Las Vegas Housing - ACBL Great Value but not Consistently Available For All Rooms
That's a great point, Greg. Even with 2 separate reservations with OnPeak, I had to provide 2 deposits - 3 in total to include the Cosmopolitan booking. I'm not getting a commission on this, of course, and what works for me may not work for others. The issue, I ...
Headed to Memphis? Stop by ACBL HQ and visit the Bridge Museum
I second Peg's kudos for Stephanie - and having visited the bridge museum, I think it is a must see for all bridge players!
Goodbye, Russ
I’m shocked and saddened by this news. Seemed like yesterday that I saw Russ last. I guess it must have been in Orlando. He told me he wasn’t doing well, but I never suspected he’d be gone so soon. We’ve been friends for 40+ years. He ...
Open Orlando Discussion Thread
I just got home after 9 days in Orlando and want to give a huge shout out of thanks to all the folks who helped pull off this amazing event! Most notably, I want to thank Jan Martel and Al Levy who did a truly exceptional job. Jan's efforts ...

Eric Murray 1928-2018
I didn't know Eric Murray personally, but I played with his partner, the late, great Charlie Coon for nearly a quarter of a century. It was thru Charlie that I developed an enormous respect and admiration for Eric - as a uniquely talented bridge player, as a lawyer, and as ...
Andy is correct. While my line of play may be most likely to succeed given the most probable a priori assumptions regarding the possible distributions of the various suits - it is not 100% certain. To David's point, "most likely" would have been a better choice of words. "Superior" is ...
It's hard to see how contract can make if this is the case. If LHO has 4-4 in the majors, then RHO discards behind the dummy and no squeeze can operate. If RHO starts with 4-4 in the majors, As long as he also has 3 to a spot ...
Hi Michael, Happy Holidays! I realize this is your fantasy, but in my fantasy, I start with the assumption that LHO is 2-4-4-3 or 2-4-3-4, and I start with 3 rounds of spades, not 3 rounds of hearts. In this way, I delay discarding a minor from dummy until I ...
