'Curious hand' said Oscar....
Michael, you gave me another bridge problem to think about before going to bed. That's bad. I'll have to hire a sleep specialist soon...

David: If West leads a low diamond and declarer puts up dummy's Queen, shouldn't East cover? It would be wrong to cover if declarer had the singleton Ace, but in that case why would he be playing the Queen? That would be a perfect Grosvenor. After East wins ...

Are tablets the great enablers of live bridge tournaments?
I'm probably younger than 99.9% of the ACBL members and am truly passionate about this game. But no, I do not think that competitive bridge should be played virtually. Our world is virtual enough already, bridge somewhat resisted to that virtual invasion until the current sanitary crisis. BBO ...
