Playing   Pass systems

Some think they cannot play pass systems because they have been forbidden in their home-country.

To that - All kind of systems and features are allowed in major events like Bermuda Bowl.

Such regulations are a guard for poor players who are afraid of learning the facettes of their sport. The regulators are doing a poor job.

On WEB we don't have any regulators - so please enjoy and for those who don't play such themselves - take the opportunity to learn new facettes of your defense skills.
