What is a No-trump range?
One elderly English couple used to publish their range as 12 1/2 - 13 1/2. Some discussion ensued as to whether 1 point actually counted as a "range". The conclusion was that if it did, it wasn't much of one.
Request from book publisher: can you identify man on the right please
I have been unhelpful. I thought at first it was Wolach. Richard has asked me if it was Louis Alt and I can neither confirm nor deny as Alt was much older when I knew him. The best I could do was "could well be"and offered the name of ...

More seriously, the other events were seriously dwindling at Brighton ...
EBU Summer Meeting
The last time players were asked about earlier start times at the Summer Festival the response was in favour of the status quo. I expect, however, this to change, and from next year earlier start times to become the norm, Norm. This makes sense to me, at least, because in ...
I played in a speedball event a couple of years ago. My partner and I were perfectly capable of playing in time, and, indeed, were quite often to be found waiting for the move to be called. Now, we're both experienced players (I said "experienced", not "good") so it ...
