For bridge players, one of the miracles of the last 15 years or so must be online bridge. Not only can you play bridge online, you can practice your bidding, set up team matches, see what everyone else who played the same hand bid, lead, defended and so forth.
As if that weren't enough - there is Vugraph. Bridge Base Online highlights significant events in the U.S. - and just about every other venue you can imagine. Most recently, bridge buffs were treated to days of elite bridge competition in Brazil, where the 2009 World Championships were held.
One of those taking in all the action was Mike Cassel. Mike has kindly written up an article about the action he witnessed. Thanks, Mike - and be sure to take advantage of this "miracle for bridge" players yourself. You really are "there"!
