Showing the Ten of Spades
Does one example out of thousands really make anything "more suspicious."? I am going out to play Bridge this afternoon, If I get those two hands I will probably lead a spade on both occasions. But anything from a gut feeling to prolonged opposition thought before bidding could easily change ...
Showing the Seven of Spades
I'm just getting very perplexed about context here. I would dearly like to know just how old these hands are. At the minute, mostly what I see is a reminder of how differently we bid back in the day. Far from jumping to conclusions, I'm mostly curious about ...
Showing the Four of Spades
I am completely in awe of the work that must have gone into creating this. I wait each article with considerable interest. I have not yet seen anything that shocked me. Each article leaves me with considerably more questions than answers - but that is the way with any good story ...
The Difficulty of Playing Well Against Palookas

I have never conciously equated "non-ethical" or "a failure to be actively ethical" with cheating . When I read Don's comment,it makes sense to me why this debate produces such strong reactions. I have always seen these things more in the light of, "Thou shalt not kill; but needst ...
Active ethics: A Step too Far?
I understood that you were saying the Law has to read this way, I simply disagreed and gave my reasons. I doubt we will meet on this. However, I do take your point about the concept "Active Ethics" and I start to wonder if it does more harm than good ...
Active ethics: A Step too Far?
John, I don't know how often I have to say that I have no problem with the ethics of people who do not draw attention to the revoke. I will add for clarification, that I even can see the validity of the argument that it is actually a bad ...
