about me

English club player, average club standard.  President of my club because I think I can fix anything!

\n

Newly qualified club TD, just gaining experience.

\n

Love the game and always trying to improve.  Have played for over 50 years - next year I will be good.

\n

I play 2/1 with my regular partner, very much in the current Italian style with Transfer Walsh and 2!C as 18-19 balanced (same transfers).  Unusual in England.

\n

Retired in 2008 after selling the business - how about that for timing, right at the top of the market!  25 years of management experience in professional business services companies.

\n

I'm the classic polymath, broad but shallow knowledge.  BSc Electronics, MBA, BA History and currently studying for a MA in Military History (just for entertainment).

\n

So I know nothing but can manage anything.  Now too old and cold and settled in my ways to be useful.  But if you want an opinion ...

Who Will Win the Open European Championship?
I don't think many people would have thought that Iceland would be leading after 13 rounds.
Forgive and forget?
I wonder how many NBOs suffer from the same weaknesses that posters here accuse the WBF of having?

May you bid after partner's hesitation
You should do what you would have done if partner had not hesitated. Of course that isn't necessarily easy when the decision is close but you should do the best you can. Here I think I would have bid 3 so that's what I do. If the ...
The end of an ERa 25
I had the same experience driving out of Chattanooga! :-)

John Many thanks for that. I'll get a damp towel and think about what you have said. PS Moderating my language, I suspect the drafting of the Blue Book could be improved. :-)

John Have you read 7C which reads: "Notes: (1) A ‘Benji’ 2♣ or 2♦ opening (or any other opening with a similar meaning) which may have ‘eight playing tricks’ in any suit must by agreement satisfy (a) above. An agreement to make such a bid on a hand with many ...

Jeremy You think there is a crowd? :-) However, club players have been complaining about the regulation ever since it was introduced and nothing happened. Then there was a high profile hand (involving I understand a member of the L&E) which was debated on this forum and probably elsewhere and ...
