MONTREAL "Summer Nationals" in July
And, for those who may be interested, the Queen Elizabeth Hotel was where John Lennon and Yoko Ono staged their North American "Bed-In for Peace" in 1969 and recorded "Give Peace a Chance". According to Wikipedia it was in rooms 1738-40-42-44. Maybe there's a historical plaque up there. And ...
The Origins of RKCB
The Culbertson 4-5 NT convention was included in the updated 1933 edition of the Culbertson Blue Book and documented in newspaper articles as early as December 1932 (Culbertson made headline news whatever he did in those days, he made sure of it). I think that 1933 was when Culbertson made ...
The Origins of RKCB
The British CAB system included the King of trumps in the Blackwood response count in situations where the trump suit had been explicitly set in the preceding auction by sometime in the 1950s. They didn't change the standard Blackwood responses, though, so there was no provision for the respondent ...
What is a No-trump range?
That was the range for the Baron 1NT, counting a 10 as 1/2 point IIRC. But there were a lot of hands that would be a weak 1NT opener today that Baron wouldn't treat that way due to honour location and rebidding considerations. As if point count didn ...
Ethymology of "canapé" in Bridge?
I don’t know whether McKenney ever physically went to the UK, or if his writings detailing the suit preference signal just happened to be the first published there and led some to name the technique after him. He was the bridge columnist for the NEA syndicate for over 20 ...
Ethymology of "canapé" in Bridge?
For what it's worth, here's an excerpt from an article by William E. McKenney published in 1931. This was part of a long series he wrote surveying bidding methods you might find at the time, at least in the Eastern United States, including various artificial one-club and two-club ...
What killed American Bridge--a Poll from the Year 2040.
I answered the first one, which is why I think people aren't taking up bridge, and "other" to account for the fact that people who do play bridge are participating less because of advancing age/health issues more than anything else. The bracketing/stratification issues debated here may influence ...
Modified Baze
The Four Aces in the US started doing something very similar somewhere in the late thirties or early forties. It wasn't in the system book they published in 1935 but Goren mentioned it as one of four "expert variations" on standard bidding methods in his 1944 "Standard Book of ...
Modified Baze
Mike: a groomsman is to a bridesmaid as the best man is to the maid of honour i.e. additional male attendants. You have to suit up, but you don't have responsibility for not losing the rings. Numbers vary according to how big a wedding party is planned. I ...
