The Last Five Days
@Welland I have on three different occasions publicly asked you if you spotted the miss-scored board or not. You have not answered. Now, in your own thread, it would be highly unusual if you did not respond “because you did not notice” my question. So, did you, or didn’t ...
Poll on bidding restrictions around HUM, Brown/Red sticker classifications, etc.
Professor: Two negatives cancel out. But there is no language where two positives cancel out! Voice from the crowd: Yeah, right!
Double entry
Instead of "N-S -140" why not display "Smith/Jones +140"?

Big Club is a Good Thing. But it is not so good when the opp’s interfere, either with hysteric preempts or with psychic bids. The solution? A two-way club! Because our 1 club usually is weak, thinking opp’s will interfere on a “normal”, “conservative” basis. So? We open ...
To Sabine and Roy
@David "I do not think there is any ethical onus on Welland and Auken to behave in any particular way." Isn’t it? SUPPOSE they checked the score. SUPPOSE they discovered the mis-scored board. Wouldn’t it be unethical/bad manners/ungentlemanlike NOT to report this?
To Sabine and Roy
Why not ask Auken-Welland if they checked the results for session 7? And if so, if they did notice, or not notice, the amazing score on the hand in question?
To Sabine and Roy
@Ken “Curious hand”, observed Oscar the Owl. “Both sides can make 4 hearts. Doesn’t happen very often.”
