CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
In December 2017, just after the end of their ban period, there was a mixed team championship in Istanbul. Yılankıran formed a team (probably sponsored, with a turkish player and 2 foreign ladies) and participated, his permanent kibitzer was not there at this time. I was not there, but I ...

Upside down attitude, standard count
I am glad to hear that there many other pairs preferring this method. When I say upside down attitude (& upside down discard) and standard count, it sounds heretic to some people. Switching from standard count to upside down count is not trivial for me and more importantly I do not ...
The 'joy' of crass-imps
I guess some people prefer crass-imps and some others madpoints.
Why are IMP pairs events so much more popular in Europe?
I am not very literate with scoring methods, what happens to top & bottom scores in cross-imps?
