John “one hand means nothing”. Totally disagree. In certain cases one action yet alone one hand is enough for me: Take this hand from a Bermuda Bowl over 50 years ago.... unnamed superstar passed after a very long think after hearing 3D-X-P-???? with xx, AQ10xxxx, 10xxx, void. Miraculously finding his ...

I love bbo and love people cheating against me. Sterner competition what’s the problem for online practise sessions?

Which is the biggest sin? (corrected version)
Ron, there are a zillion hands where i need help analysing. Whether to open or balance is about judgement or bidding theory which is not the purpose of this post. More to try and understand why something clearly more sinister goes on, not just in World Championships but at every ...
Which is the biggest sin? (corrected version)
Our style is sound openers and balancing at match points looks clear as a passed hand. The post want really about my actions!!
