The LINK to this BBO Movie is Winners at the 2012 Monaco Cavendish Pairs

Mr, Alder is a professional bridge author who writes for the New York Times. This movie is one of his articles from October 19, 2012. converted into BBO Movie format. I think we can agree that the newspaper article comes alive in this format, where you can see the cards turned one card at a time. This particular hand is a defensive hand and it shows how East can figure the hand out early in the play, and plan the defense so that his partner can not go wrong. It is a short Movie, with no sound track an no real quiz. It takes about as long to view as reading the daily hand in the newspapers, because in reality that is what it is. i think most will finish it in less than 7 minutes, many much less.

When I view the movie it starts off with the North and South hands displayed. It would be better if it showed the North and East hands.

I agree. I rated the movie as below average for this reason.
