IS MY PARTNER INSANE? Part 1
Mike, your preferred words instead of "insane" are actually synonyms for "insane": http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/insane
ATB: -710
Actually, Jeff, if you looked at all my comments you will see that I think the original double by West is correct. We may "have them," with no good place for them to go. Only way to achieve this result would be for West to double. So, your suspicion is ...
ATB: -710
Jeff, yes it could. I still maintain that to never support partner's suit when you have 3 card support on this auction - and only 3 trump in the suit that they have freely bid to the 4 level has much danger. There are hands where 4 won't ...

Danailov-Stamatov Win Cavendish Pairs
Jerry, difficult to win most events unless you get a bit of luck. Yet, clearly you guys played well throughout in a tough, tough field! Super to see such nice friends WIN a BIG event! VWD!
North Americans Win Cavendish Teams
I just know they sure look like WINNERS to me!
