Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
Norman: I think Bridge is classified as a sport in some countries but not all. Sadly England is not amongst them and the EBU lost a court case last year in an attempt to change this. I also believe Seniors are not subject to drug testing at WBF events but ...
Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
Aren't Seniors exempted from the testing process anyway as the Olympic movement doesn't recognise such a series? for seniors then the wBF could have no rules or some amended ones that don't involve banning for taking body building drugs.
Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
Isn't there previous for only disqualifying part of a team? When someone refused a drug test in a World Championship (equivalent to a fail) they lost their silver medal but the rest of the team kept theirs. It seems to me that if you take illicit drugs and break ...
Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer 1927-2018
I had heard the story but have no supporting evidence. However the 1935 Laws of Contract Bridge support the idea but give his opponent the right to cancel the bid. Law 22 6c says "if a player c. Bids more than seven, either inadvertently or in order to make his ...
Champions of Bridge and Chess Showing Sportsmanship

Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
It was, as you say, but changed last year and is now the same as the WBF and EBL.
Tollemache Qualifier - Group A
I expect the team members(Middlesex and Sussex do).
Should Monaco Decline 2014 EBL Gold Medal?
I think this would have been better resolved by disqualifying Israel as has happened and then if legal issues would not permit them to disqualify Monaco as well then to freeze the remaining positions and leave the title vacant. I can't see any reason why anyone thinks Monaco will ...
Congratulations to Monaco! Now named official 'winners' of the 2014 European Championships
Worth noting, with the calls to renounce the Gold Medal, that Monaco did not choose to renounce the silver one they have had since 2014. That gives me cause to doubt that they will do anything different now.
What would make you miss a favourite bridge event?
Parking costs in Brighton were certainly a big downside. Last time I went it cost me well over £100 for the two weekends plus one day. In Eastbourne it cost me £4 for the same thing. The cost of staying for 10 days is certainly one thing that has caused ...
