Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
Exactly what substances was Helgemo punished for. If he was taken down for beta blockers or diuretics it's beyond ridiculous. Beta blockers are commonly prescribed for people with cardiac problems, by slowing the pulse rate they may relieve strain on the heart muscle. Diuretics are often used to lower ...
Great Players; Great Books
Master Play and Reese's other books, with the over-my-shoulder approach, are in a different class from the others mentioned here. IMHO, Reese was the first to write not about what a bridge player does, but how he thinks. Seems to me that's more important than describing technique, as ...
Bessis and Meckstroth Win 2019 Cavendish Pairs
Kudos to the winners. The combination of the BBO vugraph and commentary, the videos and the excellent Cavendish website with running scores and comparisons available on every board in just about real time made for good Internet spectatorship.

Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Me too Charles, me too. In a way i find Horton pitiful, unable to own up to what he's done. On the other, after a lifetime in journalism, I have great respect for the work of others, and as such consider plagiarism morally and ethically repulsive. There's nothing ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
There is a small problem with your comment, Mr. Brenner. The criminal, so to speak, has not been convicted. As a matter of fact, he seems to have gone into hiding to avoid trial -- or in this case, facing his accusers. Many of those who criticize Mr. Horton and his ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
I don't get the ACBL bulletin, so was not aware that he has a column there entitled Misplay These Hands with Me. But I have seen a column with the identical name in Horton's online bridge mag, and can't help but wonder if the "misplayed" hands and ...
