The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
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 Flutter.com 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 ...

For some examples, to say that the errors relative to reality from a DD analysis of thousands of hands either in favour of or against the declarer roughly cancel each other MAY be approximately true. So in those cases, fortuitously, the results may be similar to reality. For example, how ...
Simulation: Richard Pavlicek
Averages are tricky to work with. To say as others in this thread have said that a DD simulation sometimes favours declarer and sometimes favours the defenders BUT on average the errors balance each other out and the results reflect the reality is an untrue and childlike statement to make ...
Eric Murray 1928-2018
I met Eric at the 1980 Olympiad in Valkenburg and we had a couple of meals together. We walked to a nearby stadium where Ice Hockey was played and although there was no game scheduled we went inside and looked it over. He told me had played Ice Hockey in ...
