There are three kinds of bridge players: (1) Those who can count, and (2) those who can't.

We had a 75-percent game last night! Three out of four opponents thought we were idiots.

I always accept a lead out of turn on the theory that if they don't know who's lead it is, they won't know what to lead.

We had a partnership misunderstanding. My partner assumed I knew what I was doing.

Nice hand. Plenty of exit cards.

Bridge players exist mainly to make life difficult for each other. - Omar Sharif

England have lost to Pakistan and Sri Lanka. NZ should beat them comfortably if our openers find some form.

1S - 3S - 4NT (straight Blackwood)
RHO now bids 5H.
You bid 5C, insufficient.

I'm taking lessons tomorrow on Stayman and Transfers. I initially did Powerpoints to give me a lesson plan, examples etc. Then I decided to just chuck the powerpoint and do it all on a whiteboard and tabletop, minimal handouts. Powerpoint is not teaching.

Some Powerpoints :
