Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
Marshall Miles
At Bridge Week in the summer of 1976, I played with Marshall in a knockout team championship that consumed seven sessions. Except for Eddie Kantar and me, Marshall had very bad judgment about suitable partners as well as suitable bidding systems. The last time we had played at Bridge Week ...
1!H - 2!S to Show Spades and a Minor
Remember the old Miller Lite commercials on television? Some handsome young people are partying and drinking beer with the TV on. "Let's watch baseball!" says one, turning the channel. "No, let's watch sport fishing," says another, turning the channel again. Then a young woman beautiful enough to die ...
Confession Is Good For The Goal
I learned Acol back in the early 1960s, partly under some influence by Paul Heitner, and of course I idolize S.J. Simon. In the version I learned, 1NT openings were 12-14 HCP regardless of vulnerability. I've seldom played Acol, but when someone from England visits a bridge club ...
Confession Is Good For The Goal
YES to both of Richard Fleet's ad-hominem questions. Details available on request.
Mystery of Barry Crane
There was no confession.
Mystery of Barry Crane
Ed Hiatt had no motive for killing Barry, nor did he remember killing anyone. What if he'd just been a hitchhiker that Barry picked up? What if he'd just stolen Barry's car after somebody else killed Barry? What if after killing Barry, the assassin had seen a ...
Arrest made in Barry Crane Murder Case
From what I've read, the evidence links Hiatt only to Crane's stolen car, not to the murder, of which Hiatt has no recollection and for which Hiatt had no motive. Case definitely not closed.
Anders Wirgren has passed away
I never met Anders, but I corresponded with him via email. I considered Anders the best analyst of card play in the world. I am struggling to suppress my tears upon learning of his death.
Symmetric Two-Bids (clubs and diamonds both strong and artificial)
See Tri-Color Two Diamonds (December 1998 Bridge World) for a simpler way to combine 2C and 2D for use as powerhouse openings. Eventually I dropped 2D-2H; 2S as a prelude to showing strong 4441 hands to facilitate 2D-2S as an artificial positive response. Once at a national tournament my partner ...
Best Defenses against Strong One Club opening bids
Different strokes for different folks. For everyone: (concurring with Kit Woolsey) be willing to preempt to the hilt, getting your suits in before the opponents can show theirs. For experts with good memories: work out your own ideas and play what you think is optimal. My own idea was already ...
