I bid 2h at match points, 1 at imps. The playability in other strains worries me more at imps

Okay, south plays spade jack. Club to the ace and club gets the 10 from south

If this is a good fit, imagine not all dummy's points opposite your small cards. if you switch the diamonds and clubs in dummy it is at least 50 50. Switch the hearts and clubs and it is a great game

I feel 4 spades shows a mediocre limit raise. With a good one bid 3spades and then something exciting next

I agree. More simply takeout of other minor.

If they won the first 2 tricks without revoking the maximum you could get is making 5. You do not transfer tricks from before the revoke.

If the director believes there was no intent to pass, then the auction is not over. There is no regulation in any jurisdiction I have seen, and certainly not the acbl that says picking up the bids definitely means pass.

That is the point. Nationals are about break even. Most regionals in our area hope to break even. The club department is small, and the revenue is almost purely profit. So why dont the clubs have a few representatives on the board, say 1/3 at least

The main issue is representation on the bod. The unit boards who run the tournaments elect the bod, so the clubs, which are a huge profit center for the acbl, have no voice.

My standard rules. Conventions are off in comp unless discussed. Bids are natural unless discussed. For me 3 clubs is natural.

If they bid 7, I think you want to be in 7 also. Game gives negative equity.

If I had a vote, I would make the event illegal going forward. Allowing it for top bracket is not because top players want it but rather because few teams want to play in the top bracket.

Yes, invitational to bid 6 in competition. Not sure what that means for the poll.

I have found it is rarely right to offer unsolicited advice. Obviously the woman overreacted, but pointing out opponents mistakes even in the nicest way can cause problems.

After they have opened, playing 2 places or weak heart raise seems much more important to me. You still have a 5h bid as a slam try

Many play 4nt as 2 places or a weak 5h bid with 5h directly being a slam try.

I think information should be recorder as soon as possible to avoid disputes. Since there are no acbl rules, I never complain about how my opponent wants to use the bridgemate, and feel telling them is impolite.

I would double as east. West took a shot and it could have worked. I would blame west, but dont really mind.
