1M-3M: How Do You Play It?
Is this call alertable?
[quote] You can, but the opponents might not guess you can. Instead, they might think that pass just asks opener to bid his suit - maybe responder's 2♥ or 2♠ would be natural. That's why you must tell them without their having to ask what 2♦ means.[/quote] Fortunately ...
Is this call alertable?

The Science of Coronavirus
I don't know exactly, and I'm obviously not a virologist or doctor, but I think that an initial small exposure to the virus might make your immune system start creating antibodies, thus preparing you for a later, larger exposure. On the other hand, an initial large exposure might ...
Flights from the US to Montreal are on sale today
Montreal to New York is a 1.5 hour flight. Stockholm to Berlin is the same time, and I can find a low-cost carrier round-trip ticket for 543 SEK (~55 USD). Jet fuel can't be the difference. I suspect the European Common Market and less overbearing regulations might be ...
Interesting pts/rating system on euchre apps

Flights from the US to Montreal are on sale today
It is interesting that Canada-US flights are so expensive. Normally, you can book an international flight in Europe for 30-100 euros euros for a low-cost carrier and 100-200 euros for a standard carrier.
David Parsons's bidding problem: KQ97 76543 JT J8
I don't use my toys whenever I can. I only use them when I think it's best. I myself play Lebensohl/Good-Bad in this situation, so I'm not particularly excited due to the novelty of it.
