The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Prompted by the OP, I went through my old WC books for examples of 'strangeness'. The one I posted was the first I found. Because I'm not stuck on a desert island, I stopped looking for others. Of course the poll proves little. It was intended only to corroborate ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Yesterday, I created a bidding poll with this hand: AK985 4 1084 KQJ3 and the auction LHO 1 RHO 1 LHO 2 RHO 2; your call? At the time of writing there are 22votes for Pass and 1 for Double Nobody (fortunately ...

Has Burnn erred? Surely nnot!
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
AW has collected evidence, compiled over months (years?), that the Italians cheated. In doing so, he has become convinced of their guilt. Some of that evidence has been presented in the OP, but apparently there's lots more, as we keep getting drip-fed titles of additional chapters. Superficially, what we ...
Psychic Bids by US Players during the 1957 Bermuda Bowl and Related Deals
From Henk's link: "The first interesting swing occurred on board 2, when Koytchou, for the US, opened 1♥ on this holding. Yes, an outright psyche, 1st seat, and not something you’d see in 2017 at the start of an important match. The auction continued as shown and the ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
I'm not convinced that online is the panacea. First, there was mannerisms, BITs, pens, cigarettes, etc. So they introduced screens. Then there was foot-tapping. So they extended the screen beneath the table. And still the c***ts found a way around that. Does anyone seriously imagine that playing in ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
"1. Canape does not equate to artificial" No, and neither does a strong 1 opening. But it (they) were sufficiently unusual in the 50s and 60s to have befuddled the top American players
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
The post prompts several comments, somewhat unrelated to one another. "The gods have feet of clay". I had always felt that the American accusations of cheating were sour grapes on their part. It seems perhaps they were not. If this post is characteristic of the forthcoming book, then it (the ...
1m - 2M your choice.
I favour 1m-2M as weak with five cards in M and four cards in m. This is similar to reverse Flannery but allows opener to bail out in 3m when he has no fit with the major. (Works better when both 1 and 1 promise four, but it ...
Multi 2!D and Weak Twos
I think there are better alternatives. On the basis that all opening bids above 2 should be obstructive, one would want to use them as frequently as possible. If all these bids promise a six-card suit, you are missing out on Ekren, Lucas Twos, etc. (see ...
