Dealing Effectively With Cheating Allegations
1. It is impossible to prove the negative. 2. This thread/discussion deals with, what, 1% of duplicate bridge played? What about the local club/sectional/congress director, where whatever % of the pairs are illegally signalling? What are these directors, who are the bedrock of duplicate, and the people who ...

Why Are Women's Events Dying and Should We Care?
Just a thought on why, perhaps, men outshine women in the two mind games Kitty mentioned. It is well known/recognized (by most psychologists et al) that women are much more verbally adept than men. Men's relative strength comes in spatial abilities. (And yes, these are generalizations.) Success in ...
Daniel Jackson's bidding problem: QT65 K965 7 9872
4D shows max (previous) pass and what you have. I'm with Hendrik. (And no, I would not have doubled previous round.)
