Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Oh, the pain
Sorry...will be showing my incompetence now....why does 6NT by north not make in first hand when hearts run and none of the others occur? I think I misread the post. I htought you were suggesting you took the safer auction because only one factor was needed, and sacrificed ...
Familiar face in a Chessbase article...
Guessed who it would be before looking. Oddly enough, Had considered writing one of your five-point "who-is-it" questions based on first clue - his being the only person on bridge winners that I will ever have spoken to (45 or so years ago).... wondered whether it could be put together in ...
European Champs - entry (commitment, and photos)
"...and if anything goes wrong with the tournament in any way possible, it will be entirely my fault...."

Half‑Baked?
You could call it a "oney" (pronounced 1A, or won-y, or one-y [all the same, with the emphasis on the first syllable] taken from the Scots pronunciation of "one of" (one ae) as in one-of-two or one-of-three or one-of-the-others.... (1A2, 1A3....) ....and depending on whether you are using 2clubs or ...
How would you rule?
Let's call it an accidental psyche. (Must feel bad if bidding a deliberate psyche to alert and explain to screenmate exactly what your bid is pretending to mean but doesn't)
USA2 Final, Segments 1 and 2
Not looking to restart yesterday's stooshie, but was there not maybe one interesting hand to be gleaned from the women's final?
