Plans to reopen
The bridge correspondent (Julian Pottage) of the UK’s Daily Telegraph newspaper recently wrote “The seating arrangements in a bridge club are similar to those in a pub. So as and when pubs are back open and allowing customers to sit where they like inside, we can expect bridge clubs ...
England women's trials
The ladies have trials on every weekend in January, so it’s back for the Lady Milne trials next weekend.

That was the Lady Milne trials.
England trials - success for BW members
Well done Mike and Ben. Although the NGS is not a perfect measure, it is interesting to note that Mike and Ben are currently the top “mature” pair in England. Only two “evolving” pairs that participated in the trials are above them, who are the two pairs that qualified automatically ...
What is an Expert in EBUland?

Could a less than completely ethical player make a slow double on a hand where they are confident of taking the contract off, e.g. holding KQJ10 of spades and an ace, or could they get a ruling against them for the slow double in this circumstance?
Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
@David Gold Do you adopt the same policy to the partners, team mates and sponsors of convicted collusive cheaters? That is, those playing with them after they are allowed to play again.
John Currie's lead problem: JT6 J KJT8643 95
North was "old school" where double meant "lead the first suit bid by dummy", and his AQC sat over the king. South was of the "figure out what I want" school. That was minus 1210 (I was the lucky west). Needless to say there was a heated debate, with North ...
