Club #85: Long Beach Bridge Club in Long Beach, CA

September 7

This was my first experience of a Regional (Irvine) tournament impacting a local bridge club’s game schedule. What is normally a 20-table game was down to 9 yesterday and 13 today. Good food is a daily occurrence here, but the specialty of the house is desserts. The club takes a break in the middle of the game and the house brings out all sorts of desserts – including ice cream! A very nice facility that is located on the second floor of the building; which is rare. Second floor locations bring lower rents because retailers have no interest in them. I played with Kevin Lane, a hi-tech guy that helped the ACBL in the past with his ideas. In addition, he is a very fine player who does not play every afternoon at a local club (this is a note for his wife), but we had a unlucky afternoon and finished in the upper 50s. If the chance ever occurs in the future, I would enjoy playing another game with him.
