Gavin-great learning tool. Also likely cathartic from your perspective :-)

As general principle, should Joel's choice of spades from known holding (at second and third rounds of the suit) carry suit-preference implications?

Steven-as a Montreal resident and long-time Montreal Canadiens hockey fan, I can well imagine the excitement that would have been generated had our diminutive, but intrepid, left-winger, Mats Naslund (a.k.a. “le petit Viking”), won the 1993 Vanderbilt :-)

Would have been almost as impressive as Mats Nilsland being on the Habs squad that won the 1993 Stanley Cup!

Cheers.

Excellent idea providing up to date scores for early rounds of Vandy!

The ACBL could learn a thing or two from Bridge Winners about generating/maintaining interest in the League's premier events.

Cheers.

Frequency of occurence suggests that 3D is more profitably used to imply doubt as to the best strain rather than as a slam-try.

But one doesn't preclude the other: e.g. if opener was to bid 3NT in response to 3D, responder's 4 level bids indicate that 3D was intended as a club slam try.

The auction at the other table could be the next hand in this thread: notwithstanding Meckwell's unfortunate result, Nickell would have won imps on this board had Hamway doubled Lauria/Versace in 5H instead of bidding 6 clubs.

Some biased thoughts from the frozen north:

1)The fact that Kokish is not in the HOF suggests that something is amiss with the categories;

2)Unless they are international-class players in their own right, clients who build successful teams are builders, and do not belong in the players section of an HOF;

3)Admission to an “Open” HOF means outstanding achievement in the Open division. Outstanding achievement in a closed division (Womens/Seniors etc.) warrants recognition in a separate HOF.
