And then I got seduced by the vulnerability…the old expression about a bird in hand being better than two in the bush comes to mind :(

Your analysis away from the table and in this article belies the skill level which you ascribe to yourself! I'm really enjoying the audiobook The Art of Learning, which talks about the difference between a mastery and entity learning framework. As someone that is also aspirational in my bridge playing, I am finding a lot of comfort in seeing what a disservice I'm doing to myself with my entity orientations.

Excellent article, keep enjoying the process!

Hey Dennis,

If you had to choose between playing with Christina for a tournament or sharing a room with Simon, the snorer, Hult, which would you choose?

Lead a heart only because it was presented as a problem.

Note: the first ever hand that I played with Peter Fredin, the partner on this board, I made a Lightner double and he found it instantly. Ever better, Kevin Bathurst sent it back! Running we were not :) -1

Congratulations to my new friend Dunga and the rest of the team. It would be easier for me to be happy for Jack Zhao if he ever gave me that $1 he owes me!

Not sure I can beat 3 spades so I bid 4 hearts as a two way shot.

I was in the hallway when you all compared scores after the fourth quarter. There was a great cheer when you realized that you had won. Congratulations and thanks for sharing!

It turns out that a lot of those redoubled contracts played by Anam have been played against bots, so that needs to be taken with a little bit of a grain of salt! She's up to 17 at last check…

Also, Richard Pavlicek's website http://www.rpbridge.net/9ya1.htm has some interesting facts in this department. I found the Average IMPs per board with player on lead, I/bol. Thanks to Roger Lee for pointing this out to me, twice :)

The screenings went really well. It was great to watch them with a room full of bridge players who can really appreciate the little bits, particularly the relationship between Adam and Zach Grossack.
