Bridge 6/20

This week, we are looking at deals where the side with the balance of power does not have an eight-card or better major-suit fit. Then we usually end in three no-trump, but we are studying ways to find out if that contract is doomed because of a weak suit.

Bridge 6/19

Yesterday, we started to look at how to investigate the viability of three no-trump when we have uncovered game-going values with a minor-suit, not a major-suit, fit. After you have agreed on a minor suit, bidding a new suit at the three-level shows a stopper in that suit and implies weakness in an unbid suit. Partner is being encouraged, if he knows your weak suit, to bid three no-trump with that suit covered; or to show values in another unbid suit if he is not sure of your weakness. This deal complements yesterday's because the South hands are identical.

Ask Dr. Gott 6/19

DEAR DR. GOTT: My husband is 56 years old. Every year he has a blood test to monitor his cholesterol levels. Here is his profile: cholesterol 200, triglycerides 322, HDL 39 and LDL 97. Last year his triglycerides were also elevated at 287, with normal being less than 150.

Kids want to be able to be in contact with their friends.

7 relationship problems you should stop arguing about

As a marriage counselor, I see all sorts of couples in my office. They come to me with problems ranging from infidelity to not putting the cap back on the toothpaste. When they decide to go to marriage counseling, most couples have decided that their problems are so big that they need to get it sorted out - or else.
