The cost of a bridge game
As it happens I am working on the history of the club at the moment, now in its 48th year. Berwick-upon-Tweed is indeed in England: Scotland is about one mile north or five miles west of the town. The club was formed by members of the local Round Table and ...
The cost of a bridge game
An evening at the Berwick-upon-Tweed club cost £2 for members and visitors. This includes unlimited tea and coffee if you can be bothered to get up and make it. Annual membership is £1, although you also have to join the SBU (£10) although not necessarily through the club. The club ...
What should the selectors do?
Abi is a fine young player who won the Lady Milne this year. Her partner was not available for the Europeans otherwise they would have been selected, but she was selected for the Open team following another trial with a different partner. I expect Abi and her partner have no ...
What should the selectors do?
If it were so certain that any pair would enhance a team, then you'd expect the selectors to have pre-selected them (or an entire team) rather than run a trial. As they did for Robson and Forrester in the Open team. The selectors are in their normal no-win situation ...
What should the selectors do?
The time difference will be over twelve months. I'm not sure the football analogy really works, because the footballers continue to play high quality football between qualification and the championship so their form can be judged. There is not the same week in, week out, bridge tournaments of sufficient ...
What should the selectors do?
The selectors are in their normal no-win situation and they may feel that they should not make a decision until after the AGM in November since the composition of the committee will change. It is a facet of selection in most British sports that your stock will rise when you ...
the most volatile board ever?
Surprisingly in the match where there was a 70-0 IMP whitewash, this board only accounted for a single imp.
Bidding Practice using BBO
shape(north,4441) and not hascard(north, AC) The other problem with your try was that it said "=1" when it needed "==1". The dealer scripts are extremely sensitive to correct syntax and only give one error whenever there is an issue. But it is very powerful which is why ...
Bidding Practice using BBO
The correct format is: shape(north,4441) && loser(north, clubs)==1
GF relays in Transfer Walsh
We play a fairly precise shape relay after 1-1NT and 1-1NT and a precise one after 1-1-1. We cannot get a precise relay in after 1-1NT because we want to distinguish range as well, which is probably why Welland-Auken use 1-1 as ...
