Poker anyone?
Mark Bartusek preempted me...I'm fairly sure it was Dallas 1997 or so. Maybe just before Kaplan died I sent Jeff Rubens an article for Edgar Kaplan to author which also included the Helgemo intra-finesse, that appeared in that same summary article. I do not recall if Mark gave ...
Computer Bridge: Inferences from the Play to a Trick
Al Levy, who understands these things far better than me, has a deal that exemplifies one of the problems computers need to tackle. In the later stages of the computer competition at Orlando both computers misses a single-dummy defense to a slam of baring a king in the ending because ...

Problem D
The Italian style of using 2C/D as 5-4 and 5-5 majors here might make 2 more attractive than 2?
Shireen Mohandes's bidding problem: KJT AQ8752 AQ8 7
When neither hearts nor spade raises look good, temporize with 2D. If I can get past this bid... (c) Al Roth
