Hardly.

I had the opportunity once, miraculously (carried by my partner) made the final and it was a thrill of a lifetime. Played against Edgar, Kit, and a barrage of superstars not typically in my bridge circle.

Great memory.

Wrote a story once called “All Alone in the Individual”.
One (2 board) partner complained when I labelled her a “reasonable victim”. She was correct, I was insensitive.

One morsel of your writings I recall was not opening 1NT with “two flaws”. This has at least two. I wonder if the same hand could be opened as 1♥ or if the strength in insufficient. I suspect as much.

Not sure about that Peg. I value my 152 Masterpoints dearly.

I pay for my subscription. Agree with Doug. Perhaps asking Jeff Rubens for permission would be best.

Thanks to you Avon, I get to play (although I am constantly on lead) in an awful lot of world championship events.

Merci,

Brain cramp. Fixed (with Eugene's help).

My mistake.

Apart from the MSC (which I love) there are recent championship results with expert analysis, Challenge the Champs, book reviews, insightful editorials, proposals for new conventions and much more.
As only veteran Bridge World subscriber may recall, I was invited by Edgar no less to join the MSC panel. My invitation is still - “in the mail”. :)

Worth every penny.

In bridge and golf, there is an understanding written into the rules about fair play. In golf, you are expected and required to call a penalty upon yourself.

The line…“Winning. It all comes down to winning,” Dr. Eric Bean wrote in an e-mail interview with the Globe.

Winning = money. Sponsorships, bonuses, cars, goodies, and everything (I wouldn't know) that comes with life at the top.

It's the Money - honey.

As long as cheating pays, it will endure. Last I saw Fisher/Schwartz (and of course others) have not renounced their titles nor returned their fees, nor will they. We can't even get our league to strip titles from self-confessed cheaters.

Little wonder cheaters thrive with impunity.

Pathetic.

Some people (perhaps retired with no life)…..(JS)

Johnathan, I respect your expertise and advocacy.

As a “retired person” I do have a life. Perhaps you might be more judicious with your choice of words.

I love retired life, and it was forced upon me. It does not elevate nor diminish me as a person or bridge player.

And I still respect you and your ongoing contributions to our game.

Hope your retirement is wonderful.


Best,

Bienvenue a Quebec!

You are right to draw attention to sub-par service. Maybe this will result in change.

I trust others will enjoy a superior reservation experience.

And, I hope when you are on your way back home, you get to say, damn I liked Montreal and had a super time there.

And for that matter, any NABC. There are lots of volunteers working hard to deliver a positive experience, and maybe, they will succeed.

Lots of magnificent cuisine, culture, alas - no Expos.

Besides, you can't get better poutine anywhere.

Perhaps Mr. Morphy was not referring to bridge per se but rather the back room dens of card sharks, fixed games and more cash-oriented endeavours.

I have a “Bridge” book, (maybe one hand in the entire thing) called The Devil's Tickets. Cards were sinful (back in the day) in many communities.

I doubt the moral standards of chess players deviate significantly from others who enjoy like intellectual pursuits.

I have a bridge story featuring Mae. She was very witty, funny, clever. Coming soon to book sellers near you. (sure)

My personal favourite:

(To the leading man - in a movie).

Mae: “We're intellectual opposites.”

Poor Sap: “What do you mean?”

Mae:“I'm intellectual.”


Curtain.
