Keep Bridge Alive
Because it's very hard for me to imagine any other social activity I could engage in that would make it possible for me to have gourmet dinners with people such as yourself, Roy and Zia! :)
Looking for teammates for 0-10,000 Swiss at Memphis NABC
Just FYI, the position has been filled. Thanks to all for your consideration! :)
Declare 7NT on the Nine of Diamonds lead
<> Well, a certain number of quality defenders would lead away from the club king, with a 75% chance that the club ace is on their left and knowing how much declarers hate to go down on the opening trick. No one is ever leading away from the spade queen. So ...

Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I don't think Bobby would have been thinking about a bid so much as assault and battery.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Michael R: I think we all know your general beliefs on BIT's, etc., and FWIW, I very much agree with you. But don't leave us would you have ruled in THIS case? With the director, or with the panel?
