Here are some great bridge links….

Want to create a convention card?

Conventional Wisdom (great articles on what each part of the convention card means, and how to fill it out)

Bridge Winners (permits partners to complete a convention card on-line interactively) or download a convention card editor

ACBL Helpful Documents (a treasure trove of information, including sample convention cards. But much, much more, and very worth exploring!)

Want to practice your bidding or declarer play?

You can practice with robots at Just Play Bridge. (Courtesy of ACBL and Bridge Base Online. The robots play a basic 2/1 system with 5 card majors and strong no trumps. Although they are sometimes quirky, you will still sharpen your bidding technique playing with them. The best part is that you can hover over a bid to get an explanation.)

Other programs that ACBL has made available include “Mini-Bridge”, “Just Declare” (to practice your declarer play), and Bridgemaster (the best program of all for becoming an expert declarer – careful, this one is addicting!). All of these are available here.

Bridge with Larry Cohen

One of the best of all of the on-line bridge resources.  In particular, check out:

– the Learning Center (tons of good “how to” bridge information and advice.  Use the articles under LC Standard for help you complete your convention card), and

– see how you are doing by trying out Larry’s Quizzes, or practice bidding.
