I thought Jordan-Robinson were forced to quit around 1970?

As long as we are stuck with the WBF and the EBL you mean. Arguably there is probably not of confidence in the ACBL either.

If the events 2015 were a starting point for something better, then the EBL and WBF have squashed that movement. Thanks for destroying the game when it was actually possibly to get it back on the right track,

This is like one of the foot soldiers going on to teach the italian juniors, one of the juniors was Fantoni.

I watched a decisive hand from the mixed teams in Orlando. One Geir Helgemo was forced to discard down to 3 hearts with originally KTxx. Unluckily the declarer played him to be brilliant and played him for Kxx which was correct. I confess he would have fooled me.

I think the age profile of US players is probably the most significant factor for domestic attendance.

As for international attendance there are many things that combine. I would venture that Tourism to the US has declined the last 2 years or so, the ETTD-effect.

It is not an advantage for attendance that international bridge bodies have been found incompetent in cleansing the game from cheats.

The international bodies have introduced an endless number of championships at expensive locations, this is a big factor.

I don't think talking italian bridge is racist towards italians. If I made a case against english cooking, that would be true but would not diminish english people like David Burn.

Jannersten was a very outspoken supporter of the Italian team which was evident from all his writings about them in the swedish magazine “Bridgetidningen” from the 50s, 60s and 70s.

I have ordered one from a friend who is going there. I will make her ask Avon for an autographed copy. That would make Avon join the illustrious company of Edgar Kaplan and Eddie Kantar who have signed books for me!

It is great for the game to have a team from a smaller nation do well! Very well done Singapore! Hope you kick some more “favourite team” butt before the tournament is over! In a Singapore-Sweden final I might think otherwise though!

Some scoring that high are gone, some are scoring a lot less. This has nothing to do with the field getting better but a lot to do with video cameras and opponents being aware of how things were done.

No shortage of septuagenarian and sexagenarian males apparently. The world is such a great place with those in command …

Hi Chip. We only played one bermuda bowl match and I will not tell you who won. Anyway, a serious question!

Being the best (IMHO) bridge amateur in modern times, could you expand your views on elite bridge players maintaning relatively demanding jobs? Are the days of great amateur players over? If not, how would an amateur (with partner) be able to reach world class level?
