What does this 3!s bid mean
conventional : it is minimum with or without spade control and at least 2 keys. 3NT would be spade control, not minimum as 4C and 4D

Hi Ken, Sorry for the delay I have to read again all my archives to give you a precise response, but I have no time this week. Thanks for the article of december 1919, I did not know it. If my memory is good, the Paris well-known club is "L ...

"Contract Bridge played at the Hamilton Club, Hamilton, Canada in 1917." I dont know what was this canadian kind of Contract-Bridge. But Contract-Bridge was before the "modern" Contract Bridge of Vanderbilt, a generic word : Plafond was a contract-bridge, and before, since 1911, there was in Paris another type of Contract-Bridge ...

You are sure it is not Edward Valentine SHEPARD, not Shepherd ?
Is Bridge a sport ? The F-N case.
Sources : in other words, nothing serious, of the wind : by instance, I know 3 clubs (more than 600 members) and obviously never the players were asked ! So, yes, maybe a vast majority of the twenty-eight "Présidents de Comité" N.B.: the same who voted for giving the scandalous quitus (financial ...
Is Bridge a sport ? The F-N case.

There is no woman with these characteristics on ...
Post 11. Captain Ewart Kempson - “The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth” Monday, 18th September 2017.

Post 11. Captain Ewart Kempson - “The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth” Monday, 18th September 2017.
I know a personal family tree about Ewart (Gladstone)Kempson (I suppose that the author is a member of his family, if necessary I can verify this fact). The given dates are: Birth = in September 3rd, 1898, Kingston (source = " Civilian registration, Jamaica ") Death = in May 4th, 1966, Durham (source = probate ...
Post 4 Not returning partner’s suit. 23rd August 2017 (Last time I mixed up my “post numbers” with “Post 5”, so this is “Post 4” - used to do that quite a lot when pitching my tent in the wind).
You are right, Archibald Manuel Dunn was born in October 1863 in Newscatle upon Tyne. I made some researchs in 2012 about the Dunn Family. I know one person of his family, living in New-Zealand.
