Earning your Average in Platinum Pairs
Was the 4 discard a mistake? If you lead K now, can't they just win and return a heart? With the play as given it seems better to play West for the ace of hearts and East for Jx or Tx. Run the spade winners pitching diamonds from dummy ...
A Hand from the USBF Mixed Teams QF
"Partner, looking at Qxx in trumps, should always ask for another heart." Wouldn't that tip declarer off about the Q?
Mobile Bridge Problems App Design
The lichess app is worth a look (and open source).
In the Well: Eddie Wold
Hi Eddie, thanks for being in the well! I remember reading in connection with the Rosencranz kidnapping that you knew the kidnapper pretty well. Is that right? Did he ever do anything to make you think he was capable of a serious crime? And why do you think he did ...

Get the Count
"It probably won't matter which heart you lead. But in general it is right to signal honestly using the enemy methods." Kit (or anyone else), I understand this rule of thumb for attitude or suit preference, but why does it apply to a count situation?
How do BW members feel about publishing anonymous letters from senders self-identified as ACBL employees.
Josh, "The second option is kind of silly. You may or may not care whether it was signed, but how could you possibly not care if it's accurate?" I'm not certain of the intent of the poll but I think it's about the requirements for publication on ...
