Anders Wirgren has passed away
I am saddened by this news. Anders and I corresponded a number of times on bridge and other matters. He was a terrific analyst. Shortly after the publication of my book 'Card by Card', on which I had worked diligently and with which I was quite pleased, I got a ...

I like to play the pass of 1 redoubled for penalties. Hands where you want to say "I have no opinion where we should play" might be more frequent, but when they occur we may survive without having a pass available; on the other hand if we want to ...
