N.B. the answers occasionally have the odd mistake (!) -by all means  
check with their originator but if common sense dictates that when an
answer should be a bid of (say) 7H and it is written as 2D ...then it is
likely that a typo or a form of madness has crept in. Cum grano salis
perhaps .It would be perverse in the extreme to cry foul every time
you notice such a thing. And if you must , no need to contact .Thanks
awfully.
