Long Ago and Far Away

Poll on Psychs - 1
I have psyched less than five times in the last ten years. However, my bridge life extends back to the time when psyches were quite common and there were times when I might have psyched five times in two weeks. Once I psyched that many times in a session. (Oh ...
