Eric Murray 1928-2018
I didn't know Eric Murray personally, but I played with his partner, the late, great Charlie Coon for nearly a quarter of a century. It was thru Charlie that I developed an enormous respect and admiration for Eric - as a uniquely talented bridge player, as a lawyer, and as ...

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!
