Matt Smith Promotion
Congratulations Matt, very well deserved.
Ivey (Appellant) v Genting Casinos (UK) Ltd t/a Crockfords (Respondents)
Jim, "The casino has no right to force me to play. And, reciprocally, I have no right to force them to play." Sounds like a slippery slope ... Should the ability to selectively choose your own customers also be available to restaurants, buses, country clubs?
Montecatini
I agree with David Gold. I was in Opatija in 2014, and had an amazing time. The weather was great, we were next to the sea, the food choices were numerous, excellent, and inexpensive (try finding that trio in many places) and the people very kind and had a genuine ...
New Monaco Pair
I agree the Vanderbilt and Spingold have the most teams with 4 or 5 great players, but I'm not sure that makes them the toughest events. I think some may overestimate the chances of beating a team comprised of (let's say) the 4 best players from countries like ...
Montecatini

Montecatini
Paul, I totally understand your displeasure with Montecatini, and pretty much everyone agrees - I also really appreciate the way you included some humor in your evaluation, it made for fun reading. Okay, the playing conditions were lousy, maybe it would have been better if they been able to stick with ...
Playing conditions in Montecatini
I had a great time in Montecatini. People travel from all over the world to visit Tuscany, and for good reason. It has amazing (okay, not at the venue) natural beauty, very nice (yes, it was a little too warm) weather, and fabulous (sadly, not at the playing site) food ...
True North American Championships Coming
Don't sorry about the USBF, they have Marty to make it great again.
