ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
New, simple, more accurate rating system.
Take a look at the English National Grading Scheme If you look at the top players you will see it is a pretty good ...
Keep Bidding Cards on the Table until the Opening Lead Is Made?
In England (other parts of the UK may differ) the regulations state "At the end of the auction the calls should remain in place until the opening lead has been faced and all explanations have been obtained, after which they should be returned to their boxes. If the hand is ...
What would be comparable?
Most people above have got the subset provision of Law 23A2 the wrong way round. It is the replacement call which must define a subset of the hands covered by the 2 bid. So for example a penalty double which might be made purely on high cards including AQ ...
Is Bridge a Sport?
What will our American cousins make of this thread when they wake up? I suspect that the argument over VAT on Jaffa Cakes was proportionately less important to United Biscuits than that over VAT on competition entries was to the EBU. So perhaps it was worth pursuing the argument that ...

The demise of "whether"
John, I think you will find there is an ocean of difference between the way you use 'insure' and the way most of the posters on this site do.
Format for National Team Trials
In England teams in the past have often been selected by committee and recent trials formats have not been without controversy but it seems we are now committed to trials. From the latest draft minutes of the EBU Selection Committee here is the current position. EBU TRIALS 2019-2020 The EBU ...
Post 18. Mr. Harold Thorne and his “Bridge In 20 Minutes” little book. Monday 3rd September.
Phillips appears to have written in the 'News Chronicle' on bridge as 'Ninespot' and on other subjects as 'Dogberry' as well as writing the anonymous leading articles. So he was no stranger to the use of pseudonyms but I have no evidence about 'Petronius'
