Introducing BBOH (anti-cheating device)
On this topic BBOH is much better than screens, where it is easy to create a discussion on the different explanations on the sides of the screen.
Introducing BBOH (anti-cheating device)
Bridge rules say that you should tell opps your system, not the way you use it. If you open a 4441 1 NT once a year, when you do it you don't alert. We could even develop a way to record system deviations from a specific pair and to ...
Introducing BBOH (anti-cheating device)
I basically like that. Anyway I remember in the 80s when it seemed that the creation of screens will had destroyed the cheaters forever... So it is probably best to be aware that we could have to deal with hackers, noise-makers, etc. It could be an interesting twist to have ...
Improving vugraph
Make one room start 3/4 boards after the other in the last rounds of KO matches, and let the players at the featured table know the actual score of the match, maybe with just 1-board delay. This could cause some funny twist in the endings and will let the ...
The Image of Bridge
I love to talk about the future of the game.. since I think it is dangerously on its way to Death. Let's try something. One way is to look at the winning examples. How could we imagine 30 years ago, that we were now having TV channels all dedicated ...
Where Do We Go From Here?
NO, the coach in stages, meetings, etc. was Giorgio Belladonna. Zucchelli just made a trip to Plovdiv - I had just discussed this. In later years maybe Zucchelli did more since Belladonna became ill, but Fantoni and I were out of the Junior category.
Where Do We Go From Here?
Well, well, well. Before that Championship I partnered Fulvio Fantoni for around 2 years (1985/86) and I am pretty sure about myself :-). Moreover, the Junior team of that time was much more than two or three indipendent pairs: along the year we shared stages, trips, meetings, all with the ...
Where Do We Go From Here?
@ Bob Heitzman: a mr.Lennon citation is needed: "You may say that I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one...."
Where Do We Go From Here?
I think Nedju has been a little rude in describing the 5 categories of players, and categorizing is not that simple- I had had myself in my bridge experience both tried to be paid for playing and to pay someone for playing (and I did not like neither). But it ...
Where Do We Go From Here?
I can make an official statement here: in 1988 I was runner-up in the European Juniors Teams Championships in Plovdiv. My teammates were Fantoni and Nunes who played together for the first time. I would not dream of returning my medal to EBL. Reason: they were little more than teenagers ...
