I like thoughtful comments and apolitical analysis.

Favorite Bridge Memory
Walking into the local club at the tender age of 31 (1980) armed with 16-18 and Blackwood that I had gotten out of a book. In a few months I got to play with a decent standby and we won. The next week we won again. And then ..."What is this club bid you call Stayman and I'm worried about my clubs?". And we didn't win.
Winning 2 events at an old sectional when they only had 4. I had 200 masterpoints. My team won the thu bam and my partner and I won the sat open paris. There were no strats or flights.
I can understand aggression toward being thrown into something unprepared.
And my unvoiced opinion of people that are doing something like this.
Maybe this can be remedied for their next opponents, after all it seems unfair not to have given the defenders a chance to get on the same page ...
This hand just being 1 example.
East can't get out of his hand with a dia if he doesn't have any more.
I think the probability of this or something similar happening with significance is greater than the probability of getting 11 tricks by taking the first dia ...
