about me

Is Bridge a sport ? The F-N case.
If bridge is a sport, that makes bridge players athletes. Take a look around the room at a bridge tournament. QED.

An Absurd ACBL Procedure
I agree the procedure is silly. But of all the issues with the ACBL to worry about ... Feels like worrying about that ugly paint color we've been meaning to change while the house is on fire.
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
