Virus vaccine certificate
I am torn about a vaccine requirement. For now, I hope we get sufficient uptake without mandates. But I do know I wouldn't attend a tournament that doesn't require players to wear masks as long as a non-trivial number of people are infectious.
Lead Problem. Are Simulations Believable?
In normal bridge language, a "safe lead" and a "lead that does not give up a trick double dummy" are not the same. At all.
I Got Coronavirus Playing Bridge
The best one-sentence coronavirus advice I have seen is: "You shouldn't act to prevent catching the virus, you should act as if you have it and you try to prevent passing it on to anyone else." Everyone sick passes it on to 2.4-2.6 others on average. If ...
Open Letter to the ACBL on Covid-19
I shouldn't have brought the word "libertarian" into this discussion, apologies. I could have made my point without the first sentence of my post above. No need to make it more political by attaching a label to the "everyone is free to decide" position.
Open Letter to the ACBL on Covid-19

Cohen, Deas elected to Hall of Fame
"and is an author and a teacher" That may have deserved more than a subordinate clause. :)
Arend Bayer's bidding problem: 4 AJT QJT73 AT93
That's what I thought. This was posted in another bridge forum (as an ATB), and I was the first poster to comment that double here looked routine. Seemed clear to me, but thought I'd check whether I was biased by seeing the other hand.
4NT
I would take 3 as natural. No reason to rule out diamonds as a strain just because RHO showed AQx.
