I live in Lymington, Hampshire, and work in the Law Courts, which may have made my English slightly pedantic. I realize that Americans and other ex-colonials labour under a disadvantage, and regard it as an holy duty to assist them in speaking (and thinking) clearly.

I think you might need some definitions here. On the face of it, the last two paragraphs would apply to every game in the world; and between two equally lucky players, skill will decide the winner (in every game).

comment Is a bridge defense easier if the values are about equally distributed?
The value of having one person making most of the decisions rather than guessing what partner wants is difficult to evaluate, but gets less as the skill of the partnership improves.
