Change of Heart
Maybe it's bad bridge but I like 3N as my first call. We might get drilled on clubs, sure. For that to happen, two things need to go wrong: 1) Partner has no club stopper 2) Opps need to figure that out. Could it happen? Certainly. But we have ...
The notorious doctors
MR: "In team sports, it is accepted practice to try to 'get away' with stuff. In bridge, it is not." In some team sports. Perhaps many/most. In curling it is most certainly not accepted practice.
Bridge on "Corrie" .... including some cheating
Next week: Those characters weren't actually cheating... it was their Evil Twins.
Michael Hopkins's bidding problem: J43 AK A872 Q842
Just in my own partnership, this one could be grounds for divorce. I'm bidding 3, and raising with two-card support will not please partner. But in our partnership, her bid is hopefully 2N for clubs and hearts and cramping opposition, and the club fit's on.

Not sure about this. Sounds well and good unless/until you're in a jurisdiction where the rescuers make a mistake, and no good deed goes unsued.
Simple Game
I kind of like opening 1NT here. I understand it's an underbid. OTOH... --It's not a gross underbid. KQ touching good, spots good, but only a 12.25 Woolsey Point Count. --You might miss a decent game try, sure, if pard has good-11 etc...but you're also ...
Another Reese-Schapiro Hand
If you read Wilsmore's book, you'll note he found actual witches.
Repeat Locations for Nationals
"Here’s an analogy: In the sports world...the tennis majors are always in London, Paris, Melbourne and NY -- they don't go to XYZ, OH just to rotate around." Seriously? Those tournaments have thousands of 'kibitzers' turning up daily, many of whom pay well over $100 to watch the ...
