DD - A Useful Exercise
4 lead?
Without regard to the actual deal
After voting for a club lead, I regretted it... even though I see Sylvia Shi's endorsement above. Craig Biddle threw me off track by the way he phrased the problem. This is not a lead double. This is a rare but true penalty double. Partner knows they won't ...
Can it be penalty?

Dark Ages Bidding for Beginners?
So is 2/1-GF: playable but not perfectly. I find nothing wrong in teaching SAYC. It's a first step towards learning 2/1. I taught bridge for 20 years. Most of my students are club (duplicate) players and most of them converted to 2/1 after a few years ...
