The Duplicate Bridge column is compiled weekly by News Staff Reporter Dale Anderson. The print version normally appears in the Life & Arts section in the Saturday edition of The Buffalo News. If it’s not in its usual place, try the Sports section.
The online version contains unabridged scores and a longer list of notices. Deadline for submission of scores and notices is Tuesday night.
Sometimes the online version does not materialize on the Buffalo News website. When that happens, you can find it as an appendix to Dale Anderson’s bridge blog at http://newsdupli.blogspot.com/

A Silver Life Master since 2011, Dale Anderson reached a career total of 1,900 master points last month. He blogs about his progress toward Gold Life Master (2,500 points) and other bridge adventures here.
