Title:Deal of the Week #384 - Waking up in a cold sweat
Author:Fred Gitelman
Summary:Dave Didur, a long time reader of The Deal of the Week, recently woke up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night, realizing that he *could* have made a difficult contract. I bet you all had that happening to you.... He was kind enough to share with me the deal that interrupted his sleep. It is presented as a play problem (that *should* be solved) in this week's deal.

Title:Expert Errors
Author:Fred Gitelman
Summary:Most bridge articles are about brilliant bids or plays by brilliant players. Believe it or not, these brilliant players also make their fair share of terrible bids and plays.

This article presents three bridge problems, one each concerning bidding, play and defense. These problems all come from the 1992 Fall Nationals in Orlando. In each case a famous player made a horrible error. I will try to analyze how such good players can play so badly.

Title:The Antisocial Network
Author:Danny Kleinman and Nick Straguzzi
Summary:Chthonic, a computer program that claims to be the worlds greatest bridge player, is back in this short installment by the authors of "The Principle Of Restricted Talent", and "Human Bridge Errors: Volume 1 of Infinity". These two books, like this article are a wonderful blending of humor with expert bridge technique.

If you like "The Antisocial Network" you might want to consider the two full length books about Chthonic. I own both, and have bought copies as gifts for my bridge friends. - Ben Dickens

Title:Winners at the 2012 Monaco Cavendish Pairs
Author:Phillip Alder
Summary:The 2012 Monaco Cavendish Pairs tournament was won by Lotan Fisher and Ron Schwartz from Israel.

It was a most impressive performance by the young Israelis (Fisher is 22, and Schwartz is 25), because they led after each of the six sessions against a very strong field that included 7 of the world’s Top 10 ranked players.

The deal presented here resulted in only a small gain, but it shows how to make defense as easy as possible for partner.
