Who Will Direct the Directors?
I had a private message from Sabine asking if I could understand the Estonian convention card in re 1-1 auctions. I replied that I could understand what was there, but nothing I could see in the disclosure helped me to understand [i]why[/i] 1 was the ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?

Who Will Direct the Directors?
Er... tell 'em what you play? "He may of course have a balanced 15-17 - the poor guy is sometimes dealt them, which he regards as an insult to his creativity - but he can also have..."
What should the selectors do?
Wikipedia, which is invariably pretty quick to update its biographies should the subject of any of them die, still considers Peters alive (though very ill with Alzheimer's).
