Put me in as a single...I would love to try again with someone. If anyone is interested in playing, we can work on bid/play for the next 3 weeks. I am self rated as Advanced, but I do have some very great days. :P I live in Sweden and am typically not online past 6-7PM EST.

I can't play that weekend, but just wanted to comment in the thread that people should play and it is great to organize these matches.

Less than a week now, so, who's playing? I'm flying back from China the day after tomorrow and hope to have a large selection of players to choose from when I come home. ;)

Let me double check with my partner, but I think we should be able to make it (and I think it will be fun to play in a JEC match).

Sure, please confirm with your partner and send me a private message so I can keep track.

Come on guys we still need teammates for awm. I am also available if someone would like to play with me. (However I haven't played bridge for over a month, fair warning.)

38-41 after 24 boards, unfortunately we dropped some IMPs on the last 4 for a final margin of 47-67. Nice try guys, better luck next time!

I think we did great and I really felt like we held our own against those guys. Apart from the kickback disaster and the hand below, we had a very
solid game.

Thank you, thank you to our team mates and Micheal, Timo, Larry L, BBO, BBF, my partner and everyone ,
I would never get the opportunity to play against these guys in real life. What a fantastc experience.

Here's the hand that is still making me feel sick...





Vulnerable vs. Not

I wanted to bid 4 but scared off and decided to take the sure +
Perhaps I needed to look at the vulnerability, my 7 card suit and bidding more closely.
