Remembering My Dad
And, Matthew, for your benefit Bobby Thompson hit what was called "the shot heard round the world," a 3-run homer off Ralph Branca which won the 1951 3-game playoff (the regular season ended in a tie) for the Giants over the Dodgers, from NY and Brooklyn respectively.
Remembering My Dad
Never met Matthew's father, but did know his mother, who lived in Jerusalem and played bridge there some years back. Shirley was a lovely lady, though she admitted that she perhaps was not quite up to the level of her husband or two sons. I remember her not for ...
If you want bridge to be a spectator sport you must make it a telegenic spectator sport. To state the obvious, there are two, maybe three ways to do that -- either you enforce some kind of tempo requirement (I'm all for thinking, but international players or players in the ...
What does partner's double of GF 2!c opener indicate?
Partner's intention was majors, which I missed entirely because undiscussed. He apparently plays that with other partners. More I think about it, more I wonder whether showing two-suiters is really worthwhile, considering that the opps almost certainly have a preponderance of the strength and passage of information is more ...
Thank you Zia!
Amazing! An example for all to follow -- even those of us who don't have the talent of Mariusz and Zia.
Too Conservative or just Unlucky?—ATB?
Who's to blame? The field, I'd contend. West has an absolute max for his/her bidding, and the game is still less than 50%, East has less than no reason to bid on over 3. Drury? It really doesn't help a great deal, depends on East ...
Massimo Lanzarotti in Vanderbilt
With all due respect, the issue is not whether you Avon, or I, or Bobby Wolff or anyone else agrees with the ACBL ruling; at this point, that's immaterial. The practical problem raised, however, is very pressing -- Should players drawn against a team with Lanzarotti as a member sit ...
Massimo Lanzarotti in Vanderbilt
According to what I've just read, Lanzarotti was reinstated by the ACBL late last year, after having successfully met the conditions of admission and apology for cheating violations and subsequent "good behavior" -- in Italy, where he was reinstated some years ago. So, technically, he is fully eligible to compete ...
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 ...
