Sorry readers, but I'm not sure how much bridge edification is available in today's post.  I considered moving on to other hands, but decided to stick with my 'standard' of reporting on the double digit swings.  There were 4 of these swings in the Valentine's Day game, 3 determined by bidding, 1 by declarer play.  See if you would make the […]

Looks like I have the "permalinks" problem resolved. For what it is worth, it was an issue involving hosting multiple websites on one account (a technical issue that it took me longer than it should have to figure out).I'm not quite ready to declare the website stable (there is an issue with recent blog posts showing up on the home page), but at […]

I have enabled error logging on our hosting provider. However, it will be 24 hours before I can see any log files (I suspect they save and start a new log file once every 24 hours).In the meanwhile, I'll continue going over every type of configuration file and settings to see if I can spot/guess what the "permalink problem" is (it causes an […]

Then along came Eli Culbertson, Milton Work, Charles […]

A recent matchpoint session at the local club duplicate presented an extraordinarily high number of “double, pass, or bid on” competitive bidding decisions.  With no promise that what worked best at the table is best in general, try your choices on the following hands.Board 4. […]

In My Fair Lady Professor Henry Higgins asks his companion, Colonel Pickering, ‘why can’t a woman be more like a man?’ The colonel doesn’t come up with a clear answer. In the 21st century we are facing the question turned around: ‘why can’t a man be more like a woman?’, and we are finding he can, although not yet reaching the status […]

Take advantage of the upcoming Unit 373 Glitter Gulch Sectional rates at the newly renovated Plaza in the traditionally celebrated area known as The Fremont Experience.
