about me

A bookful blockhead, ignorantly read

With loads of learned lumber in his head,

The CAS Judgment re FN: What’s Next?
"It is really remarkable that the Judgment states explicitly that while they are not guilty, they are not innocent." No, it isn't. No court anywhere in the world ever gives a verdict of "innocent".
The CAS Judgment re FN: What’s Next?
May I be the first to give this post the several thousand likes it richly deserves. The fact that I do not agree with most of it in no way detracts from its appeal.
The WBL, the EBL, and the ACBL -- Oh, My!

Best line for this grand?
"That line makes any time spades break 4-3 which is 62%." I think this may be an over-estimate.
The WBL, the EBL, and the ACBL -- Oh, My!

2 would be a more economical artificial force if recognised as such (as it should be because I didn't double 1). But partners should not be made to engage in cerebration. Bad things tend to happen.
Solid Suit Design in Strong !C Systems
Cambridge Precision had a 2 response that showed either a solid suit or both minors (opener usually asked with 2 and responder bid 2NT with minors or transferred to his solid suit). A variant was employed by a renowned BW contributor, but dispensed with a call that asked ...
CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
Fantoni and Nunes have made so many opening leads on Vugraph that if their leads were completely random with regard to orientation it would be be very easy to find a number where they led vertically with an honour in the suit and horizontally without. In other words, one could ...
