Your Opinion on This Director Call and Possible Re-call?
Splinters are not announcable. You should call the director immediately, not wait for rho to tank.
Computer Bridge: Inferences from the Play to a Trick
Bridge players must disclose their bidding and carding agreements, even if they are implicit from experience. How would AI disclose agreements generated by randomized experience?
What is the best Grosvenor Gambit you've seen?
When my opponent at the club declares with KTxx opposite A9xxx, and I hold Qx or Jx, I dump my honor when RHO wins the trick. Sometimes that winkles a trick for my partner's quack. That's not a Grosvenor, but its cousin is. Declarer has the same suit ...

Follow the Rules

World Class Lines of Play

Bridge vs Poker: The Battle Continues
Not more skill or less luck, just a bigger edge to skilled players (a higher ratio of skill to luck).
USBC round robin format
Kevin, they aren't your opponents. At least not directly.
