Jerry Helms has an interesting article in the April issue of the ACBL magazine: The weak two bids. He states four guidelines which are position at the table, vulnerability, partnership style and partners sense of humor. We see some of these every week at our bridge tables,

Duplicate Bridge is played twice a week on Tuesdays and Wednesdays starting at 11:30 a.m. Many players come early and have lunch at the center before play starts.  All are welcome to have a seat at the table, bring a partner or call Joyce Crowe at 437-2750; she will line you up with a partner.
