Tax attorney in Atlantic City, NJ.  Playing bridge since 1972.  Inherited much of my sense of bridge humor from Dave Treadwell, so beware.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Drop/pitch versus finesse
After Drury 2, I challenge any pair to get to 6, let alone a pair consisting of a human and a robot.
Art Korth's bidding problem: AQ KJT986 QJ98 9
I cannot answer your question. But I do know that 3 was game forcing. With the information that I have about opener's hand, I cannot tell you whether it was meant as stronger or weaker than 4. If I had to guess based on what I know ...
Drop/pitch versus finesse

The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
David: I knew that was what you would say as soon as I posted my response. Charge the known criminal with theft and let the jury decide guilt or innocence. I am looking forward to seeing the defense that is presented.
Rate North's bidding
Jumping to 2NT (natural) by a passed hand, whether in an uncontested auction or in response to an overcall, is suicidal.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
David: Really? So, if a Rolls Royce which was on display in the center of a casino suddenly disappears and no one can figure out how it happened, but then a known criminal attempts to sell that same Rolls Royce to a third party, you can't convict that known ...
Russia Reinstated in World Sports Competitions
Cheating in world sports and cheating in bridge seems to go unpunished by the regulatory bodies as a matter of course.
