I have been playing bridge socially once a week with a group of friends for about 7 years now. I attended Ami bridge in Langhorne sporadically over the last few years. It took quite a long time to reach the 20 point level. Whenever I played competitive Bridge with my partner we rarely ever got points.
I did play in the national tournament in Philadelphia two years ago and managed to get about 5 points. We have been playing online with Ami bridge for about six months now and slowly but surely I have accumulated 20 points. It takes getting .22 points or .40 points over a long time, but it paid off.
I have already gotten 1.3 points this week alone, so hopefully it won’t take so long to get another 20 points.
