A pet peeve in club games
David is one of the top players in our District and considered so on both sides of its US/CA border. I always find the strength required to pull a green card in the pass-out seat. I like the idea of waiting for the opening lead to be made before ...
STOP (to support Adam W, et al.)
How wonderful! When we do away with the stop card I will have several choices over a pre-empt. I can pass instantly and show a weak hand or I may tank and then pass showing about 10 - 13 balanced. A tank followed by NT could show a splinter in opener ...
Good Defense by Greco-Hampson
OK - a club to the A and a heart return to force the Q putting the J in control - nice uppercut. Now I will be able to sleep tonight. :)
Good Defense by Greco-Hampson
I also watched it and still don't believe it. I have replayed the movie twice and don't see that Dan could go down with the few tricks left to play then the concession is agreed to. Of course the movie stopped. I put it down to operator error ...

UI in club games?
South didn't take 20 seconds to ponder the bid before passing. East should use the stop card and once south has seen it make his bid and remove the stop card. The original procedure was to announce "skip bid" and then call out your bid. The fact is that ...
Unusual NT
Two lowest unbid suits. I also like to be specific with Michaels and over any minor a cue-bid is majors. With top-and-other you can overcall and use judgement. Like Dave Kresh just said "Makes life easy for partner".
What is the bridge system that has most impressed you?
Yes I have the Roman Club book. Only one of our group had the grey power to learn it but it sure was effective. The Neapolitan 1NT overcall is a splinter of opener's suit with sound opening values and at least 2 biddable suits. I would like to try ...
What is the bridge system that has most impressed you?
To answer the original question "What is the bridge system that has most impressed you." It was definitely the Neapolitan Club. It was the late 50's when Playboy Magazine published an article which explained why the Italians had routed the best that NA had to offer. A few or ...
