USBF invitational 1: My adventures on BBO part 3
I agree with Leif-Erik that a heart shift is marked, but I think there is a flaw in his analysis. On the hand he suggested, even with the heart shift, declarer can win the club shift in hand, cash a diamond winner pitching a heart from dummy and run his ...
I applaud Bob Blanchard for this posting. Highlighting the need for detailed business planning to deal with our current and projected needs due to the current shutdowns is vital. I think we have to use his thoughts as a starting point - and even now, in the midst of this horrific ...

Junior Entry Fees at ACBL NABC
Hi Don, I’m certainly not advocating violating any tax laws. I don’t know if the argument has been previously tested that the very fact that our public and private educational systems Inherently are providing some of the skills we develop as Bridge players might be argued by a ...
Junior Entry Fees at ACBL NABC
I think all full-time students under age 25 should be allowed to play for FREE in all ACBL events at NABCs. The monies for this should be funded out of the ACBL Educational Foundation. I have no idea how the mechanism for this would work, but I trust that the ...
