I never imagined that anyone could be so obtuse as to take that sentence seriously.

Living, as I do, in perpetual fear of Eugene “The Grim Reaper” Hung, I shall leave the deleted article in limbo.

Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,
And waste its sweetness on the desert air.

Then your tables are most fortunate.

The 1998 AU Trials had a procedural penalty imposed, and the end result was no winner, no loser, no draw, no tie and no explanation.

I am glad to see that Richard and I have very similar definitions of the word, “interesting”.

I agree with this…

If diamonds run, a large number of notrumps will come home; if they don't we will make only a diamond partscore. Craig's simulation, below, suggests it's about even-money.

Many pairs will blast 3NT, while luck has dealt us the means to stop in 2. Time to stay low.

Thanks… this is an option we can consider.

I have the all the Blue Team Bowls and Olympiads… I will get them scanned when I am back in Thailand (probably in Sep).

Meanwhile, let's hope some kindly soul has PDFs lying around…

Well, Nicolas Hammond is working on a witch-hunt of his own:

I believe some interesting observations arise from his data analysis of Blue Team players' actions.

I want to commend Bjarne and Florentin on doing some excellent work.

I believe Bjarne has written quality code that handles the problems of PDF scans to text - skewed text being the main one - and automates the process of producing LIN files.

Florentin has done some good housekeeping/tidying-up and will, at a later date, make 1958 available for data-interrogation.

When I posted a request here:
https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/the-missing-years/

I did not imagine the results could be so quick and reliable.

Another win for Bridge Winners!

I'll be buying a copy.

And I have access to the LIN fines for 1958… a fascinating year.

…and naming a second player, whom you accuse of illegal drug use

That name does not appear.

As for Robbie, he is currently playing in a game of like-minded players, and will be there until the end of time.
