Rodwell did two good things on the last board: he passed and after cashing one high heart, switched to diamonds. Had he continued a second heart, ruffed, another heart ruff would drop the queen and set up heart jack as the second discard for declarer's two club losers.

As manager of a non-affiliated bridge club, we used to have fun bridge once a month. Every hand, the contract was 1 NT redoubled by the dealer. The effort was how to settle for down four (a top!) instead of down five.

May be showing hearts and diamonds. Without interference, responder will bid diamonds first (transfer to hearts) and then diamonds (to indicate a 2nd suit).

Victor Mollo for the sheer enjoyment and Reese for his brilliant and serious writing.

In the Comox Bridge Club (BC), I played with Dorothy Branch on one occasion and with Cynthia Tree on another. I was told that the two (Tree-Branch) have played together.

Congratulations, a well-deserved award (about time).

It is a shame that one team had to lose in the USA1 vs Bulgaria quarter-final match. Bulgaria won the sixth set rather handily (58-26) even though USA1 had their front line fighting it out. I was hoping for a USA1 - USA2 semi-final but that was not to be.

Lot of players play inverted minor suit raises which leaves no bid for the range of 8-11 points. I have seen many of these players play jump shift in the other minor (e.g., 1♣ - 2♦) as a limit raise.

Since we can win gold and silver points in club games, why would we want to sectional or regional tournaments? I am looking forward to the day when I'll be able win platinum points in a club charity game!

These days when opponents pre-empt on any excuse (including a ragged 5-card suit), may be Fishbein should be played more often.

I remember under-leading a King against a grand slam. The declarer promptly finessed the queen in the dummy. After the hand was over, I asked the declarer why she took a risky finesse when she had 13 tricks without the finesse. My partner chimed in: she was trying for an over trick!

There was a time when you had to attend a Sectional to earn silver points; now you can earn them in your club (Stac). There was a time you had to attend a Regional to win red points; now you can win them at your club. There was a time you had to attend a National to earn gold points; now you can earn them in a Regional. Now, we have platinum points; wait and you will be able to win them in a regional.

I like the “concept” of the stop card. In practice, very few people take the required 10 seconds whether you are using the STOP card or not.

One time, I tried a novel approach. “In 10 seconds, I'll be making a call at the three level in the lower ranking minor suit.” You notice that I did not mention the name of the suit. My LHO promptly passed. Well, so much for a novel approach.

I play natural in minors (2 diamonds over 1 diamond opening and 2 clubs over 1 club opening as showing the bid minor). I was surprised to learn that both bids require alert. These days opening one club/one diamond on one or two cards seems to become the norm. In view of that, I would think that more players should play minor overcalls as natural.

In our club (The Bridge Table), once the result is entered, only the percentage for the declaring side is shown; nothing else.

Playing Lebensohl, I'll consider the south hand much more than minimum and bid three diamonds.

The problem with opening one heart is that partner is going to pass with four diamonds to the Queen and couple of hearts. What exactly is wrong with opening 2 clubs and then bidding two hearts over expected 2 diamonds and next time bidding diamonds.
