2019-04-06 Vasa Bridgeklubb - an interview with Clas Nyberg in Vaasan Ikkuna 3.4

A summary in English:

Started playing at he age of 18. Now 26 years later he has won 30 pcs Finnish championship titles. Last medal is from March, when he plated with Kauko Koistinen and the one before that is from the team championships, 3 months earlier. The team consisting of 6 players, has dominated the Finnish team bridge, The team has won all the team championships since 2010.

Clas has always been interested in playing cards, but left all other cards games behind when he was introduced to Bridge.

Ability to reason - Patience is important, because it takes some time to learn. Bridge is a partner game, where it is important to understand your partner and also the opposite pair of players. How did Nyberg reach the top? With diligent practicing.

Always something new - What makes Bridge so interesting is that you always learn something new. There is almost no luck involved in Bridge. You can win even with bad cards, because the other players are also being dealt te same cards. Another interesting point is the age has no difference as, 15 - 85 years of age is just fine. The social factor is also important. Nyberg has met new people when he has travelled. Playing events are held almost ever weekend somewhere in Finland and also abroad. Nyberg has represented Finland in 14 international events. Nowadays I play maybe 3 weekends in a 2 months period. Next big event will be the Nordic championships in Norway in June.

New hobby players - Vaasa can offer good possibilities to play. We play every week and we also arrange course for beginners annually. Our club has a bit less than 100 players and is thereby maybe the 3rd or 4th largest club in Finland. Bridge would like to see more younger players pick up this hobby, but it is difficult because there are some many different hobbies to choose from nowadays.
