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. If it doesn’t appear at all, go to and search “Duplicate Bridge” plus the current Saturday date.
Sometimes the online version does not materialize on the Buffalo News website, at least not in a timely fashion. When that happens, like it did a couple times recently, you can find it as an appendix to Dale Anderson’s bridge blog at
The online version contains unabridged scores and a longer list of notices. Deadline for submission of scores and notices is Tuesday night.
Email or Office phone is (716) 849-4420.

A Silver Life Master since 2011 and a Ruby Life Master since the ACBL created that new master point rank at the beginning of 2016, Dale Anderson blogs about his progress toward Gold Life Master (2,500 points) and other bridge adventures here.
