The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
I do have the ability to analyze the hands using Bridgescore+. It is able to cover all the hands, not just some. There is some data from 1955 onwards, see http://www.sarantakos.com/bridge/vugraph/ There is data missing from some early WC. If anyone has access to the ...

@Judy. You stated, "BUT RATHER with THE WORLD BRIDGE FEDERATION who has protected their Italian brethren for over six decades!" But when Bobby was President of the WBF nothing happened with anything with the Italian Blue Team. Why criticise the current WBF when your husband was President of the same ...
NABCs
But.. Jan... I thought they gave you those nice WBF shirts! I agree with everything you say; but my point remains the same. ACBL members have come to expect certain things at NABCs. At NABCs, local volunteers organise the food/entertainment. The ACBL gives the local committee $x per table ...

Wasn't Bobby President of the WBF from 1992-1994?
NABCs
$1,600 for 9 days of bridge. Cheaper than NABC events on a per day basis. Assuming you make it to the final... quite expensive if you don't make it to the last 64 and have only played for 2 days. The WBF model is you pay for the ...
NABCs
The WBF just ran an event in Orlando. No local volunteers (that I am aware of). You don't necessarily need volunteers to run a bridge event. You may be used to them; but that doesn't mean you need them.
What It Was Like Negotiating Hotel Rooms On Behalf Of The ACBL
I have offered ACBL to run Bridgescore+ at Hawaii for the NABC to run Swiss events. Still waiting to hear back from them.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
1962 Bermuda Bowl. Session 1 (1a). Board 8. Mathe-Von Der Porten bid to 6 on their 10-0 heart suit. 7 makes. At the other table Chiaradia-D'Alelio also bid to 6 but Nail makes a good sacrifice of 6. Session 3 (1c). Board 37. Belladonna-Averelli stop ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
1959 Bermuda Bowl. Segment 9. Board 152. Belladonna-Averelli and Fry-Lazard stopped in game. 7NT, 7 and 7 all make. Requires the doubleton Qx of diamonds and the king of spade finesse. Not likely to bid 7.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
AW wrote " MH: …US pairs were routinely outbid on slam hands. False. " Not quite true. MH's full sentence was: "However, to my mind there is at least one huge reason why the US started to beat the BT. Moyse had long complained, in WC write-ups, about the go as ...
