Bobby Wolff in January 2013 said:

Jimmy's recent book "A World Bridge History" chronicles much of the above without failing to give credit to those who richly deserve it."
Bobby Wolff mentions this book by Jaime Ortiz-Patino in his blog and again in Jaime's obituary on the WBF site. Have you read it or do you know anything about it?

Yes, I have a copy - bought it this past January with help from ecats. I think it was their last two copies. Very interesting book.
Ultra Relay: see Daniel's web page: http://bridgewithdan...stems/Ultra.pdf

C3: Copious Canape - Improved version of Ultra Relay, notes not posted yet.

Scrap heap: Canapé Attack System with Strong and 4-cd Major openings ...

Back to the Future? Using 1 &1 responses to Strong 1 as Positive Exclusion Color Bids.

NOW playing a Mosca (Nightmare-Fantunes like) system with canapé, 11-14 NT with Keri Invites and Bailey 2 bids, & 15+ 1 opener with transfer negatives @ 1-level & transfer positives @ the 2- and 3-levels. Canape after opening 1 or 1 (into a minor suit only). 3/1/17: Adding Nightmare Canape responses to 1 opening.
