Can cash one high club first if you like.

Nvm, missed your edit.

Blue diamonds and green clubs is the standard for 4 coloured decks and I agree they are a good idea.

You mention that the lady's comment about her number of masterpoints gave you and your partner something to laugh about for the rest of the tournament. Given that she beat you comfortably in the event, I wonder if she had reason to smile also.

It's not a fine line at all. There's a decent sized trench between basic social awareness and etiquette and well, not.

Director seems wrong to me although I'm not an expert in laws. Explanation coupled with 2D bid carries tons of UI and 4S seems a big underbid. It appears that the benefit of the doubt was giving to the offending side, at the very least.

Only knew him briefly from this summer at Canadian nationals and talking to him at LV. Was extremely saddened to hear the news. Was looking forward to playing against him and his brother for a long time to come. Far too young.

If there's more than one of you going it's cheaper to Uber basically anywhere.

I don't think this is true (the casual robots are still playing soloway anyways).

It was a lot of fun playing you guys and you obviously deserved to win the event. I hope you guys are able to do well in China. Got to know Zygmunt (screenmate) and Marc-Andre a little bit over the course of the tournament and they are very nice guys.

I appreciate the humility of your article remembering the hand you should have been in 4S but didn't mention your teammates bringing back -110 into your -920 in the same set :D. Now that's a good teammate!

All the best at the worlds.

I can tell you are fond of your own rhetoric but the hyperbole involved here is outlandish

A lifetime of fabulous achievements and respect in the bridge world versus one vehemently expressed opinion which you just happen to disagree with…which will win out? What suspense.

Who's problem does it solve? It doesn't solve my problems of wanting to play in the best tournaments, doesn't solve the ACBLs problem of declining attendance in said tournaments, doesn't solve the general bridge worlds professed problem of wanting more young people playing. What does it solve?

I don't understand the impact of clients and professionals in terms of whether a competition is viable or not. Competitors enter on whatever team they have chosen for whichever reason and at the end the team that has played the best will probably win. What makes anything about that unviable? The spingold will be won by the 4 or 6 people that collectively play better than anyone else - last time I checked there was no silent auction for IMPS at the beginning of the event.

If I were a client and played well enough to win a tournament as good as the spingold, no matter how much my teammates may have carried me - a Facebook post would be mild salsa compared to what I might dish out in celebration.

Why on earth is it relevant what would have happened if you had decided to exaggerate the length of break in tempo for your benefit?

You're incorrect. It was a duplicate match. I watched most of it.

They've done more than one duplicate match in recent times between high stakes online pros and AI programs.

Here is a link to a story about the most recent one:

Seems weird that you would need basic BIT arbitration explained to you but if there was a significant BIT before 3C and no polled players would bid 3S over 3C (and it’s extremely difficult to imagine anyone doing that, whatever you said notwithstanding.)…do I really need to go on?
