What is this 5!C?
While I have greatest respect for Woolsey's view on most bridge matters, I find the almost exclusively American use of "Period" to emphasise an argument not just annoying but arrogant as well. "Period" suggests there should be no further discussion on the meaning of 5C.
A Hand From Double Bay...
Curious. Tim also had a mantra that "even when leading a doubleton is right, it's wrong".
Fantasy Brackets for Spingold
While not endorsing the previous thread on bridge pros, this grave issue sounds like it could be addressed by the ACBL, USBF or WBF.
Someone has blundered
I'd rule an infraction against whoever refers to their wife as either or both "the wife" or "the Mrs", although this may vary by jurisdiction. It may be a cultural thing.
2019 Open European Championships Thread
Re-watch Skyfall and you'll find the reference.

To be fair Andrew, no partnership since Pierre Ghestem was in short pants has ever played a long event and not had a Ghestem accident. It's a design feature of the convention itself.
A simple proposal to improve the game while earning clubs/directors extra income
Let me just say a lot of people mocked Zuck when he set up The Facebook. And who's laughing now smart people?
Fantasy Bracket not saved
I abstained as I wasn't sure if you were the only one.
