Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Is this upgradeable?
Indeed. It's a pretty good game. Makes if there's only one heart loser (odds on) or if the clubs can be brought home for four tricks. Not today.
Is this upgradeable?
That's not clear at all. Depends on the placement of the opposing honours. It is easy to imagine that it's right to play the hand from this side even if partner has all four queens. I came back to this game in 2013 after a 20-year hiatus. The ...

Should this bid be reported to the director ?
I had the following auction bid against me recently by two good players. 1 - 1 3 - 3 4 - 6 What's this? Opener cuebid his own suit, apparently denying a club control and then responder blasts slam without even bothering to check for Key ...
