2nd European Winter Games

Your Legal/Etiquette View
Your partner has just messed up the defence, but declarer doesn't know whether it was your partner or you. If you show declarer your hand he will know which of the two of you is an idiot, information that it may be in your interests to conceal for the ...

BW 2/1: What is 2/1?
No real need to count. For every one of the five one-level opening bids, there are five two-level responses. Mind you, should Richard Fleet and I ever play what would be about our third game together in the forty years we've known one another, we would indeed play only ...
BW 2/1: What is 2/1?

Redoubling a Balancing Double
It shows doubt. What it shows doubt about is that the result will be the same at the other table.
WHAT IS SPORT?
Golf was played in the 2016 Olympics, the first time it had featured since 1904. It will appear in the 2020 Games (or Sports) in Tokyo, a fact that has led to the Kasumigaseki Golf Club admitting women as full members for the first time since 19,040,000 BCE ...
