David Goldfarb's bidding problem: K964 AJ85 KT75 T

I don't think that makes any real difference to the play of [i]this[/i] hand, but it's an excellent point.
Bridge vs Magic
I'm going to guess...that the players use their pre-constructed decks of cards to play a game of Magic: the Gathering against each other. It's possible to play Magic with more than two players at a time, but it's really designed to be a 1 vs. 1 ...
