Gatlinburg regional (4/20-26/2020) is NOT cancelled
I hope you are right, but the experts are predicting that the epidemic will not be contained that soon.
Gatlinburg regional (4/20-26/2020) is NOT cancelled
I would add "...yet" to the headline.
The Impossible Transfer
In Washington Standard (Steve Robinson, 1996), advancer transfers with one of two radically different hand types: a weak hand that wants to play in opener's suit, or a GF one-suiter with shortness in opener's suit. Because of the first possibility, overcaller must accept the transfer. After that, if ...
Colour Coded Playing Cards
I can well believe it. My late father once picked up a 4-3-2-4 17-count and opened 1NT. After partner bid Stayman, and then 3NT after 2S, he looked more closely at his hand and realized that his diamonds were actually hearts. So he bid 6H, surprising everyone at the table ...

Nice article about chess cheater
According to the accounts I've read, Bloodgood didn't really "rig" the tournaments. The rating inflation was an inevitable consequence of the flaws in the rating system concentrated by a closed pool of players. Bloodgood also held the record for the most simultaneous games of correspondence chess. When he ...
Danger Hand First
Bottom of page 4: you have South winning the Ace of diamonds, but he already played it on the first trick.
I would put this as a bidding quiz but . . .
If you are "ethical" and bid 3NT, will West be "ethical" and avoid leading a spade, which may be the only lead to set the contract? I agree with Richard that pass is the right call.
