Well aware. Hongkong, Guadeloupe, Réunion and many other entities are recognized BY THE WBF. That doesn't make them countries.

Playing for different ‘home countries’ in the Camrose Cup doesn't count. These entities are part of Great Britain. It's like playing for Alabama and Arkansas in the ACBL's GNT.

Doesn't neutral defense, e.g. retutning à black suit at trick 2, work just as well. Eventually West gets in with ❤️K, and plays back a diamond for the trump promotion.

The margin of victory is secondary. Even CAPLIN def. DONNER would be an improvement.

Ray, what you are saying is true. But I expressed myself badly. Let's take for example the Wednesday to Friday morning knockout from the Vegas NABC. True, I can infer who beat who by saving the previous day's Bulletin, where the match-ups were listed.

But I think it would have been more informative, for example in the Friday Bulletin, to see “STEFFAN def. THOMAS by 21 IMPs, CAPLIN def. DONNER by 1 IMP, etc.” rather than the match-ups for the next day. I want to see how my friends did, even if they lost, not the program for the next day.

Nothing specific, Ray. Just a general observation.

I agree that these results are not all that important. But if the Bulletin can list the results of the Bertha McDonald Gold Rush Pairs down to 24th place, surely they can find room for the results of the Bracketed KOs.

I was saddened to learn about his untimely passing. We were teammates at the CNTC shortly after his forced resignation from the Ontario cabinet, and I was so impressed by his personality, integrity and humour. RIP.

I like Steven Allen's example. He is not comfortable bidding 3NT until East shows a reasonable hand with red suit values.

Very impressive performance by Polish players. Strong presence on both Spingold finalists, and the Swiss!

Why would a heart lead change anything? Cash dummy minor suit winners to arrive at essentially the same position?

Watson would be the most overrated bridge book in history if it wasn't for Clyde Love's Bridge Squeezes Complete.

Were the other three hands nearly identical as well?

Maybe this belongs in another thread, but I can tell a beginner by their whining about psyches and omitted alerts.
