Why am I not that crazy about Bridge anymore these days?
And you, a man, are assuming that a woman plays by feelings? Please come and play some money bridge against me.
Why am I not that crazy about Bridge anymore these days?
All of the above until I found online bridge. Now I'm crazy about bridge once again. :)
Does this cuebid create a game force?
I thought that double followed by bidding the suit you doubled promised 20+ points.
Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?
@Bob Okker ... and if your partner has 4 spades, he'll still bid 2 and you'll miss your spade fit. Silliness.
Are Reverses “Off” in a 2/1 auction?

Your opinion about a very weak preempt
I would open 2D if I could and Pass if I couldn't. I try never to lie to partner about my suit length in a preempt -- it makes it too difficult for partner to know when to compete.
