What do you lead at trick 2, and why?
First rule of the system is don't forget the system and the second rule is don't invent system at the table. Currently my usual post match discussion on the signal issue goes like this: "How many f****** times do I have to say it. When you can just ...
Food for thought?
Its routine for me systemically and otherwise to commit to the 3 level with a 5530 in 2nd chair at any colours. I'm unsure if Benoit thinks I am a low level or high level player. I think the big picture is that you should have a style - you ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
I am anxious to agree with your point Ed. A psychiatric disorder is not heinous either. My response included the notion that the original poster was plainly referencing an act of paedophilia which is a crime.
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton

I play with the bots a lot and unlike many who don't regard it as bridge I think it is great for my game. I enjoyed going through your bot system. Has the process of coming up with an optimum system for the bot caused you to reflect on ...
Can systems be too well defined?
If you assume that partnership understanding is as good as it can be then judgement, playing your opponents and guessing are where the big money is. Conventions are like Sirens luring the user to ignore a simple reality. I like Staymen. The others I play (except the ones I invented ...
What happens after a psych
In the pantheon of ridiculous bridge rules the mandatory pause for a skip bid is surely leading the pack. I think we should assume that East had the kind of pause associated with some clown bidding his long suit in front of him when when he had a 14 million ...
