MANFIELD Wins Mixed Teams
Enough of this daisy-picking. Fantunes were banned by the relevant BRIDGE authority, no matter what silly rules are passed, it's inconceivable that an outside court LACKING EXPERTISE can overturn such a verdict on the basis of bridge. Were the sports court's ruling to be based on a procedural ...
10 card Solid or almost solid suits.
I don't recall ever having a 10-bagger. If I had, with my luck it probably would be JT98765432
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 ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton

A lawsuit would probably, if successful, not even worth the legal ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Tommy Sandmark. It's not a question of kicking a man when he's down, it's a question of simple honesty. Horton could have, should have, might still be able to own up to his plagiarism and be regarded leniently, excused for something that's professional inexcusable; the very ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Tommy, I don't know Mark Horton and therefore have no emotional or nostalgic baggage, one way or the other. What I was trying to say is that, as an outsider, I beg to differ with your suggestion that this affair will have a positive effect on the bridge journalists ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
Tommy, it all sounds nice. But aren't we then condoning Mr. Horton's misdeeds? And I don't quite understand how the uproar on BW is likely to serve, as you suggest, as "a brilliant lessen in journalistic ethics" when the perpetrator is allowed to slink off silently into ...
