Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Showing the Ten of Spades
The auction is suggestive both then and now. Even if the then-partner wasn't an enthusiastic 3rd seat opener, everyone has light hands with long that they would open in 3rd. Partner could potentially have his actual hand even today, but he's substantially more likely to have a ...
Showing the Ten of Spades

Brexit Question
Will England be eligible to play in the European Championships? Will Scotland seek independence (again) just to keep its place in the European Championships?
Phil Ivey loses his appeal
David, your Clever Croupier is quite similar to my Super Shuffler. They both have the option of cheating or not. The broad principle, at least to me, is that whether you're the casino or the player, if you secretly (unobservably, in a way that the other party has no ...
