USA Wins World Youth Teams
I'm a U.S. citizen who has lived in Japan since 1984 and I've been a Board member of the Japan Contract Bridge League since 1990, so I have somewhat divided loyalties. Anyway, my congratulations to the U.S. team on their victory, but I also think it ...

Bob Heller: ACBL Distict 7 March-April News
At the bottom of p.33 of Bob Heller's report: "The CDR, or Code of Disciplinary Regulations, is undergoing an overhaul this spring. A progress report was to be made in Kansas City, and a final version could be ready for approval as early as this summer in Toronto ...

Time for a rethink
I'm saying that if you're really serious about wanting to get ferts accepted in major events you should organize some demonstration matches (anti-ferters vs ferters) on BBO, to show how serious the problems of defending against ferts really are (or aren't). What part of that don't ...
