On Thursday 9 April 2020 there is an English & Hebrew event. More are being planned. I made a typo when posting.

regarding the channel:

There are 5 videos there now, soon to be 6 (a French one will be added).

Next week there are at least 2 events - timing to be arranged.

Michael: most of the commentators want people to ask more questions. When David Gold did the pilot, it was really great that so many spoke, and they were good questions. I can change a setting to mute on login, then ask people to unmute when they talk (then remute … wait, did I just make up a word?)

The dialogue aspect of it adds something. Every time we are improving things and I am sure when we have done the 5th one most of the tiny issues will be eliminated.

Remember all of this is put together with free tools, so we are making the most of them. It is good to have feedback so I encourage you (and others) to write to me.

I have had 30+ emails from people saying they had a great time watching live.

Also, in tonight's Dutch room, I am relying on the specs as I am not sure I know one word of Dutch.

Martin, for the first one, please look here
https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/over-my-shoulder-commentary-by-zach-grossack/
the later ones will be on that same YouTube channel, so you may wish to subscribe. It takes me about 2.5 hours per video to edit, process, upload onto YouTube, so today's event may not be posted till Wednesday.

I have watched the team at every stage. I predict some successful careers as pro quizzers. They are a highly entertaining team to watch.

I think we had about 45 online today, so thank you very much to the specs. The real time questions and the comments made it interesting. Zach was a brilliant commentator, and we think the format works really well. More of these events in the coming days.

Comments and suggestions are welcome. Well done and thank you to the players Tom Townsend, Chris Willenken, Adam Grossack and Zach Grossach.

Once we have the video, will post it.

When I prototyped my idea in the late 1990, both of the partnerships had a big argument “how could you think like that, you are crazy?” I have it all on video, but did not take it further then. Now with time on my hands, I can do more. The partnership and communications side of our game adds a different dimension. Thanks for the chess links.

I think if they was any bad behaviour, they would not have ended up in 7 doubled, against a small slam.

Martin, I will definitely record this next one. So watch this space. I did not record the first one (various minor reasons).

Thank you all, it sent really well, much more smoothly than expected. You will see more of these events (but for real, rather than test). We had about 50 specs, with plenty of conversation.

Especially grateful to Dessi Malakova and Petar Ivanov for helping out at the last moment. They joined Tom Paske and David Gold for the exhibition match.

Perhaps you could look at the free BridgeMaster level 1 deals. They are on BBO.

Norman, there are many way of having group meetings, with sound and video too. So for example, you can have one meeting with 4 players at your table (and you play via BBO or any of the other three online methods).

You can all see and hear each other, doesn't drop, jitter, or blur. That should be fun and sociable. The services are free for small numbers or small amounts of time.

I would be happy to set up a sample game for you, and we can play 4 boards to try it out. With this method, you can have kibitzers both at the table, and in the group meeting. If there are people who want to kibitz the demo, then let me know and I can pass on the details of the time and what to click. There is no software to download if we use Zoom.

According to 1939 register there are 11 females with that last name, at least half of them could be “our” one.

Victor Mollo fans may like to know that he wrote an autobiography.
What you see below are links to 2 feature articles that I wrote.

The articles have a short description of his life, and an excerpt from the said book. The excerpt is from a chapter about cheating.
