Master Points for Foreign Players

Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
It is quite clear I mistakenly asked for the English Bridge Union to say something official when my request should have been of the European Bridge League. I apologize for agitating in the wrong place, and renew my request for comment of the latter bridge organization.
