Legal Aid Requested
I tried overcalling on xxx AKQ xxx xxxx when I was younger. Partner raised to 2H, and thought for a while when the bidding came back to her. I thought "If I escape alive I will sacrifice a goat and a ram to the gods of bridge". Eventually she passed ...
The Best Bridge Writer
I can't find my copy of Design for Bidding, but what I remember is his discussion of Acol two bids versus weak twos. First, weak twos were practically unknown outside of the US, so he did well just to mention them. And secondly, he invented Acol two bids. IIRC ...
Story inspired by Craig Z's poll

Ethics of Taking Advantage of Hitches
If you're certain that West has honor-doubleton, how can it ever be right to play a low H from hand? You run the risk of a smooth duck, do you not?
Another ruling case
I had a partnership where we played four different defenses - strong direct, strong weak, balancing direct, and balancing weak. If there'd been space on the convention card for a fifth defense, I'm sure we would have played it. That lasted until I forgot one of the defenses, and ...
