Not sure why that phrase needs censoring. Is it against the BW rules?

We were using a bid of NT as take out. Down 4.

Good article. Keep on writing more articles on false carding, please. Hopefully, I would eventually be able to do these plays in my game.

Indeed, there is no way to argue with my tastes.



This is a digression, but what do you mean as more and more people are introduced to the game via sites like BBO?


I've always introduced people locally, and I always use the traditional deck of cards.

There is no need to care much if I was the only one who thinks this way. I don't have any statistics on this, but there are probably many players who feel the same way as I do, and surely you care if this migration results in large losses of players.

Peter:

I agree with your points about the benefits of playing with tablets.


I can't say for others, but personally, online bridge and not physically playing with cards kills the excitement and enjoyment of the game. 5-6 hands feel like 4-3-3-3 hands. 18 pointers are a mundane 11 point hand. I don't feel as inclined to figure out what I did wrong. There is just some sort of ethereal vibe that comes with tabling a card, sorting your hand, and feeling the cards.

“I know of many players, even young ones, who dislike the idea of playing without cards.”

I, for one, am one of the young players who strongly dislike the idea of playing without cards.

I feel like the “other” options are a bit unnecessary given the stipulated conditions.

I personally think that the options for board 2 and board 10 and useless, as it doesn't really add a significant twist that can't be easily overcome.

However, I do approve of the other options and hopefully I can gather some of my friends (what friends?) to play some of these variations.

“I also threw in a few facts, even knowing that this might not be in fashion these days.”

I had a good laugh at this. Quite an enjoyable article to read during class time

Conventions are essential to the enjoyment of the game for me. They are undeniably necessary in many cases to get to the right strain and level, and getting to the right strain and level is what makes bridge fun and non-depressing (for me at least).

I did notice that flaw. That's why I specified:

“while playing perfect defense to make it the most difficult or TRICKY for yourself from reaching that trick goal.”

What about a stiff diamond? I haven't been able to preclude that possibility.
