Absolutely brilliant performance. No-one can say you did it the easy way - Pepsi, Lavazza then Nickell. Thoroughly deserved and thrilling to watch. Well done!

James. Regardless of the rest of this post, I take huge exception to the comment that a team which I proudly captained in that Bermuda Bowl “fell apart”. Simply put this is garbage. Do you have any basis for this other than we lost a very tight match in pretty difficult circumstances? It would be nice if you withdrew that particular remark as it is wholly unfounded in my opinion.

100% Behind this. Who in their right mind wants anything other than the game we know and love being safeguarded and kept clean. We mustn't let all the hard work people have done go to waste.

Unless it's a big match.. Then Zlatan could be contested by a grasshopper.

Well it is pretty decent no? On a trump lead it is cold if trumps 2-2. If they are 3-1 depending which hand shows out you might still be able to safely navigate two dimond ruffs. If you can't, then you need diamonds 3-3 or a H hook with some info available about which way to hook. Sounds pretty good.

I had a good rule in an occasional partnership with a top notch player - which was that splinters by responder denied a 5S response to RKCB… So couldn't have 2 keys and trump Q OR 3/4 keys. Perhaps this means things we had to Jacoby with hands like hand 1 here - but at least we had a guide in place.

There are nine stanzas of 12 in each round robin - so we play 4-5-5-4 in that order over 4 days hence one session of 36 today and tomorrow (the 5 stanza days)

I have to agree - not knowing the exact schedule when the event is less than a year away doesn't make sense to me - people have to make flight reservations, hotel bookings and organise teams and partners - It really is surprising there isn't a cut off for schedule to be published at least 12 months in advance of such a major event.

Why can you afford two losers unless I am missing something? Doesn't two losers in spades mean we need to find the club 10 to ditch the hearts? Spose there is a possible H/C aqueeze too but…

I've abstained because I want to bid 2D, which in my view should be like 2D over a drury type 2C bid - so saying I am not ashamed of my overcall and game is a possibility. If partner bids 2H I will let it go.

I am afraid the assumption that “pairs sitting the same way would be immediately discovered” by BBO coverage is incorrect. In 2010 England and Sweden sat the same way in a European Championships - wearing team uniform and on BBO and nothing was discovered until scoring up. Not that I am disagreeing with trying to make the final stages of the Gold Cup a more celebrated and watched affair.

To be honest I don;t even agree it's unlikely. Can give plenty of hands for 3S to produce a cold or with the odds slam. Of course can produce some hands which will bid a poor or even no play slam too…

I'm not arguing that point, interested to see what people said. Only arguing with your comment that you can't imagine a slam opposite an overcall!

Don't mind 4c being described as an overbid but if you can't imagine a slam oppsosite an overcall you haven't a very vivid imagination. Give partner AJXXXX KXX Void AXXX. Slam is a total claim and grand is probably with the odds on the auction!!
