Do You Count Your Cards?
Back 35-40 years or so ago I was playing with David Burn in the final one day event at the Guardian Easter pairs...I cant be more specific about the year, sorry. This wasn't a frivolous event; not as strong as the main Guardian pairs but the equivalent of ...
Discuss this convention
Kieran I agree in theory but not ALL 5332 hands for us. opening 1C with xx/AKQxx/Qxx/Jxx and hearing 1S-P-4S...not for me.
LEE Leads Reisinger
I know Bill Gates has won some fairly significant events; but to make the second day of the Reisinger on a team of four is surely something worth us all giving him credit for. It took me about five tries to make the second day and when I did I ...

Down Under Coup
acci-dental on purpose.
Poker anyone?
Mark Bartusek preempted me...I'm fairly sure it was Dallas 1997 or so. Maybe just before Kaplan died I sent Jeff Rubens an article for Edgar Kaplan to author which also included the Helgemo intra-finesse, that appeared in that same summary article. I do not recall if Mark gave ...
Computer Bridge: Inferences from the Play to a Trick
Al Levy, who understands these things far better than me, has a deal that exemplifies one of the problems computers need to tackle. In the later stages of the computer competition at Orlando both computers misses a single-dummy defense to a slam of baring a king in the ending because ...
