Post 18. Mr. Harold Thorne and his “Bridge In 20 Minutes” little book. Monday 3rd September.
Phillips appears to have written in the 'News Chronicle' on bridge as 'Ninespot' and on other subjects as 'Dogberry' as well as writing the anonymous leading articles. So he was no stranger to the use of pseudonyms but I have no evidence about 'Petronius'
Post 18. Mr. Harold Thorne and his “Bridge In 20 Minutes” little book. Monday 3rd September.
My earliest copy of 'Contract Bridge in 20 minutes' gives the following dates for the early editions: 1st Dec 1930 2nd Jan 1931 3rd Feb 1931 4th Apr 1931 5th Aug 1931 6th Nov 1931 7th Nov 1931 8th Feb 1932 9th Feb 1932 It also carries an advertisement for ...
Director, please!
DB your complete sentence was 'I don't need no stinking regulation, Andy.' Andy Bowles referred to White Book 1.4.5.2. Minute 5.2 of the Laws and Ethics Committee meeting of 27/05/15 suggests that you were to write this paragraph of the White Book. Perhaps ...

On the version of Funbridge on my phone and on my PC there are icons at the bottom of the screen. The rightmost of these is like an old TV set and this takes you to Vugraph.
How would you rule?
Firstly we need to determine what the North/South agreements are. If the correct explanation is 'no agreement' then there has been misinformation and the TD may award an adjusted score if the non-offending side has been damaged. However there is also unauthorised information as North knows how South has ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Ed. Of course according to George Orwell 'Airstrip One' is part of Oceania not Eurasia
Who's Responsible
If the event is using pre-dealt boards the hand records can be loaded into the bridgemate control program and the bridgemates set to check that the opening lead card is actually in the hand making the opening lead. If it is not the bridgemate does not accept the score and ...
Ivey V Genting (the Supreme Court case in 2017, in England)
This is not a surprise. There is also a BW thread after the appeal. https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/phil-ivey-loses-his-appeal/ If you read my post there (repeated below for convenience) you will see that Phil Ivey was unlucky. It appears that he was allowed to waste his money on an ...
What should the selectors do?
An even more positive person might mention that they lost in the semi-final by 1 IMP, that the England Women's team regularly make the final of the Venice Cup and that England is one of only 3 countries to win the d'Orsi World Seniors
