Why not Qxx of hearts with a singleton trump as another favorable position? Two club ruffs and the 3 pitches.

If that works, might be most likely.

The hand could be made if the opening lead was won in the other hand. Whether or not that is the best (or only) play, I will leave to others.

Rapee might have had trouble passing a WBF drug test nowadays.

Thanks, Peter, one of the most inspirational things I've ever read.

Unbelievable how Martin managed to make it through the war solely due to his wits and luck.

Jeff, do you allow players who “wear” little “bad” fragrance (i.e., BO).

From Wikipedia:

The term “begging the question”, as it is usually phrased, originated in the 16th century as a mistranslation of the Latin petitio principii, which actually translates to “assuming the initial point”.(1) In modern vernacular usage, “begging the question” frequently(2) appears to mean “raising the question” or “dodging the question”.(1)

Franck, if you follow world news at all, you will be aware that there are vastly more people trying to move to the US than trying to leave.

Yes, I'm aware that the same is true of France and many other countries.

Ha ha, turnaround in the quality of the Washington Senators in the 60's and 70's. Ha Ha.

Yeah, .531 in '69, followed by .432, .396, .351 (pretty pitiful).

Unfortunately, they were my team until they moved again to Texas.

“..the committee had reluctantly identified support for teams participating in the World Olympiad (briefly called the World Bridge Games) as an area where cuts could be made…”

Was there any area they would NOT have been reluctant to identify?

With regard to the “respect” issue. Ty Cobb and Ted Williams never made a playoff game as baseball managers.

“both sides”, how absurd.

They were on the same side.

Phil is right. The time for counseling, coaching, remediation of the CEO is the 20+ years before he is hired.

Playing bridge is a “recreation”. Building and running an organization is “work”.

In which do we think a large majority of ACBL members are more interested?
