"I have no friends in Formula 1, I have never driven in a competitive race; yet I would have Lewis Hamilton on my team and so would you." But you see, I wouldn't. I'd have Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso. They'd be driving the Mercedes works cars ...
Say No To Cheats
Hi Frank, You write in conclusion: "What exactly is achieved by having many people signing a document like this?" I'm not sure. Maybe nothing. But I don't think it can hurt. If it's a step forward, even the tiniest of steps, it might help.
Say No To Cheats
Hi Richard, You write in part "However, the players want someone else - in this case the tournament organizers - to bear the costs of the inevitable lawsuits." Which 'inevitable lawsuits' are these?

3NT - perhaps this is where Jim is heading
Undiscussed with my regular partner, but in a pick-up situation I would expect it to be to play.
Brigitta Fischer's bidding problem: Kxx KQ Q AKQ9xxx
Playing 2/1, I'm very much in the minority here opening 2. Can't say I mind. If partner has 13 cards I think I want to be in 3NT or 5 more often than not, and the strong opener should keep opponents out. If partner is ...
