A Bridge Swifty
After one heart - pass, "Four Hearts!" bid Tom fitfully (and supportively). "I forgot we play Rusinow," said Tom misleadingly. "Boards go down a table, East-West pairs move up a table," said Tom directly.
I DO NOT Know What To Say.
"One town's very much like another When your head's down over your pieces, brother." --from the musical CHESS I played chess rather than bridge when I was young, but aside from that difference, I completely agree with Alan's assessment.
Hand evaluation question
At the table, I was East. Partner passed the 4H slam try. My stiff king was opposite his AQTx. Trumps were 2-2, and North spared us a guess by leading one. The jack of partner's 4-card suit dropped tripleton so we made 7. Partner then criticized me for not ...
Nice article about chess cheater

Do you try to exploit Stolen Bids?
I played against Fishbein last night. But it was the *first* time I'd ever seen it.
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Jx Kx AKQJxxx xx
Preempter's double after partner's raise to game can also mean: "I want to save, but I'm giving you a chance to leave the double in if you have a strong hand."
I hate my partner
I had a partner pass my strong 2C opener once. (He was a good player, but was distracted by the director making an announcement.) Righty balanced with 2D!
