Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How would you rule?
Firstly we need to determine what the North/South agreements are. If the correct explanation is 'no agreement' then there has been misinformation and the TD may award an adjusted score if the non-offending side has been damaged. However there is also unauthorised information as North knows how South has ...
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Ed. Of course according to George Orwell 'Airstrip One' is part of Oceania not Eurasia
Who's Responsible
If the event is using pre-dealt boards the hand records can be loaded into the bridgemate control program and the bridgemates set to check that the opening lead card is actually in the hand making the opening lead. If it is not the bridgemate does not accept the score and ...
Ivey V Genting (the Supreme Court case in 2017, in England)
This is not a surprise. There is also a BW thread after the appeal. If you read my post there (repeated below for convenience) you will see that Phil Ivey was unlucky. It appears that he was allowed to waste his money on an ...

Bud et all. Please take look at the 'Australian' style swiss teams mentioned by Robin Barker above which is now almost universal in England where swiss teams is played using pre-duplicated boards. It really does make the board movement simple.
Who Will Direct the Directors?
Steve in both of your last posts you have got the laws wrong. In most of the world the 2007 and 2017 laws were virtually identical in this area mandating the awarding of a fair score which rectified damage and which might be weighted. However the 2007 Laws had an ...
What should the selectors do?
There is a much more recent example than those Richard has mentioned. A pair in the England team which came 4th in the Europeans in Ireland in 2012 was not selected for the Bermuda Bowl in 2013. It is true that there was a late substitution of a pair in ...
