Legal Aid Requested
I found the Walsh reference in his 2/1 book. Hardy. Two Over One Game Force. Seventh printing. March 1999. Page 76 “When responder has a minimum hand with three good spades and a singleton heart, his best bridge bid in response to the opening bid of one heart is ...

ACBL have Alert Charts, Alert Procedures, Alert Pamphlets, Convention Charts. They are not in sync with each other.

CAS Decision on Fantoni and Nunes
It did. The CAS panel chose not to accept this. From the CAS panel's perspective (from reading their report) they believed that they had lots of things to decide upon. Were FN cheating? From the bridge expert witness's testimony it did not seem so. The statistics were high ...
The Trombones vs the Dalmatians
South's pregnant dog met North's fed dog: http://www.bridgebase.com/tools/handviewer.html?linurl=http://www.bridgebase.com/tools/vugraph_linfetch.php?id=7081 Pregnant dogs occur (from a computer simulation) about every 0.18% of boards. Here's one from the Bermuda Bowl this year: http://www ...
