Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
World Championship update
Sometimes there are assigned scores. 288 is a multiple of 16 (x 18). Just guessing as to reason.
World Championship update
I've published statistics from the Vugraph data for each pair on how they defended after the opening lead. This is a good test of how well the partnership is working on defense. See http://www.detectingcheatinginbridge.com/statistics.html. Only 33 pairs had enough boards (94) to qualify for ...

I'm not sure about this one either: "I played against the King of Bridge journalism", Tom said regally.

Something like that. The point was that Helgemo didn't play as well as he normally does. However, statisticians will point out that there isn't enough data for true analysis. I'm offering you both sides of the coin.

@Daivd: Familiarity. Laziness. Don't really like them (results presentation). I generally use Tor if I know I'll be searching for things I want to avoid ads on.

@Espen: Full details of the drug(s) he was taking are posted at http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/anti-doping-violation-by-geir-helgemo-results-in-team-zimmerman-disqualification-from-orlando-rosenblum-cup/ WADA _requires_ all IFs to publish details on all failed tests.

@Greg. It is getting into semantics. Was Helgemo's test "In competition" or "during or in connection with an Event"? There are different rules. If the first, the team is automatically disqualified. If the latter, WBF has discretion. The WBF rules are at http://www.worldbridge.org/wp-content/uploads/2016 ...

Several comments, some of them long, so I will post separately. http://www.worldbridge.org/rules-regulations/anti-doping-regulations/ has the WBF anti-doping rules. They went into effect on January 1, 2015. http://www.worldbridge.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Players_guidelines.pdf has the player guidelines. According to this document, which was ...
