The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Very good, so here are a couple of questions about methodology. Why should what is or is not written in a book be a comprehensive or even an authoritative description of the actual agreements that world-class players play at high-level tournaments, such as the Bermuda Bowl? More specifically, why should ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
I see that Mr. Wilsmore does not loose his propensity for highly selective quoting that distorts the original meaning of the quoted text, even after having been called out on it. He posted this very quote earlier in this thread, so I'll repost what Mr. Guthrie wrote in its ...
The most popular card game in Italy
[i] Giorgio, I didn‘t say anything about cheating above.[/i] Yes, you did. When you wrote "My impression is that infringements of the law of bridge in Italy are being treated like fine notices for wrong parking." you were clearly implying that the cases you were referring to were ...
The most popular card game in Italy
Nedju, you certainly did the right thing to find out how disciplinary proceedings are handled by the FIGB by going directly to the source. However, you unwittingly (and through no fault of your own) provided a perfect illustration of the saying that a little knowledge (of Italian, in this case ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
[i]This is correct. Note that the example hands all provide a sound fit at the three level, no matter what. And, with the hand given, 108743 A103 76 A85 which “game-level contract” might you play, if partner has short spades? Unlike the sample hands supplied ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
That's curious, Mr' Wilsmore's book on the Roman Club System must be missing a page. Mine (1976 Italian edition) does in fact state that with a weak hand (less than 10 pts over a 2 opening) responder should bid as Mr. Wilsmore indicated a few comments above ...
Why does Harvard hate bridge?
The CoC for the upcoming Bridge Bowl haven't been published yet, but in past Bridge Bowls combined teams were not allowed. However, as far as I know there's no requirement that the competing teams should belong to an officially recognized student organization. The Harvard Bridge Club could enter ...
How to play 1 minor 1 heart 1 spade?
Finn, you may also want to take a look at to see various opinions on this topic.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
So first you state that I fail to account for Italy's suspension by the WBF, then, when I produce the minutes of the meeting where that suspension was decided and ask you what exactly you'd like to discuss about it, you suddenly lose interest and once again change ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Mr. Wilsmore writes: "Mr Casinovi regards reports that vanished, containing fabrications, to be evidence of exoneration, but fails to account for the WBF's suspension of Italy "on grounds that it failed to investigate thoroughly charges that its players used smoke signals to cheat in world competition." First of all ...
