Above: I don't know what the attendance has been, but the crowds are good-sized. I'd guess we are on target for the pre-tournament estimates, maybe around 10,000 tables where a table is defined as four people playing one session of bridge.

Above: Bridge Winners has a flat panel (in the second floor pre-function area) that displays running total from the Vanderbilt KO Team Game.

Above: The VuGraph lets players kibitz the Vanderbilt. Players can also watch online at Bridge Base Online.

Above: Some monkey business: After a tough session of bridge, you have to eat, right? Kate and I went to the Blue Monkey for sustenance. The weather is nice and some people are eating outside.

Photos taken with my point-and-shoot.


  1. Looked at the pictures.

    Something didn't click.

    Looked again with puzzled expression.

    Finally figure it out...

    These days, when I see a leader board for cards, I expect to see the name D SMITH prominently displayed.

    Its just not right.

  2. That's a lot of people trying to "bridge" the gap...I think I'd like the Blue Monkey, although I've never seen one. I'll bet the technology helps at an event like this.
