For the first time we got in two games in a month, mostly with different players.  While bidding judgment played a definite role, leads, declarer play, defense and even right/wrong siding the contract all contributed to the largest swings of the day.  We had 7 double digit swings and numerous other interesting hands that I probably won't find […]

Played in a game recently where LHO, who used the bidding box cross-handed, had two different ways of bidding. One was reaching across his body with his left hand to the bidding box on his right. The other was squaring his cards, emphatically putting them face down on the table, and then reaching across as above to make his bid. His partner […]

Our team was playing well, and amicably, against excellent competition in the semi-finals of the District 25 Grand National Teams.  We were playing in Flight A, limited to players with fewer than 6,000 masterpoints.Unbeknownst to my partner and me, we had retained all but 5 of our 18 IMP halftime lead entering the last board of the session.

East sort of made this hand easy for me to be +490 in 3NT, but a little better defense at Trick 2 would still have allowed me to make twelve tricks.  […]

The Greek legend of Icarus should remind players that it is dangerous to aim too high in a world characterized by uncertainty and doubt. At a recent club game a pair of visitors handed us a shared top on the last round when the lady sitting South playing in a cold 5♥ contract won the first trick in dummy with the singleton ♣K and saw a route […]
