Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
You be the Judge
I credited east with 100% of the blame: a) Unless west is a known psycher, East can see virtually all of the high cards between west, north, and east. Therefore, ducking the club risks blocking the suit. South can have at most a queen. b) It must be important to ...
Bridge vanity license plates
QBIDDER is my own personal plate. END PLAY was the plate of a long time friend, some time ago. I always longed for PLUS790 or some variation of that.

Retiring TD -- Roger Putnam
Congratulations on a brilliant career, Roger - you are a terrific director, as well as a wonderful partner! I've always enjoyed your expertise as a director, and you have built a solid reputation that will be hard to top.
ACBL Nationals Start times
Yu, as a west coaster I applaud your comment - yes, the proposed times are exactly the opposite of what would appeal to us travelling west to east. I concur with later start times east and earlier times west, but I would still support tweaking the start times earlier on the ...
