FYS 129: Poker is for Chumps: Learn the Game of Bridge

While Texas Hold 'Em is a hugely popular card game, it's basically a lame exercise in card strategy played by chumps who wear sunglasses indoors. In contrast, bridge is a fascinating and complex game that is superior to Texas Hold 'Em in every respect. Learn to play the game that was a major form of recreation in the days before the Wii and X-Box, and be transported to the enchanting world of duplicate and tournament bridge. No experience is necessary -- just a love of competition and strategy.
