Pat, be careful what conclusions you make, though. On a percentage basis, women's entry into traditionally male specialties has outstripped, say, obstetrics and pediatrics, by a wide margin. My father was a physician, and befriended several most of the women in his medical class at Northwestern. Many were prevented from entering traditionally male specialties.

The same pattern can be found in stats for lawyers.

Pat, Check out page 17 of this link: https://www.aamc.org/download/313228/data/2012physicianspecialtydatabook.pdf These breakdowns were as of 2010, and includes physicialns 60 years older than current medical students. The breakdown of medical students in 2015 would be radically different. For example, practicing neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons are overwhelmingly male<10%, but nearly half of them are 55+ years old.

“John said: How would you know the BW players?”

That's why I added “or at least posters on BW.”

I notice that no BW users (or at least posters on BW) ever seem to be net losers at BBO tournaments. But some folks must not be scratching on these BBO ACBL.

I'm hooked on robot rewards games. No, they are not exactly like duplicate games, but resemble tournament play more than the club games I play in NYC.

I look at not only the large crowd in the video, but all the space between tables, and salivate. Congratulations on your success. By “Inter-Club,” is this literally a competition between different bridge clubs in one region, between folks from different areas, or ??? What have you done to build the tournament to such a big event?

A special shoutout to Al Hollander, who tries his best to learn the systems of the players in every match in which he comments. I appreciate his hard work and dedication.

That would be my #1 request, Steve. On some pages, using my browsers clicking on the back or left-arrow brings me back to where I left off (usually using Chrome on a MacBook Pro.

Michael, Congratulations on great work. The demonstration is clear enough that I think with a little help, non-bridge players could understand exactly what is going on. I don't think the popularity of the video(s) is hard to comprehend: you've synthesized tens of thousands of words into minutes of indelible images.

Obfuscation can be fun! This interviewee is a master, almost as good as Dayton Allen posing as a surgeon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pG-fGZEsqvk (the intro and laughter are unmistakably Steve Allen's).

I assume this has to do with the need for more cameras and the constant movement of players, but this is a very good question.

The roundtable was enjoyable, and I'd like more of it, but the highlight has to be Brad Moss's laughter, the most contagious since Jim Backus and friends: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFqZhadwvG0

And Wyoming and Vermont would experience a sudden population bulge.

Marty, you are the ultimate non-directive psychologist. Ask a bunch of great questions and then force us to do all the work. Carl Rogers would be proud.

I understand your reasoning but I'm afraid partner will interpret 3H as constructive and showing Hx in hearts. Once your rebid promises the minor-suit raise, how can partner read it?

JoAnna, That was reportedly Reese's rationalization.
