My NABC Robot Individual Journey - Day 1
Thank you everyone for the kind words of encouragement. I will continue to publish these reports until bridge dies out altogether. I have fun writing them, and that should be all that matters.
My NABC Robot Individual Journey - Day 1
Sounds like there is not much of an appetite for these kind of articles on the main page of BW. I'll hold off posting more until we get a robot-dedicated forum.

My NABC Robot Individual Journey - Day 1

Steaming tendencies part 2: part score vs game
I did some research into gambling addiction back when I first started playing poker, so I could keep an open and honest look at my own behavior to make certain I wasn't succumbing. I'm pretty sure I did not. One common story among gambling addicts is that they ...
What do you lead from J982? (Modified)
I understood just fine, Serge. I have a similar dislike for Jxxx leads. The decider in this instance for me was the quality of the intermediates.
