I play a lot of poker-not at stakes that Justin and Bob do. I can tell you, even the best bridge players give many more tells, then the best poker players-not even in the same universe. As simple as how they take/look at their cards as they take them out of the tray, etc, etc One of my friends-local club game, will pass very quickly, if no cards-even though I tell him, that gives opp a lot of information

Peg, Do not believe Marty retired in 1993, the year I started playing bridge and did not go to nationals for at least 2-3 years and remember playing against him and Larry at a Nationals

Do not understand your ? Ed What I was referencing, I have played with friends of friends-one who is daughter of a multi-world champion and there was a director call, based on what opp thought she did. Director ruling was wrong, but favored the national experts at the table. It was regional side game at national, so I did not pursue it-but told later by National director, that the ruling at the table was wrong

Steve, I know it is probably tough to fill these director positions at nationals-but I often find that directors at club games, etc have better training , understanding then at the nationals.

I agree with everything that Mike as stated. I can also tell you-although, most directors know me-when I play with a friend vs play with a top level pro, at the nationals-the decision by directors are never the same-may surprise you-LOL-this has to stop
