Bridge columns appear in newspapers and online. They usually describe a specific game and include details such as which cards a player holds, who opens the hand and how the bidding proceeds. The column may include a diagram that shows the cards held by the four players in the game. The columnist proceeds to explain options for play and identify potential mistakes a player might make during this particular hand.

Sharif ranked in the top 50 contract bridge players in the world and for a while co-authored a bridge column for the Chicago Tribune.
