Is Bridge World magazine in trouble?
The Bridge World magazine has long been THE magazine for serious bridge players. There are other magazines such as the Bridge Bulletin published by the ACBL. It has to be all things to a wide variety of players, so is not nearly as valuable for expert and near-expert players.
I've subscribed to the Bridge World since back in the Seventies, so it was disturbing to get the letter shown above. Yes, I paid a big fee to get a life-time subscription. Now they write and say they are in serious trouble and come right out and ask me to forego the LT subscription and agree to pay on a yearly basis. Folks, if they are in financial trouble, I'm truly sorry. But sending more money to bail them out is not ever going to happen.
Have any of you bridge players received the same letter? What are your thoughts?
