Bridge is not good if you have trouble with regret. I'm still irritated I went for an overtrick on a 6D contract last night for no reason and of course lost, then I guess I must have been flustered, so I played high cards early in a 3NT contract and went down several tricks. Luckily my partner and I were the only ones getting dealt any points. But it's definitely a great game if you like annoying tactical issues and bizarre coded negotiation.
edit: If you're quick at picking up bridge, you'll do just fine as a lawyer I'd have to imagine.
Yeah... I said card games, not Bridge.
I know Bridge is crazy complicated and full of nuances. But I would still love to learn...
Maybe we can find a fourth TLS. We'll see what whatthojeeves says about his skill level - mine's... low, at best. I know bidding conventions like Blackwood and Stayman, but beyond basic stuff like that I'm pretty lost. And as I said above, my groundplay sucks. But it's a lot of fun. Not much reason to play anything either than bridge or poker, that I've seen.
