2!C: 6+ clubs, 10-15 HCP

If you wish to probe, your only forcing call is 2!D which is a GF relay which initially will get partner’s exact shape.

Your call?

Vienna Coup or Basic Skill

This hand comes from a BBO practice game, randomly dealt. The daring !CK lead from a doubleton gave the defenders a chance. East won the !CA at trick two and gave West a ruff at trick three. Now is it better for West to challenge declarer with a heart shift or play back a neutral trump? Does it depend on whether West holds the !HK?

Month-to-month Mixed Teams

Bridge Winners has graciously allowed me to tell you about a 2021 online organization – the Monthly Mixed Teams – which unlike other organizations specialize in spicing up relationships during lockdown.

To quote one of our participants: “If we win, we are happy, if we lose, we have make-up-sex afterwards.”

Of course partnerships without this option are equally welcome.

We strive to organize high-quality online events with the best format, results software, TDs, and a daily bulletin with highly personal player interviews.

My Home on 432 Stierlin Road

Take a right onto Alma Street. Drive too slowly, and you’ll be banging your head as the inconsiderate train saunters by. DAMN THIS RED LIGHT. You’ve finally arrived at 432 Stierlin Road.

By now, the route to my home away from home has been permanently imprinted into my brain. Yet each trip never ceases to be full of impatience and excitement. As soon as the car pulls into the parking space, I leap out into my wonderland.

Pushing through the familiar rusty door of Unit 503 Palo Alto Bridge Club, I am immediately welcomed with twinkling smiles and unreserved greetings…

I’m posting this as the Chair of the entire A&C Committee, which functions largely independently of the ACBL Board of Directors in deciding individual cases. Although A&C Committee members have had a chance to comment on this response, the words here are my own, and I bear sole responsibility for the content.
