Re: Nic Hammond's "Detecting Cheating at Bridge"
Keep the screens of course. Get rid of all the paraphernalia that the cheats will always have a field day with. I am not a favourite of online bridge tournaments but we can use bidding machines so that the tray and bid boxes are not needed. Keep the card play.

Namyats In Duplicate
The benefits are you can open 4Hor 4S strategically. My definition is that 4 m is " classic " 4M is not. Would open the 1st one 4C but not the second. I would open 1H with the second. namyats is not everyones cup of tea but aggressive tactical 4 M openings ...

Proposing a Simple Rule for Good-Bad 2NT
Only by opener , only when opps have raised or implied raise to 2 Major and responder has bid at the one level neg X , 1M or 1NT. Having those constraints result in a solid imp gain ratio. Probably should change to bad good but not worth fretting over .
