Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Isn't the score for USA-2 vs. Denmark in the d'Orsi wrong?
I have been the operator and found at trick eight that I entered the wrong card at trick three and the whole play makes no sense at that point. So tempo of play does not imply for sure that there was no error.
Meckwell leaving NICKELL
This is clearly an error --- my guess is that Norman Bach had a wife who played under the name Mrs. Norman Bach (not unusual in those days to write names like this) and maybe they partnered in the open series in 1968 which meant that there was an extra "Bach ...

Zimmerman Reinstated as Winners of Rosenblum Cup 2018
Does anyone else find the last sentence rather eerie: Team Zimmerman ... acknowledges the importance of keeping all drugs out of sport and the necessary work undertaken by the World Anti-Doping Agency in this regard.
World Team Championships in China
Earlier for the first match would be good for the Western Hemisphere fans for which that is the only match they can watch.
World Team Championships in China
And it is really not that dismal.
Slap in the Face
Given that we now know the kinds of signaling Fisher-Schwartz were using, I think there is a good chance we could make a strong legal case to justify finding them guilty of cheating in this tournament. I think it would be very difficult to do something without knowledge of signaling ...
