Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
Emerald Life Master

Combatting slow play
So much about claiming depends on who your opponents are. Against Soloway and Sontag I would claim. Against Little Old Man and Little Old Lady I would rarely claim. But somehow coercing them to play their cards faster is always a challenge. The trouble is that the director won't ...

Big Ideas

Big Ideas

Big Ideas
We have got to keep NBO events open to all. Otherwise, we'll have to use tax returns as a proof of "professionalism" = "expert". I wouldn't mind it, but I'm sure there are some who would.
