Response to comments of John Vos on "parochialism" of Bridge Winners and the U.S.
Ah David, Chesterton got it wrong. The problem is not that we'll never be English (God forbid!)*, but that you'll ALWAYS be "French". Is Harold the most hated historical figure in England? * Just kidding ;-)
Response to comments of John Vos on "parochialism" of Bridge Winners and the U.S.
Well "ungrateful cheese-eating surrender monkeys", "freedom fries" and all that sort of BS...That's just childish blabbering one can easily get over. But pouring "Grands Crus" down gutters, THAT is UNFORGIVABLE :D

I'm a Grabosaurus Totalus and I love the "schplock" of a high level bid resounding upon the table. Behind screens, of course, I become a Pickonodon vulgaris.

Haha This guy is to chutzpah what Yoda is to the Force ^^
Cedric Lorenzini Claims 2015 Player of the Year Title
Be careful Cameron, "bien fait" means "you had it coming" ;-) I remember the first time I saw this very serious chubby-cheeked (!) little (!) fellow at our (or rather at his, since he preceded me there) club, some seventeen years ago. Who could have known he'd become a star of such ...
Fibonacci Scoring
Most people are all for equity... At the stock exchange, that is
Zero Tolerance for Bad Behavior?
"You can't jaywalk, we can't carry guns" Yellow card to Mr. Grant for "low blow" :D
