That is, keeps track of the points and distribution in all 4 hands, both by making inferences from the bidding and play, as well as keeping track of what's gone on in the play of the hand thus far. I find counting difficult - particularly distribution. I'd like to find an on-line application to help me practice this skill. There are a couple featuring Mike Lawrence, which look promising.

The "latest results" column provides links directly to the latest results, and indicates when the clubs meet, and the right-hand column gives my opinionated assessment of the standard of the clubs, which errs on the side of not over-egging and frightening inexperienced or otherwise non-expert players away. <BR><BR><CENTER> <TABLE class = "ReadingList" WIDTH=950> <TR> <TH class = "BridgeLeft" WIDTH="25%">Club + Data Repository</TD> <TH class = "BridgeLeft" WIDTH="25%">Official Website</TD> <TH class = "BridgeLeft" WIDTH="25%">Latest Results</TD> <TH class = "BridgeLeft" WIDTH="25%">Standard</TD> </TR> <TR> <TD class = "BridgeLeft"><A Href="../../Bridge/MondayClub/Burstead_Results.htm" TARGET ="_top">Monday Club</A></TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Adopted</TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Monday Afternoon (<a name="W2822W"></a><A HREF = "http://www.bridgeresults.org.uk/Bursteadresults.htm" TARGET = "_top">Monday Afternoon</A>)</TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Intermediate. </TD> </TR> <TR> <TD class = "BridgeLeft"><A Href="../../Bridge/BernieMon/BernieMon_Results.htm" TARGET ="_top">First Class Bridge Academy</A></TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">First Class Bridge Academy (<a name="W2765W"></a><A HREF = "http://www.bridgewebs.com/firstclassbridge/" TARGET = "_top">First Class Bridge</A>)</TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Monday Evening (<a name="W2765W"></a><A HREF = "http://www.bridgewebs.com/firstclassbridge/" TARGET = "_top">First Class Bridge</A>)</TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Introductory - Intermediate.</TD> </TR> <TR> <TD class = "BridgeLeft"><A Href="../../Bridge/Pilgrim/Pilgrim_Results.htm" TARGET ="_top">Pilgrim Bridge Club</a></TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Pilgrim Bridge Club (<a name="W2825W"></a><A HREF = "http://pilgrim-bridge-club.org/index.html" TARGET = "_top">Pilgrim Bridge Club</A>)</TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Monday Evening (<a name="W2826W"></a><A HREF = "http://pilgrim-bridge-club.org/results.html" TARGET = "_top">Link</A>)</TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Introductory. </TD> </TR> <TR> <TD class = "BridgeLeft"><A Href="../../Bridge/Hutton/Hutton_Results.htm" TARGET ="_top">Hutton</A></TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Hutton Bridge Club (<a name="W236W"></a><A HREF = "http://www.bridgewebs.com/hutton.html" TARGET = "_top">Hutton Bridge Club</A>)</TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Monday Evening (<a name="W236W"></a><A HREF = "http://www.bridgewebs.com/hutton.html" TARGET = "_top">Hutton Bridge Club</A>)</TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Intermediate.</TD> </TR> <TR> <TD class = "BridgeLeft"><A Href="../../Bridge/BernieTues/BernieTues_Results.htm" TARGET ="_top">First Class Bridge Academy</A></TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">First Class Bridge Academy (<a name="W2765W"></a><A HREF = "http://www.bridgewebs.com/firstclassbridge/" TARGET = "_top">First Class Bridge</A>)</TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Tuesday Afternoon (<a name="W2765W"></a><A HREF = "http://www.bridgewebs.com/firstclassbridge/" TARGET = "_top">First Class Bridge</A>)</TD> <TD class = "BridgeLeft">Elementary.
