"I'm Getting Too Old For This... Stuff"
Nice article Mikael, thanks for sharing. On the first hand, I wonder if declarer should have smelled a rat as Daniel showed up with zero when playing to hand? East Passing as dealer with 8-3-0-2 or 9-2-0-2 would most certainly be unusual (which would be true if your ...
To Sabine and Roy
Michael "Phrasing an accusation as a question, to cast aspersions on someone's character, is one of the oldest and dirtiest tricks in the book." Careful, you may just get the attorney/lawyer "lynch mob" after you :-)
To Sabine and Roy

Sexism In Bridge
This "metaphorical" quote from Sir William Golding gets my endorsement. "I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been. Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby ...
Losing in The Vanderbilt
Should we draw any inferences to the fact that partner did NOT DUCK at trick one? I think the answer is yes. Looking at dummy, partner seem yet to be concerned that declarer can get to 9 by him ducking. Why else the urgency? Ducking seem to the the "normal-expected ...
Injunction Lifted
What a great Aprils fool conspiracy, everyone dancing along nicely LOL
Ruling from the Junior Trials
The key here is IMHO "The E-W pair were playing different methods depending on whether the opponents were playing weak NT or strong NT". One would assume that should help EW memorize asking about the NT range.
