You need better diamonds for that. KJ1096 perhaps. Otherwise you are quite possibly just making it much easier for them to double you for penalties on a hand where you know you might be down many hundreds against a partscore.

Almost as easy as it is to spread false rumors….

3. I think pretty much everyone advocating 1 who talked about a rebid has said that.

Possibly a better idea would be to dissolve the bridge partnership for the sake of keeping the marriage?

Of course but you aren't allowed to act on that at the table. If only the UI tells you they didn't have a misunderstanding, then you may have to bid as though they did have one.

How many of them no longer participate as a result?

I don't see why it wouldn't apply to all open NABC+ events…so not the 5K or 10K, but definitely the Open Swiss, Open Pairs, Mixed Pairs, Mixed Teams, Senior and Women's events, etc.

Do you mean that last part, or are you a customer of the airlines?

Tough to do that if you don't know how many days you'll keep winning (assuming you are just there for one event).

One reason we preempt is so that partner can swing the ax….

If I do anything but pass, it's an admission that I want to take Gambling 3NT off the card.

Was 2 forcing, or can overcaller pass with four hearts and 5+ diamonds? What would double of 2 have been last round? If takeout, better pass now since partner will never expect this hand.

That, and never ask him why he revoked.

The goal is to reduce (or avoid having to increase) fees for most players and thus increase the size of the membership, which will satisfy the egos of our champions whose titles won't be very meaningful if membership shrinks too much (which is why it's fair to structure this so they subsidize the growth).

I don't think it's a growth idea to appear closed to people who don't live within commute distance of an ever-dwindling number of clubs.

What about using David's numbers shifted by a day, so that day 1 is $50

I'd bid if the opponents were vulnerable. A hand where their vulnerability matters more than ours.

I don't think it would work. If you are playing the Spingold, do you care about winning MPs or winning the event? Also, you didn't understand the proposal which was a straight up purchase after the result was known.

What might work for Spingold and Vanderbilt is to have an expensive bracket that is properly seeded and places 3 teams in the semis, and a regular price bracket that is best plays best / worst plays worst seeded and places one team in the semis.
