KBA: Reflections on Learning to Play Bridge
One may ask why forum like BW is important, while many "simple" bridge players do not need sophisticated analyzes. The point is that without searching optimality bridge would be a primitive game, which is totally "dominated" by computer solutions. The only practical reason is that optimal solution can be find ...
KBA: Reflections on Learning to Play Bridge

Goulash problem
Good question! 1. In goulash you normally have unbalanced hands, so hands without 5-cards longer nearly do not exist. 2. In case you have a balanced holding (including 4-4-4-1) you should (or have possibility to) bid 1NT with 13 HCPs. 3. Such "strange" agreements (there are still some more…) are ...
