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 ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Robert is an expert in both the Bridge world and the Gambling world, but even he is little confused re a ‘ Back bet’ and a ‘Lay bet’. Betting on something to occur such as horse to win a race is a ‘Back bet’. Betting on something not to occur is ...
Shoot me for going down in 4 spades, not for plagiarism.
Addendum: Myrtle Bennett continued to play Bridge in local clubs and, of course, the murder was never mentioned in her presence. Many years later a young partner of hers who was unaware of the history overbid the dummy and as he put down his hand he announced. ‘Partner, when you ...
95 Y.O. Bernard Teltscher Wins Four Stars Teams at EBU Summer Festival
Bernard is an excellent 'after-dinner' speaker and a highlight of those Senior Camrose (Teltscher Trophys) that Bernard has played in or attended is his speech at the meal which concludes the 3-day event. He usually then introduced 'His Serene Highness' who himself was no slouch when he got the microphone ...
