thank you Ian and Max, I saw him once on the street in Rome and had to stop myself from running up to him and saying I love you.

I wonder if anyone reading this has ever played with Omar Sharif? I would love to read any anecdotes about this fascinating man.

At a national tournament for first year students, declarer opens 1 heart, pass, declarer's partner puts down the Double card. When asked by TD why he had done this he said, “our instructor told us always to remember to use the Double card whenever possible, instead of bidding.”

My partner and I were seated at a table at the beginning of the club game with a pair of elderly players, and out of courtesy I asked the opponents what they wanted to play (meaning NS or EW): The answer, “I thought we were going to play bridge”.
Another elderly player at our table after counting the cards for the first hand, said, “Stop everyone, I have 13 cards!”

I started to play bridge only in 2001 but of course I had heard about the famous Blue Team. This is what I was told: at first their adversaries thought they cheated by voice tone when making a bid, so they invented bidding boxes. They still kept winning so they invented the divider on the table in order that the Italians couldn't look at each other. They still kept winning. Is this true?

as another comment here already pointed out. They are taking it very seriously.

The hypothetical pair who would react to cheating opponents by also cheating, must have discussed the possibility before the game and decided on their own method of cheating. You can't just improvise cheating. So as another comment stated, cheaters are always cheaters, on both sides.

If the accusations are correct, people capable of such behaviour surely will not have their feelings hurt by social media “unfriending” them. They couldn't care less.
