Poland's turn - do the right thing!
Michael - Your "wrong hand" scenario reminded me of this: Back when I was a rookie player I was kibbing a good player in a Swiss final match against another good pair, with the event on the line. He was in 2DXX and was in his hand and missing the extra ...
Wan Li Unplugged
It takes some kind of pathological nutbag to cheat in the first place, but actually to take pride in doing so successfully, and to best other known cheaters, is beyond the pale. I can see the padded bridge cell now, stuffed with F/S and F/N around a rubber ...

On the Actions of Administrators
MH - You have one more "Michael" there to edit into a "Mike". Having said that, allow me to comment on your statement (qualified like any good lawyer is wont to do) that "perhaps wrongly" I am being part of the "voicing of the outrage" (unless your connotation was that you ...

Exactly, Karen, and exactly why I posted Tuli's quote.:)
Open Chennai Discussion Thread
"When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge." Tuli Kupferberg American counterculture poet and musician Tuli Kupferberg (born September 28, 1923) wrote a book in 1961 titled 1001 Ways to Live Without Working. As an accidental bonus for readers, there are actually 1005 ways to live without working discussed. Apparently there ...
Regarding the WBF Decision
Well said, guys, but unfortunately the WBF - like most entities governed by committee - bear a striking resemblance to ostriches with their heads jammed into sand. (I have a more appropriate analogy, but this is supposed to be a polite forum.) The WBF addressing reason and taking definitive action based upon ...
