What qualifies a hand as a "good 14"?
What qualifies a hand as a "good 14"?
Every expert player interested in hand evaluation should read Thomas Andrews's double-dummy hand evaluation research. Here is a summary of his conclusions about NT valuation: 1. the 4-3-2-1 point count is far more accurate for NT valuation than it is for suit valuation ...

Polygraphs are pseudo-scientific clap trap. There is a good reason they were debunked on a TV show titled "Bullshit!"
Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: QJTx J9xx x AJ92

K.Jassem's voice in Balicki-Żmudzinski case
Jakub: Josh Donn is far closer in ability to B and Z and than he is to you or me--he is a legitimate expert player. You could replace any player on USA 2 with Josh and the difference in result would be negligible. So please stop with the personal attacks ...
