Where did you learn to play bridge?
45 years ago ... with a few school's friends we used to play stupid card games. One of us found a bridge book in a library and said to the other ones : "hey, looks nice ..." and we tried to learn between us (you can imagine what it was !!). Few weeks ...
Fantunes - EBL and WBF ranking
The link goes to the "youth" classification. For open :
Playing conditions in Montecatini
See the "official" statement of the EBL's president : "... After an enquiry from the audience, Yves Aubry discussed the venue issue in Montecatini. The first venue was not large enough, the second did not have the required insurance permits...." That was in this daily bulletin (page 4) : :http://championships.eurobridge ...

Looking for 1975 Bowl, R1, bd 3, France vs Italy
Most bulletins can be found at : A very nice database
Do You Claim?
Have you ever heard about what Gazzilli means ?
Freeing Up bidding Restrictions in International Tournaments
Just one idea, from my own experience : If I were to be preoccupied to sit and play against a pair playing a very exotic system, it would not be for the obligation to elaborate myself a defensive system, but for the fact that opponents can't (even in writing) explain ...
1974, Screens and the French team
The 1974 Bermuda Bowl has played in Venice. 1975 was in Bermuda and Vial-Leenhardt were also playing for the french team (after their victory in the Tel-Aviv European championship in 1974) This being said, it happened that I had the opportunity to ask your question this afternoon to Michel Lebel ...
