This site began in 1999 and has slowly grown into a large set of descriptions of Bidding conventions, as well as pages about famous bridge players like Warren Buffett and personal bridge Articles.

Future plans include system descriptions in the bidding section, and an expansion of the bridge links. Additionally, the Articles page will include external links to articles by prominent bridge writers. All in a day's work!
