Favorite Bridge Memory
Making an ill-advised 7 Spades contract. Wish I could find that old hand record. (Update: I found it!)

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Legal Agreement or not?
David: When they were flagged, I clicked on the "I mean it like cigarettes" box, so they went through unscathed.
Legal Agreement or not?
"Poker newbies don't object when someone bluffs." Sure, butt everyone knows that bluffs are part of poker—even people who don't play poker.

First Dupli-Swiss at ACBL club - positives and negatives
Very nice report; thanks. They play a lot of Dupli-Swiss in the Philly area, and I wish more tournaments did so.
ATB: Mist Slam
