Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Venice Bridge Tournament. Harris Pairs Withdraw.
F-N were convicted by ACBL. The ACBL report is private. F-N were found not guilty by CAS. The EBL report detailing the evidence has not been made public. There is plenty of material published by Kit Woolsey back in 2015 that is more than sufficient for any reasonable person to ...
Lanzarotti Readmitted to ACBL
Good start, but ... any motion passed by the BOD can be replaced with a subsequent motion later passed by a future BOD.
Gatlinburg 2019
The word "bracketed" could/should be added before the words "Open KO", similar to how Swiss teams are advertized. I'll mention it to the D7 TOC next week. As Steve points out, it is described in more detail on page 2. D7 also runs a seeded KO at some ...
Gatlinburg 2019

@Richard "> one million dollars from Bill Gates and Warren Buffet to > teach bridge in schools and colleges in the US. 1. Were those grants every spent? If so, by who and on what? 2. Were those grants contingent on Bridge's status as a "sport"?" I happen to know these ...
Vugraph at Gatlinburg Regional in 2020?
No screens.
Venice Bridge Tournament. Harris Pairs Withdraw.
They are in there. The book is out for review at the moment. The charts make it much easier to see who is cheating than just tables/lists. Probably later this year before it is published.
Venice Bridge Tournament. Harris Pairs Withdraw.
@Michael: The question is how much naming I'm allowed to do. For example, if I generate lists based on statistical data, but it is obvious from the list that this is also a list of cheating players, can I list the names? Example: opening lead to partner's honor ...
