A Bridge Swifty
"Looks like you, my RHO, won that trick" said Tom leadingly. "The rest are mine... oh wait, just kidding!" Tom exclaimed.

I find this one more suitable for the comment "We should not have been in no Trump". :)
Meckwell leaving NICKELL
Even before the Monaco experiment many people play for a country different than where they started. Lots of people playing for the US that aren't originally from the US or at least first played for other countries (Canada, Pakistan, Israel, etc.). There is a list at https://en.wikipedia ...

The swiss did have hand records for at least some teams for some rounds if you were in the top ~12 teams or so. It would be better IMHO if every team had hand records (which is true for day 2 in the Sacremento championship Swiss, as well as for ...
How should Multi be allowed (if at all) under the Open+ chart?
I'm not that surprised that the vote is so strongly in favor of allowing it, as that seems a no-brainer at the level of fairly serious bridge (which OPEN+ clearly is). The two levels that may get less of a near-universal view here IMO are: What about OPEN (no ...
