A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
How to run a multi-team event where the number of teams is known. 1. 15 minutes before game time assemble all team captains to review the conditions of contest. (teams must be preregistered to play, so fees can be collected at any point.) 2. Hand out a printed C of ...

This would eliminate the need for the local district to carry the burden of volunteers every 2-3 years. Additionally, the ACBL needs to innovate its ...
Maybe covered above, but the WBF needs to have the cojones to bar these cheaters by putting pressure on the Italian Bridge Federation.
Leo Bell's bidding problem: QT6532 --- 942 9872
At the time, I thought 4 was right on playing strength. However, on second thought, if partner has a relatively normal takeout double, you likely have too many losers. The other possibility is that you can't stop partner from bidding 6N with AK KJx AKQxx ...
