ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Clear as MUD (USA2 vs Bulgaria SF Segment 3 board 15)

Any self-respecting cheat (do they respect themselves? - I doubt it) would have several phones. Perhaps ...
Mr. Ernest Bergholt, one of the greatest ever Bridge stars
Thanks Ken - fascinating stuff. Can you tell me how I might get hold of your book and the costs please
The Raibidpura Success Story just got better

LaTeX version of convention cards?
what are these new conventions allowed?
The Cowboy and the Lady
Great writing. Great hand. Raising the bar - bridge book awaited....
Stuck on a boat - bbo rubber bridge anyone?
It's looking like I may be home alone in France tomorrow before I head to Lyon for Friday. If that works - not sure what you had in mind didn't know rubber bridge was a thing on BBO
