Favorite Bridge Memory
The first night of rubber bridge with my parents and grandparents where I finally got to play a few hands.
Bridge Accomplishments

The Setting Trick Episode 16: Steve Weinstein
Thanks, John! Already burned through this and eager for the next.

Fantoni live on BBO
I was with you right up to the naming/shaming part. As others have said, BBO provides a tool and platform as a service to the bridge community (and, of course, to turn a profit). If they were to get into the business of policing international bridge - a kind of ...
Online NABC - Congrats to Phil Clayton
Well done, Phil! Congratulations!
A better rating system
I don't like the 'best 25 consecutive' rating thing... but it's fine to tag someone's record with the peak rating they've ever achieved as a vanity/congratulatory thing. Calculate their 'current' rating based on their most recent N results and timebox it to discard ancient history ...
