Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Venice Bridge Tournament. Harris Pairs Withdraw.
Well done Jonathan and Jenny. Lots of people talk, including on this site, about taking action but then duck out of actually following through.
Do You Have Any Fun/Funny Lesson Hands for Intermediates?
Try any of the hands from "Hocus Pocus" by Erwin Brecher or his collaborations with similar titles with Danny Roth and Julian Pottage. If you put the title into a search engine, you will get the front cover of each of the three books, all of which contain fun hands.
10 card Solid or almost solid suits.
I cannot remember ever having a 10-card suit myself but I do recall as a teenager, over 40 years ago, kibitzing Joe Amsbury and Tony Sowter at a Pairs event at the Europa Hotel in London when, towards the end of the session, Amsbury was dealt: AQJ10xxxxxx QJ10 --- --- ...
Post 18. Mr. Harold Thorne and his “Bridge In 20 Minutes” little book. Monday 3rd September.
The 2nd Edition of 1935 was also entitled 'Thorne's Complete Contract Bridge'. In the preface, Thorne says "Contract Bridge is now being played in every part of the globe. Many systems of bidding are being used. In consequence, there is great need of an "OMNIBUS" (his capitals), not only ...

2NT artificial and forcing over opener's same suit rebid
Ian, Try asking David Gold. He wrote a piece for the EBU magazine some time ago on using 2NT as forcing. http://view.pagetiger.com/97eygh987erhg9h/ag7er8gy8abbzcx#page15.html
Comments on the CAS Report
I see CAS has distinguished itself again by overturning the suspensions of 28 Russian Winter Olympics athletes for doping and partially upholding 11 other appeals. A British member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and former skeleton athlete, Adam Pengilly, was quoted on the BBC today as saying "it is ...
This was annoying
Am I missing something? Why didn't North open 1? The diagram says North dealt. @Steve Moese; Pavlicek does say the data is limited http://www.rpbridge.net/9x41.htm
What do you play against multi 2!D?
Selena There were lots of interesting suggestions on how to defend against a multi on this thread (in response to a hand I posted): https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/atb-15-imps-away-2-zncvx4pszh/
