Thanks a lot, very useful information. BTW are the articles, which were never published, saved from oblivion? Would love te read them…Another question: where can I find “The Ransom of Red Chief” by O. Henry.

In 2011 Sjoert became World Champion and indeed,a dream became true! He has got his revenge! But guys like Maarten Schollaard and Jan Jansma also played the final in 2004 and weren't in the Veldhoven team (2011). I feel very sorry for them, I now realize that they (perhaps: we'll never know) deserve it to call themselves world-champions. And like Maarten and Jan there are many victims, sad, very sad :-(

Nickell lost from Kasle. Berend van den Bos and Joris Lankveld are playing in the Kasle team. A very young and promising pair from the Netherlands. Hope to see them soon on the VuGraph :-)

I especially enjoy reading Daily Bulletins from the pre-internet era because these bulletins are a treasure trove of wonderful photographs, marvellous sketches, splendid deals, and tremendous stories and anecdotes.
Therefore, we (Frank van Wezel & Hans van de Konijnenberg) decided that this material should be at the disposal of all bridge players. At the same time, we want to save the history of bridge from oblivion. Therefore, in januari 2013 we launched a free website www.bridgedailybulletins.nl. On this site you can find thousands of scanned bulletins, both from the digital era and before. We posted WBF, EBL and ACBL championship bulletins, as well as many from miscellaneous tournaments around the world.

We think that the site satisfies a need which is felt on all sides.

We received numerous enthusiastic reactions. For example:
Articles about our site were published in the magazines Bridge (The Netherlands) and Bridge Magazine (England), Bridge Magazine (Australia). The Daily Bulletins of famous tournaments, such as NEC, Gold Coast and Spingold, contained articles about www.bridgedailybulletins.nl. On www.Bridgewinners.com we published a serie of articles (From the Archives). John Carruthers, editor of the IPBA bulletin, wrote a wonderful review in the IPBA bulletin (Feb 2013) titled: Journalist Heaven. In the Daily Bulletins of the World Championships 2013 Bali articles about the site and complimentary remarks were written by the editors.

As a result, almost 360.000 bridgeplayers visited our site the last 18 months. At the moment, the site has more than 20.000 visitors monthly. And the number of visitors is rising every month. This is remarkable, because we haven’t made lots of attempts to bring the site to the attention of bridgeplayers

I would be more than glad to scan old BW magazines (and also old Bridge Magazines from the UK) and post them on our site. I guess thousands of bridgeplayers would love to read those old articles, and besides - as said before - in doing so we save the history of bridge from oblivion.

If someone is willing to ship old BW's and similar magazines to the Netherlands, pls contact me!! Just send me a private message.

PS At the moment we are scanning bulletins. End this year we'll post them. And publish again some articles on www.bridgewinners.com
PPS Of course I'll ask Jeff Rubens for permission before posting the BW's.

Pass (1H will be forcing), later I'll bid 2/3 H, asking for a H-stop (that implies I have very decent clubs).
