"Top bridge player, 80, collapsed and died at card table after being dealt 'once-in-a-lifetime' winning hand"

Not to nitpick a sad but interesting story--but hey, that's part of the reason why I'm here--but the two references to a "29 point game" should be to a "29 point hand" and the statement near the middle of the piece that "The maximum points total for a bridge hand is 37" should be "The maximum points total for a bridge hand is 40".

UPDATE: as the commentors correctly point out, the maximum points in a hand is, in fact, 37. I thank the commentors and apologize for my mistake.

"17 Times Winston Churchill Proved He’s The Prime Minister Of Burns"

Sir Winnie was simply unmatched

On Conservative politician and Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin: "He occasionally stumbled over the truth, but hastily picked himself up and hurried along as if nothing had happened."
