Some thoughts

I started a thread on BBO forums a month ago, asking people why do they play bridge. The responses I received have mainly strengthened my own beliefs.

So why do I play? Firstly, Bridge took over the place of chess in my life, which used to be the choice of intellectual entertainment. Bridge has the added advantage of a more social element, and a quicker pace of play. And why did bridge take over chess in my life? I was improving faster, and learning better bridge, whereas I was always struggling in chess.

So what are my aims? To improve continuously and become a better player and partner. Simple as that. So, I should never consider myself as the finished product.

And of course, most importantly, to have fun. What’s the joy of playing if one doesn’t have fun? I’ve experienced it that at certain times with chess. I do not wish for it to happen with bridge.
