My mind was thinking Fred all this time, but it is Frank. I copied verbatim from the magazine.

More effective than it deserves to be because players tend to overbid against it?

Geez….I didn't see you at the game :). We ended up minus 200 in three no trump. We concluded things can happen, but this is an acceptable overcall. You said it perfectly Randy

I intended the question to be whether this was a 2 spade bid, however the methods conveyed that.

I wonder if the term ‘bash’ is unfortunate? I've heard experts explain that they can't find a specific piece of information in a particular auction, but can visualize so many hands partner could have to make slam they ‘bash’.

….Yes, the opps might not lead a spade. A few panalists made that point.

I had to look up Godwin's Law. I never heard of it, but I was startled by your post. Maybe this is a corolary?… being startled by unintended Godwin.

This whole ‘enable the best players to play full time and get really good’ argument sounds so 20th century to me. Like the Berlin games in ‘36. Let’s showcase zee superiority of zee American system!

Jonathan?

You have a strange filter in your head. Debate about sponsorship reminds you of Nazis? People sympathetic about sponsorship reminds you of Hitler?

Hi Nick,

“This is about greed, not survival. It's about ego, not philanthropy.”

I know I'm parsing, but I don't understand the greed part of your comment. Do you mean greedy by taking a bridge accomplishment from someone else? I don't think there is a moral component inherent in sponsorship. Sounds like the sentiment is that sponsorship is legal, but unethical?

If a “rich guy” funded a beautiful symphony I would love it. Is that a bad thing?

His hesitation was “thinking” he was off two keys. After the auction he slapped his forehead and shook his head. I think it was just one of those bridge brain freeze moments that happened at an unusual time. The player is good.

It seems that North had brain lock similar to miscounting trumps? He had J10x KQ10 A8752 J4
