The GNT's, a modest proposal
Just want to add to Tim Goodwin's note. The D25 Flight C District Finals were held on Sunday and I'm told that they had 30 teams! The GNT organizers are expecting to complete a record-breaking year with a double digit number of teams competing in the Open Final ...
Bridge Students in Springfield, MA
Thanks for sharing the news about this great initiative, Jeff! Kudos to you and all the hard-working volunteers - especially to the Derrahs for making the extra effort to pursue this as a potential opportunity to introduce youngsters to our great game and build a successful program. I'm hoping others ...
Attention All Exclusion Blackwood Users!
The frequency was not the issue. The issue was how illogical it is to suggest a double jump being exclusion when in the logical example, how ever infrequent it may be, you are frequently risking a complete disaster unless partner has the right keycard response that will not propel you ...
Attention All Exclusion Blackwood Users!

Newsweek Speaks
Sorry about my sarcastic comment. I truly felt the Newsweek article was fabulous - except for the reputed crude and vulgar comment from one of the greatest bridge players of all time about Mr. Nunes. I think that clearly could have and should have been edited out or modified, as the ...
Newsweek Speaks
I was much more surprised to read Meckstroth's description of Fulvio than his description of Claudio. I suspect this must have been written by one of Jeff's sycophants!
Maybe Not So Fine
Kate makes a good point, but on the bidding as shown it is more likely that we (and especially East) should assume West started with AQ of diamonds - not declarer. Seems much more likely 2N would have been bid if declarer had that holding. I think it is safe to ...
Maybe Not So Fine
Steve, This is a great lesson hand! When playing a hand, declarer should always try to develop a model of the opponents' distribution - and pay very close attention to the cards played at trick one in refining that model. On this bidding, West is marked with at least 6 diamonds ...
