Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
None
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Someone has blundered
One of my hobby horses is the way people waste time at the table (I've met a lot of Eric Kehr's opponents I think). I'm not talking about them playing slowly although that can be annoying and having played with a very slow partner for some years ...
Lessons and Power Point
It's not called "Death by Powerpoint" for nothing!
Priorities for the WBF?
"I can't remember our agreement" I fear this is pretty common in my local club and indeed local tournaments. Lots of casual partnerships who say we will play "x" and one indeed thinks it is "x" and the other "X ver 2" Some fail to remember due to age ...
Junior Entry Fees at ACBL NABC
The system on "this side of the pond" is that all those who are U26 get half price entries. The only condition is that their date of birth is registered with the English Bridge Union. In addition those who are in any of the junior squads get free entry to ...
Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup

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
Well it is actually a direct crib from Wikipedia. See here to get a flavour https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counts_and_dukes_of_Anjou.
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
It was, as you say, but changed last year and is now the same as the WBF and EBL.
