Has anyone read Ron Klinger's new book "Right Through The Pack Again" (?)
It features Klinger's human bridge expert hero "The Old Master" defeating

I am kind of intrigued by the format of the competition. Are there human operators authorised to enter the opposition partnership agreements regarding calls and plays as and when they arise (mid auction or play) prior to their own computers committing to action?
Psych (pron. saik): A gross and deliberate misstatement of honour strength and/or suit length. Expressly permitted under Law 73E but forbidden contrary to that law by Acol club tourneys.

Psyche (pron. sahy-kee): The human soul, spirit or mind (derived, personification thereof, beloved of Eros, Greek myth).
Masterminding (pron. mPosted ImagesPosted ImagetPosted Imager-mPosted ImagendPosted Imageing) tr. v. - Any bid made by bridge player with which partner disagrees.
