Bridge Table Chronicles is unique–a blog/ezine ABOUT “playing” bridge not HOW to play bridge. BTC (for short) is about the story of bridge–its pop culture, history, future. But BTC also has a “cause”–to make the case for what I believe the bridge establishment needs to do if playing bridge is to become the pop culture phenomenon it has been in the past. The answer, I believe, is to emulate what Ely Culbertson did back in the 20s–create and promote bridge to sociable bridge players, not just to serious/competitive duplicate players. That segment of players can only ever be a self-selected elite group within a potentially much larger mass of sociable players.
BTC is intended for all who play bridge whether sociably or seriously, who love this game and want the boomer generation and its children to keep bridge alive, thriving, and in Retro–part of America’s popular culture. Read it just for fun OR become a Bridge Booster yourself and join my cause. Bridge needs boosters from both the serious and sociable worlds of bridge players. The 1st, 2d and 3d “hands” of 39 blogs are now actively archived (can make comments indefinitely). The 4th will be published in next few weeks, as published–52 in all like a bridge deck.
