Final trials will be played from September 23-25. Over the past few months, I have been asked many times about a variety of infringements. Or, should I say in many cases, imagined infringements.
Can I say this? Call the tournament director if you have any doubts at all.
I don't really know why inexperienced players give rulings, especially when they are incorrect. Always ask an expert.
Our Lady's Hospital Crumlin will benefit from the proceeds of a charity tournament at the Ballyroan Community Centre this afternoon at 3 o'clock.
What would you bid on the W hand here?

The late Pat Walshe had a theory that all vulnerable overcalls against a strong NT were two-suited.
It's hard to blame N with the knowledge they hold easily the balance of HCP. As ever, distribution wins the day, but you do have to catch the DQ. Ask Richard Elvin.
