Whats so COOL about Bridge?

Bridge is the most popular and exciting card game ever developed. It is played and enjoyed all over the world, because it is a game based primarily on skill and not luck. It is a mental game and has been shown to improve memory and concentration skills, as well as judgment and logic. Bridge is exciting, stimulating, challenging, sometimes frustrating; and above all, great fun. You can believe me on this.

If you take lessons or read books on the subject (or visit an amazingly cool web site), you will learn the strategies and the intricacies of the game, step by step. Initially, you may feel overwhelmed, but (again, trust me - have I ever lied to you?) keep at it and you will amaze yourself as your competence grows. Always logical, but not always intuitive; bridge is challenging even for experts. As your proficiency increases - and it will - you will experience a sense of great accomplishment that makes you feel good about yourself.

Bridge is a social game. You will meet wonderful people. (Along with maybe one or two not quite so wonderful.) People of all sizes, shapes, and backgrounds; people from all walks of life. Lifetime friendships are often built through bridge.

No matter their level of skill or age, serious students of the game never stop learning. Not only do bridge players enjoy playing locally, many like to travel to tournaments throughout the country. Bridge provides a social network wherever you go. It's like being in a world-wide club; wherever you travel you can find the opportunity to play the game.

All About BridgeClues

In 2002 Leonard Lidstrom followed his dream of creating a bridge site dedicated to teaching bridge in a question-answer format. Leonard asked Anne Lund to join the project in 2002 and then contacted Mike Lawrence. An agreement was reached that Mike would write 3000 articles assorted into bidding, play, and defense in the Bridge Clues question-answer format. Mike agreed and in 2003 Bridge Clues was ready to make its debut.

Bridge Clues inevitably receives 'suggestions' from readers. One suggestion that was implemented in 2005 was to create two levels of articles. Level One was limited to Standard American bidding and basic Blackwood. Level Two used a forcing 1NT and 1430 Key Card Blackwood. This revised format proved to be extremely popular.

Leonard passed away in 2016 having achieved his dream of providing a free teaching site for all levels of bridge enthusiasts. Anne now runs the site and Mike has remained in a supporting role. For the folks who want more than access to the four daily hands, a subscription to the previous four months of hands is available.
