I think you're thinking too hard. :)

I have a feeling that some of the people responding here may not have realized I was specifically talking about Open+.

I don't think anyone would say Multi must be allowed at ALL levels–I certainly wouldn't. But I do think it should be allowed in 2-board segments under Open or Open+

How do you play bridge with your head stuck that far in the sand?

The game has to progress or it will die. If little old ladies in England can handle multi they can handle it here.

How about getting Multi admitted in 2-board segments and joining the 21st century?

This hand was given on Facebook. I was astounded, even there, at the number of people trying to justify a 3NT call.

We have double checked the system with multiple National directors and been told that 1D opener is legal in 2-board segments.

It could be 6+ clubs, without diamonds, yes. Since I'm unlikely to be playing in a Basic+ event, didn't think to ask about that.

I meant at the one-level. I'll edit.

Any policy where 1NT-2M is alertable, where 2M is natural and non-forcing, can be thrown in the garbage. Thanks. That's ridiculous.

There should be a vote available for “whatever regulating authority says this is alertable has way too much time on their hands”

Jeff, what Michael used to do, and what Aaron is doing may generate business, but it's not duplicate bridge to not play by the Laws, and for the beginners in his games–and I've seen this myself–when they move out into the bigger world they have many problems because they don't understand why every game isn't run the same way.

If she objected I'd tell HER to sleep on the couch :).

I don't think it would decrease turnout at all. Personally, if there was a 6K or even a 10K Soloway, I'd be all over it.

I'm still very tempted, but someone made the very good point that

(1) By playing in the Soloway we'd miss out on the 10K Swiss or the LM Pairs, and (2) There's a very small chance we'd make the KO and get to play a full day against a good team. If I want to play two days of Swiss against the best there's always the NABC+ Swiss later in the tournament.

If you think possible taking advantage of UI is a “trivial matter”, I pray I never have to play at a game you're directing.

Never mind, I should learn to read first. :)

And you NEVER know. In Vegas, my partner and I couldn't get out of the qualifying in the 6K LM Pairs. Then we lost in the round of 16 in the 6K Spingold to a team I know in my heart we were much better then.

If I could have talked my partner out of the Roth that night I would have. And would have missed a great day, even if we fell one bloody imp short of the semis.

I know it'll be a great performance for us if we make the KO. Winning a first-round KO match would be incredible. Don't care. Don't go to a NABC to not play against the best. The rewards are more than with the risk of leaving after the second day of the Swiss with our proverbial tails between our legs.
