    fancy going from brilliant chess to chance game bridge , as well as far as I have observed it is inferior to 500 as no misere - it is for the mentally limited
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    Thanks for that insightful analysis. It would seem your debating style is modelled after the idea of misere.

    I think you have invented a new category where the player both bids and plays the cards in open view, but without ever looking at their cards themselves.

    Rubbish. Misere is overvalued and tedious. As noted on the 500 thread, we downvalued it to 130 to stop the constant misere-calling stuffing up games.

    Better to ban it entirely. Then you only have to put up with the whinging of people with poor hands wanting to stuff up decent hands.

    Last time I played out of seven hands I called 5 times (won 5) misere was at least 3 or them, my partner was most upset as out of game but I said look we won - had not played for ten years at least before that. Misere is my favourite it takes away discrimination of the royal family, gives the proletariat a go.

    Does bridge and 500 differ in many other ways?

    500 is definitely better than bridge.

    Misere can be a problem if it is bid too often
