Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
No more sit outs at our bridge club!
Not even as long ago as "a couple of months back" -- the article is in the July 2017 Bulletin, page 32 ("Eliminate Half Tables From Your Games").
Bumper Movement Foul-up
Can Bridgemates be programmed to somehow highlight an unusual round movement? This could include a skip, bumper pair arriving, sitout, or other special actions (arrow-switch?). I'd like to see something that would make it harder for N/S to quickly "OK" past that screen without reading it and assume ...
Dear Mr. Club Director:
That does sound unusual, but I think the distinction I was trying to make is still valid -- is the director doing this before (or early during) the game to try to balance out the strats, or is this being done after (or late during) the game to control how many ...
Dear Mr. Club Director:
There's a difference between adjusting the breakpoints at the start of the game (to have roughly one third of the field in each strat) and adjusting them at the end of the game (to maximize the number of pairs earning points), and it's not clear which your club ...

Singleton King offside.
Compacting the Dummy
I (when not quite a Life Master yet) set a nationally-known expert down 9 at 3NT -- not doubled, because I could tell he would run to 4 of a minor. His bid worked, in that we were cold for 6, but I doubt that my pickup partner and I ...
The hot bridge gift of 1932 - just $25 - do you have one in the attic?
One of these showed up in the TV show "Storage Wars" (which features auctions of unpaid storage units), episode "Tanks for the Memories" (17 Aug 2011). The table was valued at $2000.
Gary Ansok's bidding problem: xxx Qxx Kxxxx Ax
Partner had AQxx x AQJx KQJx. RHO had the A, so 3NT would be down off the top. With diamonds splitting 2-2, 12 tricks in diamonds were easy.
