David B: I am amazed at the apparent assumption that ANY bw member would not instantly recognise the word!

Field protection is my biggest hate in the game. When I see a “field protector” call the TD cos he got a great board from a misunderstanding by the opps, and he wants the field protected from his good fortune,I will cure cancer, solve the christian/moslem misfit and finally please my wife. Yeah, right

I was in the habit of saying after pards hesitated “I acknowledge the hesitation” before bidding or passing. Then it occurred to me that, against less experienced players, this could easily be an “intimidatory” action - I'm more experienced than you and I think it's right to take whatever action (or inaction) I now take. Consequently, I now do the above against experienced players but against less experienced I wait for the end of the hand and suggest that they might like to consider calling the director to check on our actions,

why only 2 system alternatives? there are others. one at least i would prefer to the offered alternatives. Personally, I wouldn't play 2 over 1 to win a bet

Because I wanted to know if others shared my opinion or if i had it completely wrong. the pair we played against had no interest in discussing anything about the hand - east was too angry and west was too defensive.

The original quote comes from Virgil book2 of the Aeneid writing about the greeks and trojans

I'm still anxiously awaiting a “convention disruption” freak to call the sheriff because his pair got a good result from a system forget. When it happens, I'll shout “hallelujah”, immediately become a better bridge player than ******* (insert your own hero), cure cancer and establish the GTOE, while simultaneously walking from NZ to Australia.

IMHO DB is one of the most reasoned posters on this site. I believe he is ABSOLUTELY right on this occasion. He stuffed up and takes his beans - yes, that's how I want to play the game and Mike Ma adds the correct colophon

barry m : many thanks - that's done it. As a longtime windows guy, just pushed into mac by a zealot son, i had no idea about hiding scroll bars

Liam M - that is without doubt one of the least outlandish things i've ever read on this site

for god's sake, multi is not an ogre. i play in a VERY ordinary standard session every week. there are at least 3 common multi options. written defences are not allowed and players who have never won a tournament (session) happily cope. The multi ogre is a myth

bridge is a game played against people. reading people is a big part of the game. lets play on tablets and then, guess what, we can do away with the people altogether

Michael, I really think that you need to put this to bed. I' m 100% certain that your comment was 100% out of line - therefore your opps reaction is irrelevant - it's your comment that caused the problem. Through most of the earlier thread, you seemed to be defending. Although this thread is ostensibly an apology, it doesn't feel like one to me. I am happy to accept that you had no bad intent but ugly is in the eye of the beholder - in this case, your opps eye.

Dead god, I wish I was a one eyes chauvanist

The OP staes clearly that it was the actual agreement. Why would you question that? It's not exactly ambiguous. . I realise that DB has a very strong view about misexplanations/misbids but there's got to be a point where we actually accept the conditions specified.

i never saw bradman but i did watch weekes, tendulkar, aamed, richards compton, and for me, the best i have ever seen was peter may. my father, who played first class, always placed hobbs above bradman but i suspect that was more chauvinism than reality. by any measure - note measure - bradman is the most outstanding sportsman of all time in any sport - just by the metrics
