RESURRECTING THE VERY EASY 6NT FROM THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Well , when you get down to the end game there would still be the 4-4 vs 5-3 major suit probability which is compelling enough to warrant reflection. especially if the opening leader was capable of deception ( and it was on their card as a slam tendency) A player looking at ...
Pretend it is 1993 and you’re at a bridge club.

Ethical, questionable or cheating?
Mike Lawrence in one of the greatest bridge books ever “ How to read the opponents cards “ had a section on reading tempo
Ethical, questionable or cheating?
That was back in the days of “ Black Magic “ and Edgar Kaplan’ ground breaking article in the Bridge World . Circus 1958 if memory serves
The 2!c strong opening is annoying
Natural strong 2 bids were one thing and were pretty accurate. Frequency and tactical considerations gave way to more frequent and creative uses of the 2 level and the GF hands were all lumped into two clubs. Marty Harris is on to something for sure. My good friend Kokish always ...
