Duplicate Bridge, going to the dogs . . .

Manik is Bill's ‘Bridge Club Live' alter-ego.

I have always had the desire to learn how to play Bridge and practiced a common form of the game on my computer with computerized players. No humans, just me and the robots in the program.

I thought I had been doing great.
Then a few weeks ago a notice was posted in our building announcing the formation of a group of players to play Duplicate Bridge on Monday evenings.
