Looking for partner for Honolulu NABC
Hi Brett, I have been talking to a potential partner for the 10K IMP prs Mon-Tue, not set in stone yet. I also want to try the NABC Swiss the last weekend. Please look at my convention cards here on bridgewinners. You'll notice I play a simple (especially by ...
Master Points for Foreign Players
Mike They had originally expunged Mr Lebioda from the winning roster and stripped his MPs, that is when my team first heard of it. We objected to that; we did not want to go on record as losing to that team without him. Our district pressed the case that the ...
Master Points for Foreign Players
My team lost a close match in the finals of the 0-5000MP Mini-Spingold in 2008 to the team that included Lukasz Lebioda. Playing for Poland in the 1970s, he placed 4th in World Teams and Pairs championships, 2nd in a European team championship and First in the London Sunday Times ...
BW 2/1 GF: Final Conclusions

BW 2/1 GF: Final Conclusions

SD Blackout
My suggestion: Adalberto's, straight down Market St to 25th St. 24-hr drive-thru. The best burrito, weed or no weed.
Nice double squeeze
At t.5, after winning the DA, a West player who has some knowledge of squeeze defense will lead a club. Declarer needs C entries in both hands, and if E has the Q and 9, a club will break up the squeeze.
Looking for partner for Senior Swiss in Toronto
I am interested. I will be playing in the GNT Flight A, which of course I plan to be in through Sunday. I played in the SS Teams last time it was in Toronto, and finished 12th. I live in Cleveland OH.
