I've had a few readers ask what's the difference between poker and bridge. That's hard to answer, so instead let me direct you to a Barry Greenstein interview.
Most of you have seen him on TV and know he's a top poker player, but Greenstein's also a bridge player. He's a Bronze Life Master who is close to being a Silver Life Master. That means he has nearly 1,000 masterpoints (awards given to bridge players who win at either club games or tournaments).
When Greenstein was a graduate student at the University of Illinois, he was friends with expert bridge player, Karen Walker. She interviewed him in 2005, and he discussed some of the differences between poker and bridge. The interview was published in the ACBL's Bridge Bulletin (my favorite magazine, lol) in the Feb. 2006 issue.
You can read Walker's interview here.
Walker is a regular columnist for the Bridge Bulletin and editor of the ACBL District 8 quarterly newsletter called the District 8 Advocate newsletter. If you are a bridge player who is serious about improving his or her game, do yourself a favor and go to her excellent web site here.
