Bridge 10/10

We are nearing the end of our series on doubles that are not for penalty, reaching the support double (and its brother, the support redouble). This is made by the opener after he has opened the bidding, his partner has responded one of a major, and the next player has made a minimum overcall in a suit (or has doubled for takeout). If the opener now doubles (or redoubles), he shows exactly three-card support for his partner's suit and any point-count. If instead he raises his partner's suit to any level, he guarantees four-card support.

Ask Dr. Gott 10/9

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a 77-year-old man who, about four years ago, was diagnosed with hypertension in the 150/75 range. I was placed on HCTZ, and, soon after, my sodium levels were 117. When that occurred, my physician telephoned me to stop the medicine. Since that time, I have been placed on several different drugs.

While my doctors aren't concerned about this, I have ...
