The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
This subthread is all well and good, but I must insist it stop, as none of this knowledge will help me get laid.
Deportment -- who's at fault?
Because, of course, with UDCA it's actually low - high rather than just low that determines the attitude or count. So any one card by itself, other than a deuce, isn't determinant.
What are your pet peeves?
Bridge players, with their whining, their insistence that everything revolve around them, their putting hospitality food into their purses (men generally don't do this), their obliviousness, their breathing of air.
Multi 2!D and Weak Twos
I believe this is Zia's preferred method but can't think of any other American pairs offhand that play it. Martel-Fleisher maybe?
Changing The Guard - attracting younger players
How to draw young ladies to the game (and young men will surely follow): 1) stop being so old 2) quit having so many old people around 3) cease saying unto them :it's so nice to see young people playing this game Iv) seriously, just die already.
Your thought process?
Sure, it makes perfect sense. It's something no one can do right away, although the prodigies among us will have a very short learning curve for it. It's one of the main reasons you need actual table time to develop your game.
Your thought process?
A bridge hand is a jigsaw puzzle, and I put the puzzle together. I tend to do like Jim Perkins, and do shape and points.
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
He's also skipped any cultural introductions and is just writing bridge copy. Hands from Atlanta, so far.
GAWRYS Wins Spingold
Martens, Helness, Gawrys, Klukowski, Helgemo. Multon and Zimmerman had already apparently left for foreign parts. That's Bob Heller holding the trophy.
The Times They Are A'Changin'
Were you actually trying to make a point, or were you just bragging again?
