Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
This seems like overreach to me, particularly given the use of testosterone supplements in men of bridge playing age (19-25 ;) ), and the non-existent use of them for performance enhancing advantage in the bridge world. Maybe the bridge hurdles. Wasn't the IOC the final court of justice for the recent ...
Card holder abuse
I voluntarily use a wooden card rack (with 4 different depth grooves) (to avoid CTS/RSI/arthritis stuff causing problems to my programming career, but not currently out of necessity - I'm in my 40s ), and it has been pointed out to me multiple times how precisely spaced my cards ...
Is it my choice?
I would open the hand, and since it keeps getting better and better with every club bid, I would regret not being able to open it. As two passed hands - do you want to be jumping (regardless of points), or do you try to play in a partscore at the ...
Collegiate Spring Online Tournament Results
I heartily agree with Debbie - having watched, coached and recently proctored this event for many years. The teams are now required to have a human proctor in the room, which will give you some idea of what has happened in the past. On the brightside - they usually vugraph many of ...
Unusual over unusual
If I recall, the distinction is that "Invisible cue bids" refers to competing where one suit is known (eg Michaels for a known major and unknown minor), while U/U is for when both suits are known and you have a choice of cuebids. That said, Steve's idea of ...
Matthew Dyer's bidding problem: Q63 J63 JT AKT83
An entirely fair point, but as I mention in my first comment, this was at a live teaching table at a college club where these things had not been discussed, so like the young man at the table (making his first unusual over unusual bid ever), you get to choose ...
Matthew Dyer's bidding problem: Q63 J63 JT AKT83
I should add that vulnerability was made up (although this hand knew he was red), and that we were talking through the hands. The 2N bidder is a competent C flight player with expected college-player tendencies (overbids at every opportunity and ignores vulnerability).
Matthew Dyer's bidding problem: Q63 J63 JT AKT83
This hand came up at the Northwestern University bridge club, shortly after the adoption of unusual over unusual by the player holding this hand. There were two adults at the table, with profoundly different views on the hand. I presented it to a very experienced B-flight pair, and they appeared ...
Why does Harvard hate bridge?
Peg Kaplan is correct. You should abandon your education in Cambridge and attend the colleges in Minnesota with bridge programs. There is bridge, college bridge, and then dealing with university rules. If they won't let you use the name, win it without giving the college credit publicly, and take ...
Changing The Guard - attracting younger players
I think the answer is to look at the two places where it has been successful. The Atlanta Youth bridge program has been enormously successful over the last ten years, with numerous young players entering the system, and I would be curious to hear from someone from Atlanta why they ...
