Watching Videos of F-N from Opatija
Hi Norbert, great that you have seen and sent (to French organisers of event) video from 2013 and prior to 2013(?) that you believe confirms what you noticed in National Final of the Coupe de France. Can you post links to these videos on Bridgewinners?

Re FF and CN and the ACBL: Vanderbilt. Runners-up in 2014 Reisinger. Winners 2007, 2012 and 2013. Runners-up 2011 Spingold. Winners in 2011 and 2012. Runners-up in 2006, 2010, 2014 (Fisher Schwartz had the measure of FN’s team) and 2015 (Fisher Schwartz again) My understanding from earlier threads c ...
Is my 1!D opening legal (EBU)
A governing body in Bridge should not be making rules that depend on a 4321 point count being used to evaluate hands. Thats like saying everyone must be familiar with the value of the Yen before you can make a purchase. There are other currencies than the near 100 year ...
1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?
I agree that the real question is the reliance on the near 100 year old WORK count. Why should that be the only reference currency. Announce Weak NT or strong NT and add that is usually in WORK points 12-14 or 15-17 but as we don't use that evaluation ...
1NT announcement when you upgrade for length?
Since opening 1NT if one can reasonably do so is considered effective it makes sense to upgrade INTO a 1NT opening. However, for exactly the same reason it makes sense to downgrade (say a 4333 18 count) INTO a strong NT opening bid. Upgrading and downgrading are two sides of ...
Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
Haven't read all 270 comments up to now so maybe already mentioned but seems the WBF can act even faster than anyone imagined as they state in their official ruling 'On 29th September 2019, Geir Helgemo provided a sample that was sent for laboratory testing;' With such foresight re ...
#2 - Which Pair's Resume is This?
Look at a pairs results in the year or years when they have been convicted of cheating - Butlers, tournament results whatever takes your fancy. Then when it turns out their results record is even better - Butlers, tournament results or whatever, in the previous years when there was no conviction for ...

Or as my chiropodist said. "There is profit in de feet"
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Like numerous others I am looking forward to reading the book but I wouldn’t be using the 20/1 quote unless there was evidence that someone had actually bet money at those odds i.e. wager $1000 to win $50. If a bookmaker is dubious about the contest or ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Hi David and Jeff. There was an earlier UK Betting Exchange before Betfair called which was eventually taken over by Betfair. Trying to make the case against the Exchanges that what defines and differentiates a punter from a bookmaker is that the former has a bet and the ...
