Greco-Hampson were +.34, Fleisher-Martel +.05 and Lall-Moss -0.62 on the Butler. It is available in the Monday bulletin. 2 years ago FM were -0.45, Moss-Grue +0.86 and Rosenberg-Pepsi +0.30. I am talking Round-Robin here.

BTW Sweden selecting the Netherlands as opposed to Italy does not make a lot of sense to me. I hope the swedes prove me wrong.

If only counting meetings between these 8 we get:
1) Netherlands
2) Norway
3) China
4) Sweden
5) USA
6) England
7) Poland
8) Italy

Remarkably Italy lost to all top teams except Norway(!) whom they beat handily. This is a small sample but Italy and Poland severly underperformed whilst Netherlands and Norway did well. If Norway gets through Italy I think they will win this: 19.25 vs USA, 19.93 vs China and 17.59 vs the Netherlands is very impressive.

“The US State Department announced earlier this year that they would require most visa applicants to list their social media accounts for screening.”

As I mentioned before, at the Transnational teams in Chennai 2015 team Zimmerman got a ruling on the following hand when declarer claimed without stating a line of play:

The ruling was that declarer should not notice the potential block in and thus was forced to go down. Different strokes for different folks apparently.

As I was the club leader I can confirm that declarer did not state any line of play, just tabled his cards. He was not aware of any problem until the director was called.

Does anyone have a reference to the Team Zimmerman appeal against a claim in a WBF event a few years ago? Maybe the transnational teams 2015 or 2017?

What is the legal difference of not being able to describe your system in a complex context compared to in a mundane context? None as far as I am concerned. Explain what you are playing or suffer the consequences. “Just Bridge” is never enough.

Maybe it is time for some brazilian bridge officials to shed light on the break-up of the Chagas-Brenner partnership!?

Guess the local officials haven't followed the resulting publicity or potential promotion of tourism of previous Buffet Cups. How many can say they know where the previous Cup was held and travelled there because of that knowledge?

Not to rain on your parade but what is the purpose of the Buffet Cup? Is it to display high-level bridge (apparently not), recruit bridge players (what is the plan?), increase media coverage (yeah, right, this thread speaks for itself) or just give some nice travels and accommodation to well connected people (hmm)?

Not to mention what actually was said at the table with the director present.

Rumor has it that the team will be more youthful and “polished”!
