"The Lone Wolff": A Year-End Excerpt
Chris....the top ranks may indeed have a moving cast of players, but Bobby is an all-time great in so many ways. Bridge, character, helping others, helping bridge.....the list goes on and on. He is the embodiment of what an outstanding bridge player, and person, should be. I sincerely ...
Is bridge dying? A second look at the health of our game.
When one talks about "the health of our game", it's good to keep in mind that a significant number of people do not see bridge as a "game" at all. When wandering into a bridge tournament and seeing the hundreds of books on sale, or looking at the masses ...
What bridge really needs to become relevant again.
Complex systems are not successful because they are complex...they are successful because their users are excellent players and long-time partnerships who eat, sleep, and drink bridge 24/7/52.

Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Hi Marty, Thanks for your answer! I should have said earlier that I actually did see how it only went down two, and that my question really should have been "At this level of play, how could South have failed to "see" the diamond void in the West hand?".
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Should have added that since North doubled 4D, and South holds the DA, North's double must be based on length.If North leads 4th best from length, and dummy has 3 diamonds, then West must have a diamond void. So simply covering East's play at trick 1, cashing ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Not following.....please explain. With the D4 led, South will win the first two tricks no matter what East plays at trick one. Why would South not continue diamonds at trick 3?
