about me

My parents taught me bridge at the family dinner table when I was six.

Andonis Dalgas's bidding problem: KQ95 84 QT42 A54
IMHO this is entirely a matter of partnership agreement. I have a slight preference for opening, but will do what partner expects. Most of my partners expect me to pass this, so I voted for pass.

In theory, using the actual play from other tables rather than a poll seems good. In practice, finding tables that had the same auction, same carding agreements, and same play up to the critical point might be difficult.
Is this a way to run an organization?
I like the idea of allowing a smaller top flight. I'd let the directors decide if the top flight played one two-day event or two one-day events, either KOs or round robins. I also like the idea of permitting any team to enter the top flight up to a ...
Poll Regarding Drop-Ins from Soloway to Blues
As far as I'm concerned, the more the merrier.
