An open letter to Marc Smith...regarding "Enterprising Tales"
Marc has sent me a copy of Enterprising Tales. It is back in publication and was due out in the spring of 2018 in both print and digital formats. If it is not out already, it should be soon. The price listed on the book is $19.95. I don ...

I open 1. I raise to 2. Knowing this is our style, 4 is a stretch. Having lost the 1st three tricks and still having to lose the A, it's slightly better (imo) to rise with A in an attempt to limit my losses (the ...

Nobody even mentions Marc Smith? Enterprising Tales ranks right up there with one of entertaining books of all time for me. Of course, it helps if you also liked Star Trek. :)
Is it better to double or bid 1H?
Actually... Partner is a passed hand here, So making a "prepared" bid doesn't factor into the equation. Partner should bid his lowest 4 card major, or 5 card if he has one.
