I have now received the detailed information regarding the 39th World Team Championships in So Paulo, Brazil. As expected, our coverage of the event will be comprehensive. Have a look at ...

http://online.bridgebase.com/vugraph/sched...?order_by=event

Not only will we get three sessions a day for 12 days and a further two (Bermuda Bowl only) on the final day of the competition (September 12), we will also be broadcasting from a record number of tables in every session. 12 is once again the magic number. 12 tables three times a day!

The emphasis will be on the Bermuda Bowl, but on a regular basis we will also show matches from the Venice Cup, the d'Orsi Senior Bowl and the Transnational Teams.

At this point in time I can't be specific as far as fixtures are concerned, simply because I don't know them. The decisions will be made pretty late, often not until the day before.

Useful links (bookmark them!) are ...

Enjoy the show!

Stange idea to broadcast the SB and ignore one or two BB QF.

We're not going to hijack Roland's thread, right? So I split off the debate on free speech, site rules, etc to its own thread,

Sorry, R. This thread is all yours again.
