Questions on Bridge Mates and Dealing Machines
Definitely To get the same effect, I take the decks from the bottom two boards and put them in the hopper before I start. As I do each board, I add the new deck on top. It makes the whole process smoother and it rotates your cards so that they ...

Common Game 8/8 Board 30
All of the squeezes are simple(even if you can play them as a double) since no suit can be guarded by both defenders. We can ignore the trivial cases where all 3 suits are guarded by one defender and the failing case where South has Clubs and Hearts. Leaving ...
