Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
The competing analyses of whether leading the DA was "demonstrably suggested" by the UI, given that the comment was AI, and whether not leading the DA was a logical alternative present interesting issues of bridge law and bridge logic. However, with the exception of brief reference by Messrs. Grainger, Cole ...
Not your typical lead problem
I hope that I am not the only reader who was extremely troubled by the write-up of the Blue Ribbon Pairs appeal that was published in the December 1 Daily Bulletin. As I understand the write-up, the section headed "The Appeal" was intended to present a summary of the arguments ...
ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
In response to Larry Sealy's comment about Marvin Barnes, it should be noted that the original Bad News Barnes was Jim "Bad News" Barnes, from Texas Western, who was a number 1 draft pick for the Knicks in 1964, which was 10 years before Marvin Barnes came out of ...

To Sabine and Roy
As I read the reported results for Board 3 of Session 7, it would seem that West is reported as having led DJ at Table 22 (the Auken/Welland table), but at five other tables(11, 14, 16, 17, 25), South is reported as having led DJ. Can it really ...
WBF vindicated ?
With all respect, Mr. Hartman's comment is confusing to me. The word "approbation" means "approval" or "endorsement." Surely, Mr. Hartman does not mean to suggest that the WBF should expect a "tsunami of approval."
