Gianarrigo Rona re-elected WBF President
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy? We call it "Riding The Gravy Train".
Raises to five of the agreed major suit?
This must be right. I've had a few occasions recently where this has come up, and more than once I've had partner woodenly bid or decline a slam based purely on trump honours or the number of losers they hold in the opponents' bid suit. 5M in my ...

EBU Spring Congress, Stratford-Upon-Avon
I accept that the treatment advocated by David and Tom is superior, whereby an immediate 5H is stronger than going via 4NT, because it caters better for the situation when the opponent intervenes again with 5S. Obviously one would need a specific arrangement for this. I'm not sure that ...
EBU Spring Congress, Stratford-Upon-Avon
As per your suggestion Ian, here's a bidding problem from the A Final You are playing 2/1 and have agreed a generally very sound/conservative style of bidding. Both sides are non-vulnerable. Your opponents are the eventual winners of the event, David Gold and Kevin Castner. Gold is ...
