about me

I still love to play, altho I do worry about the future of our game; I am a neurologist, with a headache center just North of Chicago, and avid hockey player.....

...and This Double is?
Action, takeout, usually with tolerance....Yes, these low level auctions, we can sometimes nail them BUT...more often we want to compete, if you save these for penalty, you just cannot compete with many hands(Jx Axx Qxxxx Kxx)....
Plan the Play 6N IMPS

At times...
If you do that prior to pulling trumps, you may risk a spade ruff; presumably S would have led a stiff spade; on the other hand, by pulling trumps, S will have another shot to discard the Q of spades when we use a diamond entry to ruff out the ...
