What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?

What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
I strongly agree that there be some method to determine total team time taken . There would be a number of issues to resolve. For example I am in 6NT with 12 top tricks, no chance for a 13th. I run my long suit causing my opponents to take up time ...

Trying it on ?
Takeout is standard . The management is not and should be alerted
Why am I not that crazy about Bridge anymore these days?
David , not to worry “ A moment to learn . A lifetime to master “ truly describes bridge . Hamman once told me “ the best of us are bad , the rest are hopeless “ Bridge will always be compelling , we can rest assured of that .
BOD Restructure Vote
