Last week we talked about the King of Bridge in an article from the ACBL magazine;
In the same pages Travis Kui, 10 years old, from Brooklyn, New York, relates how he got started playing the game at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. He started out not liking the game only to discover the different strategies to the game. He went on to attend Bridge Whiz program, took classes, was invited to play in tournaments and ended his article by saying, “Playing and learning how to play duplicate bridge has helped me grow smarter, and more social, changing my life.”
Out of the mouths of babes.
