Bridge is a game and should be fun.

Philly Slam Poll 3 of 3: Responses to Queen Ask

ACBL Inaction Regarding Attracting Younger Members
Great comments, Eric. Full disclosure - I'm a District Director. I won't be generallly engaging in online debate, but this topic is near and dear to me, so I encourage discussion.

NAP-B report: two more hands

NAP-B report: two more hands
Thanks: I edited the article to reflect that if RHO has 6+ clubs and the K I am down two on a spade continuation (after LHO cashes the 13th heart). This analysis would also apply to RHO holding 4 spades and 5 clubs if RHO had discarded a spade instead ...
NAP-B report: two more hands
Thanks; fixed (I think).
