Bridge is a game that takes time to learn

Bridge is a very interesting card game. It is not a game that can be learned in one session.

To the Editor:

Bridge is a very interesting card game. It is not a game that can be learned in one session. Some of the best players in the world find the game is still a challenge after 30 or 40 years.  There are some very good players at the local senior’s centre. People who have never played bridge are not qualified to make judgements.

Sometimes a player may leave his chair if he is in the dummy position. If a stranger tries to claim the empty chair, he will be told that he can’t sit there because someone is coming back.

He may feel not welcome, which is not really true, but it should be explained.

If you have a good memory and are lucky at cards, you may enjoy a game of bridge.
