IS REVERSE COUNT BETTER
The pair that comes to mind is Levin-Weinstein. Recently I was a Vugraph operator at their table, and I was impressed at how they always played the "right" card. In situations where it wasn't obvious to me that they should be signalling count or attitude, they were on the ...
