Pardon some nostalgia, but one of the posts above reminds me of my favorite Victor Mitchell story: One of my favorite early partners and one of the nicest persons ever to grace a bridge table was Beverly Bluth. She was very talented but didn't know all the "stars" of ...
Poland should not have played in the Bermuda Bowl.
I don't think it is wrong to like or admire Robin Hood because he stole from the rich but gave to the poor. Likewise, Edward Snowden because he revealed secrets in an unlawful way to achieve some justice for those who had their privacy invaded in violation of at ...

Devil's advocate
Why are so many folks seeing the KQJTx and Kx as a real example; or "seeing it" on VuGraph. It didn't happen folks! It's a hypothetical example of when you may have info suggesting a lead works best but would be unable to select it because it ...
Catching Cheaters
-Peter: Doesn't not leading a suggest partner does not have 1 or 2? Doesn't not bidding 2 or suggest partner does not have 4 clubs (and Q) with a biddable diamond suit? One might therefore presume partner is most likely to have exactly three clubs ...
