Holiday Gifts

The holidays are coming up and I have been asked what gifts I would reccomend for the bridge player.


If you have used Pat Harrington’s CDs and are looking for more CDs to help learn bridge I would suggest Bridge Master 2000, the Audrey Grant edition. This is similiar to Pat Harrington’s CDs and is suited for the beginner.

For more advanced players who want to learn conventions I would reccomend the Learn and Practice Bidding Conventions, basic conventions.

For other suggestions I would reccomend any software by Mike Lawrence or Larry Cohen. You can see a wide variety of their programs at


For advanced beginners looking to improve their judgement, I like Bridge with Bells and Whistles. This book will improve your bidding.

For advanced students looking for conventions I like 25 Bridge Conventions You Should Know by Barbara Seagram.


There are rumors of a 3 day bridge seminar scheduled in Georgia for the end of January. As soon as details are finalized I will report them here.
