What Bridge World readers say about the magazine
“ No player who is interested in stretching the limits of his understanding of bridge should be without The Bridge World . . . If you really want to learn and enjoy bridge and develop your mind, this is one of the greatest bargains available. You will learn just as you would from teaching lessons with a good pro, or from playing up and observing what is happening at the table. Developing the mind-set and thought patterns of the expert bridge player in yourself is a difficult, gradual, incremental process, not for the timid, impatient, or easily discouraged. It is well worth it...
It will stretch your mind, help you to see how the experts reason, provide fine commentary on the major matches in the world, introduce you to interesting new methods, and offer fodder for thought in improving the way the game is run.
I am in their debt as the recipient of a fine publication these many years. You certainly should try it. ”

It's especially helpful in declarer play—by seeing themes several times in the magazine, you can get them right the first time when playing the hand. The articles are well-written and entertaining. I eagerly await each new issue, giddy when I see it in my mailbox. And the quality has kept on and even improved; they have a new section which is great for improving players; I believe it's a worthwhile purchase for both the expert and the advancing player. ”

“ A variety of avenues are open to the student of bridge wishing to improve his game. Certainly, however, one of the least costly, most worthwhile and quite entertaining options is The Bridge World magazine. As a subscriber since the late '70s, I credit a large portion of my bridge growth to The Bridge World. The Master Solvers Club aided me in learning how to bid and in understanding expert judgment. Test Your Play helped lessen partner's fear when I was in charge of dummy. Reports about top-level competition and columns like You Be The Judge made me realize that experts can, and do, make errors. Now I can—and have—beaten the experts on occasion! Any serious competitor should not consider going without their monthly copy of The Bridge World. A treasure of a publication while in Edgar Kaplan's able hands, Jeff Rubens has admirably continued the tradition of excellence. My thanks to all at The Bridge World for every page! ”

“ The Bridge World has always been fantastic. For twenty years, I did not play bridge because of other obligations--wife, kids, dog, house, job, the usual story.

The Bridge World is a step above fantastic. Thank you for all of your efforts. ”
