I agree that this is a problem, Debbie, and your entire post resonates with me. One would hope that those responsible for buying boards in the future, whether clubs or units etc., could choose the board colors more carefully.

There is a vast scholarly literature establishing the unreliability of “eyewitness testimony” (or, more accurately, eyewitness recollection) in a wide range of contexts. It is not at all surprising that an event at a bridge table would be differently recalled by two different players, even if neither had an interest in the outcome.

Indeed! Donna made it possible for our family and so many others to attend Nationals and feel comfortable that our children were also having an enjoyable time. We were grateful then, and are grateful still, for all of her hard work and dedication.

Congratulations on your many successes, especially the win in Orlando!

If you were to have children and were to teach them our game, how would you go about it? Would you first teach basics of play of the hand? Bidding?

What aspect of how you (and your siblings) were taught the game do you think best helped you appreciate its beauty most quickly?

One improvement on the current entry fee situation would be for players to have three options: (1) pay $xxx per person to play the entire week, dropping into the pairs at no additional charge when one is eliminated from the teams; (2) pay a lesser amount per person to play only the team event; (3) pay a lesser amount to play only the pair event.

The eventual, total fees paid per person under option (1) might be about the same as under the current system, but it seems more palatable somehow to pay a single flat rate for a full week of play, rather than a large flat rate for what might be only 2 days of play, followed by the opportunity to pay another large flat rate to play the pairs.

Thank you for the kind words, Nick.

Just to add to your impressive listing: This was, I think, Irina's 7th world title and Fiona's second.

As for Kerri: Her ten world titles have been won across five consecutive decades ('78, ‘89, ’90, ‘93, ’02, ‘06, ’11, ‘14, ’16, '18), a record of longevity at the top unlikely to be equaled in any other competitive endeavor.

Indeed! Brock/Brown were wonderful teammates, and Smith/Wiseman were top-notch and gracious opponents (as were their teammates). The very young Yvonne Wiseman displayed great talent and poise and has a terrific future in the game.
