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.

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 ...

What would make you miss a favourite bridge event?
Try hyperbole if you want but first as you acknowledge the weekend events were in London and second the midweek events were in clubs with a reasonable geographical spread. This was sufficiently successful that as and when we move back to Eastbourne this will likely continue alongside them happening at ...
What would make you miss a favourite bridge event?
I wasn't clear to me that the EBU ended without a venue. Maybe this is just your spin. After a move to Eastbourne because Brighton was no longer financially viable we moved to London for one year in 2018 because Eastbourne is being refurbished (the venue not the town ...
Changing The Guard - attracting younger players
The length of time is was taking to learn certainly puts off some and that is why EBED developed the Fast Track course which has been taken up by a number of EBU clubs and teachers. It is designed to get people playing very much more quickly.
