about me

currently playing pro after retiring from trading....author of several bridge world articles and one book: "Invitation to Annihilation". no national championships but 100+ regional firsts or seconds.  Photo is from a trip to the fabulous Iceland (BTW: "Icemachine" runs a great club in Reykjavik).

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Has the statistical analysis been done?
Only a slight excursion, since you mention drury. After kibbitzing two pro friends in February, I saw Drury messed-up at each table. Remarking on this, one of them replied: "I've declared 2 five times this year!"
Priorities for the WBF - Followup
Yu. I would even go so far as to say there have been exactly two attempts at transparency by the wbf: Adam's outreach here and the few times Al Levy has posted here.
Watching Videos of F-N from Opatija
I truly hope this will be fruitful, if only because if a SECOND demonstrable method of cheating is uncovered the EBL can reinstate its ban and force the miscreants to head back to the CAS. This will also force the WBF to put up or shut up.

Venice Bridge Tournament. Harris Pairs Withdraw.
2 points. <♠ bidder. (I suspect he was in 1st seat)>>NOW CORRECTED BY AUTHOR The more important point, which perhaps Nic Hammond has addressed as I have not seen his list: It will be necessary to include a measure of variance as well.

Venice Bridge Tournament. Harris Pairs Withdraw.
The tag @RonaRESIGN should accompany my Zonal reps to the next WBF meeting.
In Praise of Richard Willey
BTW: As Avon, quoting Bobby Wolff, has pointed out, the Italians facing each other were 20-1 favorites! Perhaps less so out of direct view. (and I don't mean playing each other- just facing each other)
WBF Leaves International Olympic Committee
Indeed- isn't it sad that something so reasonable and well thought out is clearly farce?
