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 ...

\n

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Time to simplify the laws?
The game is slowly dying, something that makes me rather sad. However, I don't see any reason to accelerate the process. :-)
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Anybody who accuses their opponents of being unethical should be castigated.
Multi 2D/Mini-Multi 2D and the new ACBL convention charts
This debate seems very odd to those of us who play elsewhere. At my club, in England, we have pairs who play Polish Club, Standard American, 2/1 and a variety of forms of Acol including Acol Multi-2. (Precision has disappeared sadly.) Of these I think only Polish Club ...
The History of History (Part 1)
Excellent article highlighting the difficulties of dealing with cheats.
World Bridge Series Team Winners
Two English ladies in the Gold Medal team and two in the Silver Medal team which bodes well for the future.

Tomasz - I don't think freedom of speech is restricted in the UK. You can't defame people without the risk of being sued but apart from that you can say pretty much what you like.
Club policy legal?
Law 40 B2 (a)(v) allows the restriction of "psychic artificial calls". The EBU used to forbid the psyching of a 2 opening bid.
Defense to Multi at the Orlando WBF Championships
Jim, I agree that there are other consequences but I was trying to keep my post brief. When we played Multi we used it alongside Dutch-2s and a weak 2NT for the minors, defences to both of which need to be considered.
Defense to Multi at the Orlando WBF Championships
I played Multi for many years but gave it up as my partner and I concluded it didn't work that well. It is really easy to defend against.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Correlation isn't causation! Maybe they were just past their best?
