often people use GOSH when they see me declare even though I did not double and bid a suit. What does that mean?

IIRC, it means "if I recall correctly".

1. ODR = offensive to defensive ratio
2. POS = pos = positive
3. SF = semi-forcing, but I suspect you mean SP = semi-positive
4. DN = double negative


Pos has a more common meaning lol

How do I use the card symbols in a chat ???? what are the short cuts ???

Short cuts for suits can be written by pressing exclamation mark immediately followed by first letter of suit. Short cut for suit symbols are as under:
!+S for Spade;
!+H for Heart;
!+D for Diamond;
!+C for Club
Here "+" means to type the letter (small or capital)without space.

Welcome to the forums, ilumi3. But this question was already answered 3 years ago, there's no need to answer it again.

Also often Pard and I presume short for that.

I think it's more accurately spelled "podnah". :) It's most often simply abbereviated "p" as in "wdp", but "p" by itself can be ambiguous, so when the mood strikes we add the other hard consonant in "pard" to clarify.

It was just a joke. People say gosh because I'm bad at declaring.

Pard comes from the Dutch word for horse (paard) because some bridge players have the social skills of one.

Pard, P, or pd are more polite than CHO.

I think it's from the Wild West pronunciation "pardner", as in "Howdy, pardner".
