R.I.P. Milt Rosenberg
Caravelli passed away several years ago, but at one time he was a regular partner of Milt's. Milt stopped playing with him when an incident (or two) occurred which gave Milt and many others strong reason to believe Caravelli was euphemistically "ethically challenged". Milt's playing with Gerald evokes ...
R.I.P. Milt Rosenberg
I am assuming he knew Bob Price, probably Chester as well, but no idea whether he knew of Gloria or others. Though I spent 70-71 at the U of Chicago as a freshman and remember some of these people from playing at the Shoreham Hotel just off campus, I didn ...
R.I.P. Milt Rosenberg
I don't believe Peter Nagy was part of that group and not sure about Bobby.
Senior Conditions of Contest Approval VOTE
Adam essentially makes the point I have tried to make for several years -- apparently ineffectively . We preferably should not be using any senior performances from the trials or from the now extinct Baze KO. I still remain convinced that unless we use something like mean seeding points per Senior event ...
Easiest GCOC change (I hope)
The extreme case of this issue arose 10 years ago in the trials. Declarer, an unnamed top technician, is playing in 6N, 12 top tricks, with no realistic play for the overtrick. The defense (Garner and I) took 5-10 minutes defending, trying to beat the hand. In another match, they ...
Easiest GCOC change (I hope)
My serious issue is when the opponents cause our side to waste our time (or vice versa). When declarer is playing out for an overtrick, or could/should be claiming, the defense will often reasonably take a lot of time -- but IMO this time should be allocated to the declaring ...
Who Goes There?
sorry - asked stupid question and deleted
What Methods should Require Advance Submission Forms & Written Defenses?
I personally have enough trouble trying to remember my own system. Trying to go through say 60 pairs ASFs or SSFs, some of which may actually have things worth addressing in advance, then having to remember those defenses ahead of time when the chances of actually playing that pair in ...
What Methods should Require Advance Submission Forms & Written Defenses?
I haven't run into this issue behind screens, possibly because I have never played anything in decades where the opponents would use written defenses, and I have never been aware of partner consulting notes -- possibly because partner is quite quiet or perhaps because I am hearing challenged and oblivious ...
What Methods should Require Advance Submission Forms & Written Defenses?
Aren't all matches, even the RR ones, behind screens? If the opponents playing the convention have provided each opponent with a written defense, there should ideally be no source of UI. If an opponent is carelessly making sounds audible to the other side of the screen from handling the ...
