Kantar Wins 2017 Lazard Sportsmanship Award
SI did have a column but Charles Goren authored it
Kantar Wins 2017 Lazard Sportsmanship Award
An incredibly worthy recipient who has contributed mightily to bridge for over half a century. I agree with the above posters that,although this award may be long overdue, it is richly deserved. Congratulations Eddie!
UChicago Wins Collegiate Championship
Congratulations Oren. I can say I knew you when. :)
Bridge World in trouble?
Philip: I did not know about yours but I did now about Adam's (via the Kaplan Estate), Jeff's, and (by rumor) Kehela's. Jim Hall (a Minneapolis player who passed away a little over ten years) also told me had one but I don't know what happened ...
Bridge World in trouble?
I was given a lifetime subscription by my parents about 30 years ago and what a wonderful gift that was! But yes I am giving up my 'freebie' in order to do my bit for a great magazine (although not as great now as it once was). Of course I ...

Another good guy gone
I will miss Walter as well. The first time I ever played against him (in our youths) he overcalled against me on a three card heart suit (the KQJ to be precise). More recently, I got to know him again through BBO (broadcasting matches and otherwise)where we would chat ...
Henry Bethe's bidding problem: J72 AJ54 K62 A54
This is a mandatory cue-bidding situation after a serious slam try. It is a matter of partnership agreement whether a four heart cue by me denies a diamond control. If so I have to bid 4D. If not, I might bid 4D anyway or 4H and then 5D.
