Radu and Max have been a breath of fresh air in New York. Many congrats, and a big shout-out to Alex and Igor, too.

Have you been to Hubu Alley, Adam?

John, You ask for advice, but it is we who should be learning from you.

Try Lamaii, run by the Atchawaran brothers and their significant others. It’s on Spring Mountain and best of all, open until 3:00 am. Every day. Great wine and beer program at fair prices.

I did not know Mr. Roswnkranz personally, but I loved playing against him. He was always gentle and humble and delighted to talk about his bidding theories. He was a giant.

Don’t forget to eat Hainan chicken, arguably the most popular dish in Asia.

Something like that.

Alex is so nice that when he declared hands in the tourney, he thanked his robot partner for the nice dummies. I’ll keep telling this joke as long as Alex keeps winning or someone laughs at it.

Well then, many thanks to Polly, too. I miss your articles about your bridge adventures, Polly.

Jan, you shouldn't have to do these updates yourself, but I'm so thankful that you do.

And on this very post, the apostrophe helps distinguish between a bid of two spades and the plural of the number two.

I met most of my African-American friends in college through playing bid whist. I remember a lot of trash talking and a minimum of ethics. And lots of laughs.

“I could care less” has almost always been used ironically – the evidence is overwhelming. Here's one of ten columns about the subject I could cite: https://www.grammarphobia.com/blog/2012/12/more-about-caring-less.html

Totally with you on your second paragraph, Larry. As to the first, I’m not sure how to conduct a meaningful poll. Maybe users should be thanking commentators more often.

Larry, I think you have it almost exactly wrong! The quality of the commentators is, along with the quality of the players and the interest of their methods, the most important factor in my staying at a table. I only hop around if the commentary is weak (or nonexistent) or at the end of a big event if the score is close. Of the 7 or 8 of the very best commentators, you and Debbie Rosenberg are the ones I’d most like to do more Vu-Graphs. You both have the knack of analyzing hands single dummy, and are particularly good at teaching. Given the complicated systems so many pairs employ, it’s a real gift to explain what the players are thinking about to intermediate and advancing players. I think you greatly underestimate how much your contributions are enjoyed and appreciated.

Alfred Sheinwold’s ex-wife, Patricia, told me the same story. I don’t remember her mentioning any columnists across the pond, but definitely singled out Becker, Karin, and “Goren.” Bridge hands are not copyright protected, but the copy accompanying them certainly are. As someone who has had everything from sentences to entire books’ contents reprinted verbatim without permission or attribution, I consider plagiarism an act of So should Mark Horton.

You won’t find a more popular player in the Mid-Atlantic area. Alex is such a great partner that when declaring, he thanks his robot partner for the dummy..

I watched you a lot, Max, and you acquitted yourself very well. Yes, you had a few bad mistakes, but you were competitive against fine players, and you were never pushed around. The blunders will lessen as you gain experience. It is much harder, and rarer, for a player of your experience to have such a great spirit and enjoy the process so much while you continue to improve. Congratulations!

I wouldn't be interested in playing rubber bridge at the Nationals, but totally support trying it out as an experiment.
