    A “Key” Convention. Cast away on a desert island with just a pack of cards and just three conventions, I would have to select my conventions carefully. Both Stayman and Transfers would be with me and the third would be a form of ace... read more here

    Opposite Approaches. Game values? If you have them, and you have a 4-4 major fit, then it seems a good idea to play in 4 of that major. Normally. With less than game values, it can also be correct to seek out a major fit, too. One hand below took... read more here

    Proving North Wrong. One mark of a good partnership is that when one player takes a rather unusual action which backfires, that their partner is, at least outwardly, very understanding. The “sinner” feels bad enough in recording a... read more here

    The Easy Way, The Obscure Way or One Down. I have mentioned more than once that even playing Pairs, there is a lot of good sense in taking a line to ensure your contract and worry about possible overtricks later. They are certainly worth having,... read more here
