The Burgay Tape
I’m with Michael. These events happened nearly fifty years ago; Reece and Schapiro more than that. The dramatis personae are dead and cannot explain themselves or answer accusations. Nothing more can be revealed - only more speculation which, as Norman Selway pointed out in a different thread, may be based ...
The price of headaches is, he said...
So if, say, Ritalin or some other prescription drug is considered to significantly enhance concentration but not demonstrably harmful, I should have to take it if I want to compete fairly with some other competitors? That’s the end of my interest in competitive bridge.
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
But, Andrew, Mr H is not a pickpocket, nor has he broken into anyone’s vehicle. He appears rather lazily to have used some public forum content without attribution. In doing so, he was not trying to establish his reputation as an insightful film critic; he was not trying to ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
I also agree with much of this. Mr Horton does have a case to answer. But the venom expressed by some contributors shows why BW is absolutely the wrong forum. Contrary to the colourful language used by some, Mr Horton has not committed a crime and should not be pilloried ...
14(53) in a Precision context: An Idea, looking for feedback
I also play 2C as 5c+4M, with transfer responses. It can be a bit agricultural but we have had few disasters. The upside is much greater accuracy in 1D auctions which are now either balanced or at least 4 diamonds. That helps a lot in competitive auctions. As with ...
UI, How would you rule?
If my opponents were experts, I might call the Director (but probably wouldn't). But they are clearly not experts if they have no machinery other than pass or 6H. And I can't see what North has learned that has helped (indeed, if the implication is that partner has ...
Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
That doesn't seem to be the premise of the original question. If you ask me what is the minimum for a strong and artificial 2C opening, my answer (in my view) holds. If the question is about Benji Acol, that is a different question. Which the L&E Committee ...
Regulation of Strong 2C opening bid
Isn't it simple? 2C is a hand where I want to force to game unless I have a balanced hand? That is my judgement, not that of the L&E Committee. Guess I'm missing something (my partner often thinks it's a brain)
First book written by a lady
It's really simple. Two bob - or a florin - was the equivalent of half a crown, less a tanner : or two threepenny bits. It was also equal to 24 pennies or 48 farthings. Another way of looking at it is that you could take your bird to the pictures on ...
A bidding poll with a twist
I would pass. I agree that if you try to take tactical advantage of LHO's error you will be able to defend your position as ethical. It just isn't the way I play bridge.
