The notorious doctors
MR: "In team sports, it is accepted practice to try to 'get away' with stuff. In bridge, it is not." In some team sports. Perhaps many/most. In curling it is most certainly not accepted practice.
Bridge on "Corrie" .... including some cheating
Next week: Those characters weren't actually cheating... it was their Evil Twins.
Michael Hopkins's bidding problem: J43 AK A872 Q842
Just in my own partnership, this one could be grounds for divorce. I'm bidding 3, and raising with two-card support will not please partner. But in our partnership, her bid is hopefully 2N for clubs and hearts and cramping opposition, and the club fit's on.

If you read Wilsmore's book, you'll note he found actual witches.
Repeat Locations for Nationals
"Here’s an analogy: In the sports world...the tennis majors are always in London, Paris, Melbourne and NY -- they don't go to XYZ, OH just to rotate around." Seriously? Those tournaments have thousands of 'kibitzers' turning up daily, many of whom pay well over $100 to watch the ...
Comments please, on this 2D opening
Just more evidence, I think, that 2 should be a gadget opener, not weak. Even this hand (six diamonds and a quacky 9-count) isn't a weak-2 that most people are happy with. White, as dealer, I'm opening this 1. I'm also risking having to walk ...
