Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
false carding against fast Freddie and watching him mentally assessing whether or not I was savvy enough to think of false carding.

Would you open this hand?
2D. if we miss hearts they might miss spades. We are hot against not and I am in first chair and I play disciplined in 1st and 2nd chair. Not an opening bid in my reckoning. Go back 40 years and that would be me when it comes to bidding ...
In the Well: Russ Jones
Russ, proud of you. What we expect of a good ole boy from around these parts! Good luck.
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
David Corn, the files reflected formal hearings and results thereof. They did not and I suspect do not reflect "accusations." Fifty years ago I suspect procedures were less formal than they are today and during my tenure as disciplinary coordinator. I am not sure how present day recorders maintain their ...
