Bridge, anyone? South County Bridge serves Gilroy, Hollister and Morgan Hill

I still remember the first time I ever played bridge. A college chum needed a fourth person to play. I told him I didn’t know how to bid, but he replied, “Just look at your cards, and bid what you see.” On the first hand, remembering what he said, I bid “four clubs.” The bidding went, “Double, pass, pass” – my turn to bid again. Staring at my cards, I cautiously bid “four diamonds.” Again, the bidding went, “Double, pass, pass.” This was getting easier, so I bid “four hearts.” You guessed it: “Double, pass, pass.” So I gleefully added, “And, I have the queen of spades!” Because that’s exactly what I held … Four clubs, four diamonds, four hearts AND the queen of spades. Fortunately, I’ve gotten a bit better.
