Too Conservative or just Unlucky?—ATB?
Who's to blame? The field, I'd contend. West has an absolute max for his/her bidding, and the game is still less than 50%, East has less than no reason to bid on over 3. Drury? It really doesn't help a great deal, depends on East ...
Massimo Lanzarotti in Vanderbilt
With all due respect, the issue is not whether you Avon, or I, or Bobby Wolff or anyone else agrees with the ACBL ruling; at this point, that's immaterial. The practical problem raised, however, is very pressing -- Should players drawn against a team with Lanzarotti as a member sit ...
Massimo Lanzarotti in Vanderbilt
According to what I've just read, Lanzarotti was reinstated by the ACBL late last year, after having successfully met the conditions of admission and apology for cheating violations and subsequent "good behavior" -- in Italy, where he was reinstated some years ago. So, technically, he is fully eligible to compete ...
Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup

Beta blockers are commonly prescribed for people with cardiac problems, by slowing the pulse rate they may relieve strain on the heart muscle. Diuretics are often used to lower ...
Great Players; Great Books
Master Play and Reese's other books, with the over-my-shoulder approach, are in a different class from the others mentioned here. IMHO, Reese was the first to write not about what a bridge player does, but how he thinks. Seems to me that's more important than describing technique, as ...
Bessis and Meckstroth Win 2019 Cavendish Pairs
Kudos to the winners. The combination of the BBO vugraph and commentary, the videos and the excellent Cavendish website with running scores and comparisons available on every board in just about real time made for good Internet spectatorship. One question, though: The absence of fine American pairs was noteworthy. Even ...
Amnon Harel's lead problem: Q32 4 KQT92 8652
i don't see any discussion, did it get lost?
MANFIELD Wins Mixed Teams
Kudos
#saynotocheats
Enough of this daisy-picking. Fantunes were banned by the relevant BRIDGE authority, no matter what silly rules are passed, it's inconceivable that an outside court LACKING EXPERTISE can overturn such a verdict on the basis of bridge. Were the sports court's ruling to be based on a procedural ...
10 card Solid or almost solid suits.
I don't recall ever having a 10-bagger. If I had, with my luck it probably would be JT98765432
