Why is this day different from all others?
"I know I am coming across as an arrogant A-hole....[it] affected me personally in ways that are not rational. I totally went on tilt...Two days later and I need to get over it." Important words to heed come Italy, Dave.
USBF To Hold U31 Trials for 2020 WYBTC
Another potentially biased poster, but I am also sympathetic to the USBF's overall funding decision. However, I do still have a few comments: 1) The trials are scheduled very soon (only 2 months!) before the championship event. This makes it certain that travel will be more expensive than if ...

Epic Finish in Seamon USA2 Final
Condolences to the Wei team. They were fierce competitors, tough opponents, and played fantastically both in our match and throughout the event; the match could have easily gone the other way. Very empathetic to them, having been in a similar (albeit less dramatic) position in the USA2 final four years ...
Should District 9 have resigned?

Looks like your welcome gift offered more than your typical entrée in Salsomaggiore. Good luck to you and the team!
Faulty Claim Ruling
Michael, I reread the claim statement provided by the OP again. What specifically in the wording convinces you that declarer will play first? While I agree that my conviction that declarer would play first was somewhat unfounded, it certainly doesn't seem precluded. There are 'conflicting' things, neither ...
Faulty Claim Ruling
Being the only person that voted -3, I must be missing something? I'm supposing based on the claim statement that declarer plays the A, tests , then cash from the top. Testing certainly does not require playing three rounds, and there are certainly reasons not to play ...
