Is something powder, pills or running naked in Beijing after losing a bet or poker hand?

I don't think Justin Lall is too different in Bridge prowess to Joe Grue. However it is certainly bad that one of the previous winners of the BB is not able to play again and defend his title.

Similar situations have been suffered by others, not able to go to the US or Indonesia for visa problems. This is not a first time thing or even a China thing.

It would be more interesting to know why Joe was denied the visa and I'm sure it is the kind of material Avon would write books about, although they might certainly sell better in Italian than English.

I think having this hand we'll be flabbergasted to be left playing in 2 Spades. We'll surely have another shot at bidding. It's similar to opening 1 club on a 22 HCP hand with no spades: you'll be surprised to be left playing One Club, so no need to open 2 Clubs.

So all the Eddie Kantar's articles in the Bulletin about percentages and chances meant nothing for Lady Luck in this Tournament?

It is a double squeeze because each opponent guards a suit and there is a third suit that both opponents guard. When one of the opponents stops guarding the common suit, the second opponent seems to be subjected to a simple squeeze. A double squeeze is a simple squeeze on each and every opponent.

I play a direct 4 Clubs over a NT opening as 5+ cards in each Major. Responder can continue onwards after opener has chosen the Major of his/her preference.

I believe South took up too much space with 3 Diamonds and intended 3 Spades as showing a heart Fit, but either North misunderstood or the agreements after a 2 Clubs opening bid were not very good

You cannot be in two teams at the same time in a WBF competition if the two teams are held at the same time.

In South America, as in other Zones of the World of Bridge which represent more than one country, the winners of the Championships are the countries, not the players. So, a qualifying team from any country can be substantially or even completely different from the team that won the qualification Championship.

Aside from that, the representatives of each zone have to be different countries, unlike the US which can send two teams to the Bermuda Bowl.

Why couldn't it be paving the way towards the best game? I bet playing NT with AT of spades as declarer is better than having it as dummy, this case.

There is no part of the Law of Duplicate where specific times are mentioned. If they took 6 to 8 seconds and it was noticeable, then it has to be checked/polled.
