Trick 1 Pause, Platinum Pairs
Why not face up so everyone can think?
Two Strip Squeezes
S9 is a Grosvenor. Based on the auction, I'm sympathetic to South's final decision.
Was this (not) funny enough?
I hadn't noticed any irregularities, in the legal sense.
Tricky Discard at Trick 2! (Flint)

The absence of the word always means not always. Monty Hall himself was very clear about that: he didn't always offer a swap.
Restricted Choice and it's application outside the bridge table.
"he opens another door" means sometimes. Compare to bridge. You hold ATxxxx opposite Kxx. You lead K-x-x-J. What do you play? Does that mean RHO ALWAYS plays the J?
Your Opinion on This Director Call and Possible Re-call?
Splinters are not announcable. You should call the director immediately, not wait for rho to tank.
Computer Bridge: Inferences from the Play to a Trick
Bridge players must disclose their bidding and carding agreements, even if they are implicit from experience. How would AI disclose agreements generated by randomized experience?
What is the best Grosvenor Gambit you've seen?
When my opponent at the club declares with KTxx opposite A9xxx, and I hold Qx or Jx, I dump my honor when RHO wins the trick. Sometimes that winkles a trick for my partner's quack. That's not a Grosvenor, but its cousin is. Declarer has the same suit ...
