Ivey V Genting (the Supreme Court case in 2017, in England)
This is not a surprise. There is also a BW thread after the appeal. If you read my post there (repeated below for convenience) you will see that Phil Ivey was unlucky. It appears that he was allowed to waste his money on an ...
What should the selectors do?
An even more positive person might mention that they lost in the semi-final by 1 IMP, that the England Women's team regularly make the final of the Venice Cup and that England is one of only 3 countries to win the d'Orsi World Seniors
Who Will Direct the Directors?
As I think you now realise Geoff It is illegal because Law 12C1 says inter alia (b) The Director in awarding an assigned adjusted score should seek to recover as nearly as possible the probable outcome of the board had the infraction not occurred. (c) An assigned adjusted score may ...

Please, One More Time for this Theme
If your partner had alerted 3 and when asked explained it as a mixed raise and is game invitational for spades and then bid 3 would you pass if yes why would you not pass without the alert. If no why are you inviting instead of just bidding ...
Warning: Viewer Discretion
I rarely agree with Ian but the statement "some of us believe the east hand should never be passed in 3rd seat" implies that the partnership has an agreement to open that hand in 3rd seat. As Ian says in most parts of the world such an agreement is not ...
First Dupli-Swiss at ACBL club - positives and negatives
Great that you have taken this initiative Bud. As Richard says this kind of competition is much more common in England so maybe I can pass on a few tips. Swiss Teams Scorer with Bridgemates makes things even quicker and easier. Swiss Teams Scorer will do the assignments for you ...
