Double Dummy Corner


Mistakes From The Media

How often do you spot a mistake in double dummy analysis in some newspaper or magazine column?  I do, quite often, and when I do I usually feel frustrated at not being able to tell anybody.  I have often toyed with the idea of keeping a collection, but it always seemed to be just too much trouble until I set up this web site.

Obviously no offence is meant to the columnists whose mistakes are exposed in this collection and I hope none is taken.

If you have spotted an interesting mistake and you like me to consider it for inclusion in this collection, click here.

I am grateful for contributions to this feature, as the only mistakes I am likely to find myself are those perpetrated by Zia Mahmood and Omar Sharif, theirs being the only bridge columns I regularly read these days!
