Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Do bridgeplayers LIKE conventions?
For those wondering what quiche has to do with anything, see here: http://web.mit.edu/humor/Computers/real.programmers If you aren't in the industry you won't get some of the jokes, though.
Get the Promotion
Here is what the charts say. Carding rules are the same in all 4 charts. IMO the last sentence directly addresses Kit's methods, and prohibits them.

Do You Count Your Cards?
It was effective enough to be banned by the ACBL.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
