Thus depriving him all this commotion?

Has anyone ever alerted a forcing pass? Had one alerted against you? Just wondering. I haven't.

Yes, and Lynn said that very well.

You are right, she did not use the word celebrate. But I find it difficult to see a handful to dozens as “substantial progress.”

Lynn posted, in part:

When I first started to play bridge, in the very late 60s, the bridge world, like the real world, was quite a sexist environment. Yes, a few women–Helen Sobel Smith, Dorothy (then Hayden) Truscott, Edith Kemp (later Freilich), and some others–competed at the highest levels.

Then later in her post:

Today, I think the situation is different. We have not only a few women capable of competing at the highest levels–we have dozens, maybe more.


Is going from a handful to “dozens” in more than FIFTY years something to celebrate?

OK, I thought of a good tie breaker … Let's both chose which will be the team that wins it's match by the most, and which match will be the closest in score.

My choices are: Monaco will win by the greatest margin.

Pan China/Tulin will be the closest in score.

Barry, just because we didn't pick your team to win doesn't mean we don't wish you best of luck today - go get ‘em! I’d be happy to be wrong on this one.

Ditto. Guess we'll have to come up with by how much to determine the winner between us then. I'll think on it.

Congratulations to Andonis and Adriano who played along with me today. They both beat me with 6/8 winning picks to my 5/8.

Well done, Barry & team. You provided some great stuff for us to watch tonight!

Pan China had the best finish considering they started out stuck 24 IMPs after the first segment, to win in the end by 60. Cayne team won by 63, but they were ahead 22 after 1st segment.

So, who for tomorrow, guys?

Well two of my picks are in the widest margins of loss -33 and -53 respectively ugh. Most of the matches are very close, 4 of them being within 5 IMPs or less. Should prove to be some good kibitzing tonight!

Judging by fist quarter results, you're cruising right along, Adriano :)

In the 2nd segment of today's vugraph matches, the Lynch-Lavazza team commanding 3200+ kibitzers, while Cayne-Wolff tables have only about 250 total kibs.

There's a not-so-subliminal message in there.

Steven,

Wouldn't that be like polling the 32+ kids enjoying hot fudge sundaes at an ice cream social if they were for or against hot fudge sundaes?

I guess it's you and me, Andonis. That's fine - mano a mano. Good luck!

And who would Caitlyn Jenner have to play with in the Mixed Pairs?

It is embarrassing, I agree with those who've pointed that out. If the women themselves hadn't petitioned for this segregation, it would NEVER be tolerated by any self respecting woman on earth.

Your point 2 is well taken, Corey. Indeed, who wins this event is a tossup between two teams generally, with a heavy accent on the one. What's the point?

Win the Spingold - become a National Champion.

Win the 8-table Ladies Teams - become a National Champion.

So many are passionate about the topic of cheating and yet the organization that represents most of us goes easy on offenders to the point of absurdity.

What's wrong with this picture?

Looks like the Union Army has won this one, heavy losses on both sides. The majority of responders believe South was either 100% at fault or mostly at fault. Those Damn Yankees! ;>
