NY Times to Terminate Bridge Column
Will the column appear in the NYT online edition?
Why (and make sense?) ban conventions or systems from bridge?
By way of background, I have 5,000 master points, and my wife and I travel to about 6 regionals and one nationals a year. We play up when we can, including the Spingold and Vanderbilt, and once (when we qualified) in the Platinum Pairs. Along the way, we encounter ...
