Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: QT8764 3 T85 732, case #9. Very similar auction, the 4 bidders claim that the hesitation before double 4 made 4 more attractive, not less :) Since the hesitation can make the pull more and less attractive at the same time, I suggest we dub ...
Debbie Rosenberg's bidding problem: QT8764 3 T85 732

Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
Court: I sentence you to 1 year and 8 months in prison. Odd: F*$#! Court: Ok, 9 months.
Is Anyone Else Confused?
"I'm positive one day a bridge-literate or better sponsor would assemble the top five world players and her(im)self, but what winning with such a team will prove? " That you still aren't able to beat the Blue Team if the Blue Team follows the Blue Team rule.
Very slow suit preference signals
Happened about 10 years go to me (I was on the "offending" side though) My partner was on lead against 4M in an auction where I had made an unusual NT overcall, and partner bid clubs. Partner lead the A and found KQx in dummy. I had to decide ...
You too can score 90%!
.. and then he again opens a singleton, Quartzy. I don't really understand how one can play with humans, they are so erratic and unpredictable. I wouldn't call that bridge, that's quasi-bridge at best.
Moysian game
