Ethics and ruling poll
Sometimes talking too loud about a hand can inflict a punishment where it belongs. Back in my salad days I was playing with one of my erstwhile wives in a three section side game at the year end Regional in Reno. On a 156 average we stroked a 232 and ...

Humorous Bridge Happenings You’ve Experienced
