No Open World Championships Until 2024?
No you are not the only one.
If all authorities approved
Public gatherings. I know that some here believe, perhaps accurately, that bridge clubs are a special risk category. Less than extended care facilities . . . More than the neighborhood tavern.
No Open World Championships Until 2024? Look at 3:22. I also note that the athlete in question is not representing an US city. The PA announcer in the Los Angeles arena had a tradition of introducing “your world champion Los Angeles Lakers.”
Precision 1D Followups

Precision 1D Followups
E may not wish to skip 3NT, but doesn't need to stomp into it either. 1 - 2 3 - 3* 3* - 3NT** 4*** . . . etc. * Walking to 3NT ** Shows a stop but some doubt about 3NT (3 would ask about s). If E ...
Becoming good at counting cards?
I think it's all well and good to say you can reach a decision point and go back and reconstruct, but if you don't have good habits . . . if you don't take inventory at trick 1, missing points, missing cards and likely distributions in your longest suit (at ...
