The wealthy man Mark played with was Seymour Leibowitz—quite a character.

Congrats Eddie-nice to see a sure first time Hall of Famer make it in. The funniest thing I ever saw at the bridge table was when you were playing with this 103 year old woman at the Southeasterns in Florida with her 75 year old son watching. Of course you somehow won the KOs with her but do you remember the hand she lead the 4 of hearts during the bidding? Please tell the story-I promise I will laugh at loud again.

I would like to enlighten people out there who know you only as a tightly strung, fiercely competitive person at the bridge table that I am lucky enough to be a close friend and have seen first hand what a devoted son, brother, uncle, husband and father to Atlas you are. You are especially kind to friends in need. Go back a short time when Joe Boo was thin and dressing like he was out of GQ magazine, it was Geoff's closet that he always went wandering. Although you have been one of the top players in the world for over 20 years now your recent dominance has been offensive. So my question is….WTF are you doing differently? Is there some new enhancer out there I don't know about? Give!

Yu, I have always appreciated much of what you have to say and I couldn't agree with you more when it comes to executive suites, booze, and shrimp cocktails over the top for our ACBL big wigs. But Mr. Hartman's salary—well that is just a low blow aimed at a very qualified man who seems to be trying really hard to clean up the mess he has inherited.

Was it Mark Twain that said “when you sell your soul to the devil he comes to collect?”

Obviously there has been no one more deserving of this award in our lifetime. Boye's deportment at the table is beyond reproach. His courage and commitment to our game in the last 6 months have been invaluable in present times and will have a tremendous effect going forward. Whether O.J. Fisher and the likes are convicted of their crimes or not the playing field has been leveled. Congratulations Boye, and thank you.

the beauty of reverse flannery is how much it defines other bids when you can rule out the hand types needed to make a reverse flannery response-although always right siding spades and sometime right siding hearts is also a huge benefit along with playing 4h instead of 2m when you are 5+-4 in majors and partner opens and rebids his minor and you dont have enough to bid on. its the same thing with playing flannery–its not the actual flannery auctions that are so great but the inferences you have when your partner bids 1s over 1h, or when your partner opens 1h and you can assume he doesnt have 4 spades unless he has reverse values. Also bidding 1nt/1h gets you a spade lead into your 4 card suit sometimes, along with bidding 1nt with 4 spades allows you to next bid “impossible” 2s to show other hand types. You are often so much better placed in competitive auctions when you know partners spade holding is limited. I can see why Reese hated flannery so much–lets just say he didn't neeeed it….

Weinstein lost his 8th cavendish win on the last board when the Germans had this auction and played their 3-1 against Woolsey- Stewart who now won the event…

The rules of bridge must eventually change so that active ethics is practiced to a higher degree. For example, let's assume an egregious bid is made on Ui ( forget this hand, it doesn't qualify) should the bid just be taken away? I don't think so ,further penalty must be considered, so that free rolling with Ui will not be encouraged anymore.

Look at covers of acbl bulletins. Do the opposite. Look at efforts by acbl to get young people into bridge. Do the opposite. Just like learning bridge, the negative inference can be a powerful learning tool.

I would just like to say that Alfredo Versace for me is the most beautiful, natural player and bidder in the world. I have felt this way for many years. Although Steve and I usually lose to Alfredo and Don Lorenzo I can also say there has never been a moment in many, many boards where they haven't been anything but 100000% honest.

Between this and the ronconno moronic post it almost makes you want to reconsider our rights to freedom of speech. Then I read Tom Hanlon's line-“see you at the table lads” and I laughed so hard I'm almost happy I wasted 10 minutes reading this trash.
