The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Meanwhile, that 10 shift doesn't look to me like evidence of anything much. Against a declarer who psyches a lot it's a plausible choice, and it's possible Belladonna picked up something from Koytchou which suggested his heart suit wasn't genuine.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
This is the first deal in [i]Bridge with the Blue Team[/i]. The play record on bridgetoernooi confirms that the report of the play was accurate. It's just a simple squeeze. But declarer did very well to reach the winning position. ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
I'm curious to know when the golden age of majestic, and presumably clean, bridge is supposed to have been.

Stay or Run and UI - Corrrected
Suppose opener had explained 3 as a transfer to clubs, then bid 3NT. Would that show a hand which was willing to play 3NT opposite a weak hand with long clubs, or a hand which wanted to play 3NT opposite a club slam try? Since we don't know ...
English selection for Venice Cup
I'd rather it went the other way. If we're to have mixed teams events, let's schedule them so that the best players can play in them.
Bad Lead or Sleeping Defender or Both?
I don't agree with the lead, but East did have a reason for it. There's no reason for West not to win the diamond and switch to clubs. East usually has six clubs here, certainly five (would he lead 7 from 874?), but he didn't lead them ...
