Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Do defensive beers count if diamonds are trumps?
Thanks. I’ll look forward to that one.
Do defensive beers count if diamonds are trumps?
Can someone get John McAllister to produce a Setting Trick podcast with nothing but beer card stories? I feel like there have to be some good ones out there.
Gatlinburg regional (4/20-26/2020) is NOT cancelled
There is a critical, MASSIVE distinction between COVID-19 and the seasonal flu - antibodies. Most people have some level of antibody protection against the flu, so their immune systems aren't starting from zero. For COVID-19, NOBODY has antibodies.

ACBL Spring NABC is Canceled
My partner and I have won the district qualifier several times, and each time our understanding was that these were travel funds. This is also why it made perfect sense to us that (1) we didn't get the check until we showed up to play, and (2) if someone ...

Columbus Hotel Cancellation and ACBL response
The processor will side with ACBL. Their one and only role in that process is to see if the charge was validly imposed. It was clearly imposed validly based on the terms of the reservation. I am expressing no opinion about whether ACBL should or shouldn't keep the money ...
T'Pau and the Winkle
Thanks.
T'Pau and the Winkle
I am confused. In the end positioned described, how does declarer avoid losing two more tricks? It seems to me that declarer loses a spade and a club in every permutation. I am sure I am missing something since I'm only now studying winkle squeezes.
