INDIVIDUAL BRIDGE PLAYER PAGES

What is the purpose of a personal web page? You might dissect your favourite conventions, tell stories, discuss your most interesting hands, or sometimes best of all, list your favourite web links.

The personal web page could also: give our bridge writers a chance to ‘publish’ articles, or advertise their books/magazines; give our bridge directors the opportunity to discuss their craft; and give our bridge professionals the chance to introduce themselves and their services.

Not all personal web sites submitted are listed here. Sites must have reasonable bridge content to be included on a Great Bridge Links list.
