He said that bridge is a great game. He also said that he is half the age of the next youngest person there.
Another Dream About The NABC
I can tell you that if I dream about bridge it's never about what went right.
Weird ATB problem using transfer responses to 1!c
In my club, and I am sure in many others, the worst thing you can do is bid a close slam and go down, since most of the other pairs will not be bidding it. Better to stop in game and hope to take a trick more than the field.
3-level responses to 1NT

No, East explained the bid as 10-12 with spade shortness (I was Art's partner).

Mike, in the recent Delaware Regional we had 5 teams in the top bracket on the day my team entered. We played an entire day to eliminate one of the teams. Our team lost in the semis and then won third place. In the third/fourth place match we played ...
