The History of History (Part 1)
On that particular hand, just based on point-count, it was pretty obvious for Reese to figure out that someone had psyched, and knowing Schapiro, it was also easy to guess who. Having come to that conclusion before his second call, the decisions to bid 2NT and pass 3 are ...
"Killing Eve"
Multi 2!D and Weak Twos
Quite so. I'm totally out of touch these days, so perhaps I shouldn't have said anything. But I remember hearing that this was popular with juniors 30-odd years ago. Apparently some of them are still at it even in their old age!

Traveler View - negative good will for the club?
In the polling, there was a distinct divide. The top players all preferred not to see anything. The weaker players all wanted to see everything. And there was a contingent that just wanted to see the percentages (which completely baffles me, as they are pretty much worthless for at least ...
Sportsmanlike Dumping Arises Again
While the possibility of dumping was there, because of the pre-determined brackets, guessing which to do (win or lose) is fraught this time around. The competition this time has seen favorites stumble and "weaker" teams playing very well. On paper, losing seems like a good idea, but this year you ...
