Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How to continue?
I am going to play East for one spade honor mixed in with his clubs to explain his double. But I'm not sure that helps me much. I'd have stayed in dummy and led the spade at trick 2 hoping to lose to West because East still may ...
Carding Dilemma

Is this a way to run an organization?
Bemoaning the fact that many players don't want to play up is futile. We have allowed a situation to develop in which this is normality. I think the reasons for this are many and complex, but one of them is certainly the culture that has developed around MasterPoints. As ...
