealt thirteen hearts but bid diamonds by mistake.
