Before Bridge becomes part of the Olympics, as a Norwegian, I would like to see roller skiing, roller skating, ski jump on plastic, etc become part of the Summer Olympics. At least we would have a chance to win some medals :-)

Really, still tractor-feed paper?

When you ignore factors you create a false truth. Last week I created a graph, at work, showing how good we are reaching target dates. I couldn't understand why the graph was so positive, when my impression was so different. When I realized that I had forgotten an important factor and added that the new two dimensional graph showed a different truth. If your placement of the board is close to 100 % accurate to the suit one would expect you to want your partner to lead, it should be stated on your convention card. So if the 400 pages doesn't explain this factor the rest will be a false truth.

Antonio, with the actual layout you hit the jackpot (reaching 7). The hand was crazy and creating a definitive is impossible. The hand was played in the two top divisions in Norway, and the approach varied a lot. Your partners hand was AK98643, 987654, void, void. I guess I could make a poll for the opening bid, the openeres second bid, and what to bid on 5H. Maybe the opener (me) should have bid 7H on 5H? I salute my partners bid of 5H.

Good question Christopher. With 1NT you denied a hand with 6/7 hearts and invitational. 4S is typically a hand with maximum one spade looser. 5H was not agreed, but understood by both as a slam try. I do not think you should bid 5H with a weak hand (and long suit), so to make it easier in the poll I gave that limitation.

I have looked at the BZ bidding from the Polish Premier league and taken screen shots. I find it easier to capture the bidding on these videos because of the high resolution. Maybe this could be a good place to start looking to get an idea about what is going on. Send me a message with your e-mail if you would like to download the files.

Looks like the Gods are clearing the path for a Polish gold (no wordplay intended).

I have been looking at 116 leads for the pair thanks to the work of the group facilitated by Hammond. Mind you, the work done by the group is not specific for one pair, but covers about 200 videos making it possible to look at who ever you want. It looks like I should have been looking at the bidding instead of the lead. I focused on the lead because of all the movement from the players. You have resting head in hand, showing five fingers, tapping with hand, closed hand on table, showing one finger, stroking hand on table, etc. At one point, I thought they actually were talking to each other with movements.
Is there a code in there? Not sure. The good thing is; if a pair has 15 different cheating patterns, we would only need to prove one of the patterns to show they are cheaters.

If this was written in a Norwegian culture setting, I would think that it was a deliberate exaggeration meant as a wakeup call: asking if this is the way you want bridge to be played (Picturing a worst-case scenario). Because of possible culture barriers, it is hard for me to read between the lines…

Congratulations, nice job focusing on Boye when two of your “Citizens” has disgraced the national team and the Principality of Monaco.

“Fun” facts:
I have looked at 27 Boards where F-S was North/South and defending
On 15 boards they made a signal with the Board.
In 11 of those, the signal was equal the lead.
Average lead took 11 Seconds without a signal.
Average lead took 22 Seconds with a signal.
In 15 out of 15 boards the signal was equal expected signal.
