In The Well: Boye Brogeland
Hi Boye ! First of all I'll join the cheerleading choir and say congratulations on all your deserved successes. I would also congratulate you on your super bridge magazine, which I think is the best one out there (trumping even "The Bridge World"), and your great book. Fot the deal ...
Polly Siegel's bidding problem: AQx QTxxx 9xx Ax
Easy playing transfer from opener after 1-1. Just bid 2 showing 5 hearts and 3 spades and a minimum.
Steven Allen's bidding problem: AKQx AK Tx KQ8xx
I would like the spreadsheet too ...:-) My mail is m@mikvel.dk TIA Mikael
Canada's Bridge Warriors: Eric Murray and Sami Kehela
Just finished reading this again (the third time). It's a classic ! I think Kehela is undoubtedly the best bridge player ever not to win a Bermuda Bowl. Highly recommended ! This book has it all; great stories, great plays, great humour.
Steve Moese's bidding problem: A32 --- K743 QJ9863
ad Bernhard: You're right ! I checked my notes: If opps opens 3Ma; 4nt is RKC after 4 other Ma but SO after 4 And if opps open 3mi; 4nt is SO.

Do you have more to say ?
Answer to Bob an Yuan: I'm sorry i used this format instead of the bidding poll format. I felt this was a binary issue; either bid or pass. In the future I'll use the bidding poll format. BTW: It was matchpoints
Part VI - Moving Honors Around
Well if no-one else will comment I will ! So if I try to make some simple rules. I'll be able to follow at the table. It should be: - Aces are pure don't deduct anything from SF+3 - Kings and queens subtract 1/2 for each swapped to short ...
Psych!
Hi Polly !! You write: Over time, I've been trying to figure out what a good psych is and when to make one safely, as I'm fairly risk-averse. Just a note: You can't make a safe psych .... then it's not a psych :) (because then partner would have ...
Larry Cohen's Bidding Challenge
I will just note that this is an extremely useful bidding challenge book ! Unlike traditional bidding challenges from various magazines - (Where it always seems to be the goal to bid slams on 4-3 and 4-2 fits and avoiding 4ma with let's say a 5-4 fit) - This book deals with ...
