This page is for people who want to learn how to play the card game bridge, people who already know how and want to improve, and everyone else! Note: this page is under construction, so come back when I finish!

7/26/00 - Well, that didn't work so well - sorry I haven't updated the Strategies of Play section! Anyway, I was thinking - if anyone has anything they'd like to contribute to the site (in the Strategies of Play section or otherwise), drop me an e-mail at gregstoll@earthling.net either HTML formatted stuff (preferred), or plain text (I'll format it for you). I'd be happy to give you credit, or let you remain anonymous (whichever you prefer). Let's give this a shot!
4/14/00 - Really sorry I haven't updated this page in so long! College has kept me busy...anyway, I'm going to start adding stuff soon (hopefully!) after I read up some more (haven't played in a while). If there's anything in particular you want to see more of, e-mail me and let me know!
8/14/99 - Found out today that I am listed in the Open Directory Project by Netscape! Here is a link to their bridge directory.
7/25/99 - You may now add to the guestbook!
7/23/99 - The guestbook is working! Please don't add to it yet...I have a bunch of test entries, and I need to (manually!) convert the old guestbook to the new format. It should be done in a few days (when I get home!)
6/16/99 - I'm adding a new guestbook now that I'm not at GeoCities...unfortunately, I'm running into problems, so don't try to sign it yet. Thanks for your patience!
6/16/99 - I found out today that my page has been featured as a Cool Site on Yahoo! Much thanks to Yahoo! and my loyal visitors! The Yahoo! Bridge page can be found here.

Bridge quote:
"What distinguishes bridge from the many other games combining luck and skill? Part of the answer is teamwork. An apt comparison is with basketball. There, players may engage in contests of skill limited in dimension: three-point shooting, slam-dunking, one-on-one, HORSE, and so on. But what makes basketball distinctive, and the most fun to play or watch, are the team interactions: moving without the ball, setting screens and passing on offense; switching and boxing out on defense; using court sense and maintaining court balance. So it is with bridge. There will be opportunities for three-point shots and slam dunks, but complete bridge players are also forever helping their partners and receiving information in return. Playing good bridge is like throwing an outlet pass, running downcourt, getting open, and receiving the ball back in perfect position to score. Other games are just plain HORSE."

There is a book of bridge quotes called Classic Bridge Quotes by Jared Johnson that I think all of these are taken from.
