Why is it OK for Avon to post this, when both players are alive, but not to post about somebody dead for many years?

I had not heard that Flint was involved in this.

Some years ago some of my friends entered a KO (the top bracket) with 9 teams. They began in a three-way, won one small, and lost the other big. But one team lost both matches, so they advanced.

Another three-way, and the same result. They were now down to four teams and played a head-to-head match which they barely won.

Next, the finals. They were slightly up at the half. At this points, they were about -30 for the entire event, and were in a position to win a four-session knockout with a minus score! Alas, they blew out the other team in the second half and were net plus for the event.

The Truscott story is true, but not the sentence “Many players would have played in both”. Truscott (and she might have been Hayden then) had played in the Team Trials, and was the only woman in the event. Then she played in the NABC Womens, and recognized the hands.

OK, can anybody tell me the two teams we are sending in the Mixed?

Very nice article. I remember playing in the Golden Gate IMP game back in the 1970s. As a “wage slave” I couldn't play in the day games.

Didn't Boris Schapiro win his last Gold Cup at 88, and the World Senior pairs the next year?

Can't you ask before the auction starts? At an NABC, the opponents came to our table late and did not display any convention cards. Before the auction started I asked if they played standard, and was told that they played a complicated strong club system. I knew this, but my partner did not, and I was asking for his benefit.

Why do you have to go to the ACBL web site to see your BR quals? It's printed on the back page of the Bulletin, on the line below the point total.

I could understand a small procedural penalty against opener, for messing with the bidding cards.

I think the time has come to repeat Edgar Kaplan's limerick:

Thanks for the Bulletin's clever
Clarification endeavor

Caffeine works, and it's sold openly at clubs and tournaments.

I have a process question. I note that some of the winning team
entered the Open or the Womens Trials. If they'd qualified to go to China, would they have been eligible to still play in the Mixed? And if not, what if they'd been on a less than 6-player team?

I'm afraid that Goldman was only human. I played against him and Malcolm Brachman and he made the mistake of being dummy. The hand could be made, but Malcolm found the losing line. Goldman remarked “An object lesson in trump management”.

It's the Atlanta subway system, very good by US standards.

Three posts in 35 years? Is that a lot?
