March 11 Statement from ACBL (hidden in news feed)
Thing is, whenever someone repeatedly says "it's not about the money"... ...it's almost always about the money.
Has Panic & Fear Overwhelmed Us? Far worse than COVID-19
Thanks for your post and comments in various threads Jonathan. Your facts are pertinent and your opinions are well-reasoned. (Now can you do something about the Canadian Peso so our travel to US-based events is more economical?)
Simple Approach
"North's 3♦ call, showing a limit raise, is clear. North doesn't want to punish South for opening light." North needs something in his arsenal that says "giddy-up if you have something decent". North is already a passed hand, so South won't expect too much, but South has ...

The notorious doctors
MR: "In team sports, it is accepted practice to try to 'get away' with stuff. In bridge, it is not." In some team sports. Perhaps many/most. In curling it is most certainly not accepted practice.

Next week: Those characters weren't actually cheating... it was their Evil Twins.
