I imagine the issues are device dependent and it will be useful when discussig issues whether one is using a microsoft, android, or apple device. Within the Apple family there are often differences between mobile devices like iPads and laptops too.
Karen (Kate) McCallum's bidding problem: Axxx xx QJxx AJx
I'm choosing to defend - my hand is balanced with spread honours in all three outside suits which I like for defence. Defence is also the strongest part of my game and I say, "Go with what you're good at if it makes sense". I'm not confident of ...
Bd 24 Norway vs USA2 14th May
Wow, North has a massive hand. I like 2S after 2H and if partner still does not bid I am likely to X
Bd 21 (5) May 14th BB Norway vs USA 2

Board 9 7 May - Bermuda Bowl Netherlands v USA2 2007
In teams, the 3NT could have been an enormous coup if it made - and really just needed West to have a heart stopper ... a courageous bid that sometimes makes ... as you say, maybe they needed something extra at the time. I have enormous respect for Brink and Drijver's card ...
Double Dummy Day
What a wonderful idea. Is this a USA only initiative? When I looked up the link for Sydney, Australia, the Tugg website said Double Dummy was not in the library?
