Most Pervasive "Bridge Club Myths" re Bidding?
down 2? No, more likely it goes 1 - 1 1NT - 2 2NT - 3NT "believing" their bids, you pull the red X ... surely their hands don't match the bidding and they make an overtrick... Next time, same auction by the same oponents, you skip your X and ...

BBO's next generation preview
Regarding played hands - On my android, there is a clock-like symbol at the bottom which makes this pretty easy. And not changing away from flash is a non-option since browsers will end flash-support by around 2020 so something has to be done
Teachers, I could use some help
