Feedback for Convention Chart, Part 2
This has been asked and answered earlier in the thread -
Feedback for Convention Chart, Part 2
[i]Multi contains 4+ cards in hearts or 4+ cards in spades. Therefore it is constructive by item d. What am I missing?[/i] Therefore item b is always redundant, which means its inclusion is confusing. Edit: I suppose it's not completely redundant when used in combination but it ...

Watching Bridge (Online)
James, if you right-click on the player you want to watch and select 'Kibitz ', then your screen will be less sticky.
Gene, there is now a Welsh language set although those games are indistinguishable from Clabbers. At the risk of breaking the site rules, it is fair to say that the USA game is mainly run by Trump supporters (America First, no words from anywhere else), the rest of the world ...
