Why does Harvard hate bridge?
Some years ago a university student who tried to start up a student bridge club at University of New South Wales ran into similar bureaucratic problems, including demands for large funds before the club could be registered. She gave up. Alas the only other student bridge club at a university ...
Open Orlando Discussion Thread
David - page 2 of the Daily Bulletin http://championships.worldbridge.org/orlandows18-files/bulletins/Bul_01.pdf. Seeded 90 out of 97 is a good Aussie pair with good form in events like the Asia Cup and Yeh Cup this year, though they would have few if any WBF Masterpoints. In Sanya ...

Which week is first - the Open (as in Orlando) or the Mixed (as in previous European Open events)?
Am I qualified for anything?
You can play in the Reisinger. Anyone can. A few years ago, one of the teams in the Reisinger scored closer to zero than average. We were lucky to be one of the teams who played them on Day One before they were eliminated. You have nine credits which allow ...
Club UI problem
My partner (South) passed out 4S in the above auction. We came 2nd NS of the 25 tables. Four Easts played in 4S, and only five tables played in contracts at the five level. 13 tables played in 4H or 4Hx and the records say three Wests played in 4S ...
