San Diego Director Calls:
This ridiculous episode brings to mind one of my pet peeves about game setups - when cards for two consecutive boards have the exact same backs. Seems like would not be too hard to avoid this in sets of boards.
Bridge Magazine RIP?
LOL, Yu, I take it you are happier with the carbon dioxide that escapes into the air from the generation of electricity necessary to excite the electrons for the electronic medium rather than the (possibly) renewable wood that goes into "paper".
A New Blue Ribbon Pair
How to play bridge after drinking? Practice, practice, practice.
SHEN Wins Reisinger
Not sure Aliya Sinha's talents are very important to most bridge players.
One Law for the Rich?
How does the league "send a pair home"?
Seeding
The "seeding committee" (could be one person)
Italian team
Yes, much of this sounds like a full-blown "truther" soliloquy. See recent episode of the US TV show, "Criminal Minds" for a good exposition of the psychology of "truthers"
IMSA Elite Mind Games
Jan, how were the US teams chosen?
Need teammates for either NA Swiss teams or Reisinger
That's Jim Fox :) Are you a mixed pair? We are looking for a pair that can switch to the Mixed Swiss on Saturday if necessary.
