Clash by Night
I played the 24 hour YC marathon once many years ago and enjoyed it very much. Good to hear it is still going. Even more years ago in my student days I remember an even longer one. Myself, a friend Steve, his then girlfriend (later wife) Sarah, and his then ...
Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
6 years is quite a common period for this in jurisdictions I've worked in - both for voluntary amendment and for audit by authorities. However there is often no limit to how far back authorities can go when "fraud or negligence" are involved.
Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
Adam - 3 years is nothing! I've filed Australian and UK tax returns for almost 20 years now. Moved to Australia and am resident there but still have UK property income as well. What I find classic is I still cannot file the UK one online (at least not using ...
Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
F/N defrauded the bridge community. We as bridge players think that's important of course but the world at large doesn't remotely care. This (if it's true), like any tax evasion, is defrauding society as a whole. Ask the average person on the street which they think ...
Swiss teams - with hand records, bridgemates and less waiting time - it IS possible!
Come to any tournament in Australia or New Zealand at club level, State level or National level for at least the last 20 years! Same for most of the rest of the world. Like several other commentators I could barely believe I was reading this thread in 2017. It would ...
Weak NT's and Two Way Stayman - using "spare" bids
I've played far more weak NT than strong NT over the years. Most of the time I've just played simple stayman, 4 suit transfers and had 3 level responses as single suit slam tries. The latter just never come up. Nowadays in my regular partnership we play 3 ...
Application of new laws - assigned scores
Absolutely. The teammate in question has regularly exhibited exactly those tendencies and yes we know that he is historically slow! But it's interesting that other posters here seem to be saying that under the new laws none of that matters and, where only one board is involved, the director ...
Application of new laws - assigned scores
Kit Richard's previous post said: "It looks to me as though the Director should award an assigned adjusted score under Laws 12C1(c) and 86B1. As I read Law 86B2, since only one board is at issue, the question of offending and non-offending sides does not come into it ...
Application of new laws - assigned scores
OK thanks. I'm still intrigued as to what level of discretion is available (and whether laws 12 and 86 operate independently or whether 86 is only further guidance for the operation of 12). The overall title of law 12 suggests awarding any adjusted score is discretionary. 12A and 12B ...
Application of new laws - assigned scores
I don't get Law 86B1. It seems to contain an initial proviso that it only applies when the Director awards an adjusted score. Then in some circumstances (e.g. like the one we had) (s)he shall award an assigned adjusted score. Which implies the Director must have awarded ...
