Partner's hand is AJx, KJx, Jxx, Axxx. 7 is a fine spot but in our precision system I had no way to determine his exact aces easily. In this standard auction I assume he can key card over 4 and we can show the void. Now maybe he can bid 7. Any suggested auctions in your favorite system?

I thought this was a great effort and my kids thought it was entertaining.

I for one hope it works well if passed. I think there is a chance it is the jump start for change. I am just concerned that it doesn't address the real problems and will be a distraction with a BIGGER board for several years to come.

Compared to standard time controls in tournament chess, bridge IS quick paced.

No one seems interested in this problem Phil. Weird.

I know that many are excited at the idea of change and seeing a real proposal that has a chance of passing. Perhaps that is why we have seen little discussion regarding the new regions created or other details. I'd rather get the change right than get it done fast. Many people seem to think we should not have board members elected by geographic regions but this plan fully embraces voting by geographical Units.

The plan creates some huge Regions like 1, 9, 10 and 13. Region 10 stretches from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. This makes it even harder for Unit boards to vote for candidates they know. It makes it easier for candidates to manipulate themselves into a Regional Director spot than earn themselves into one.

I am returning an unimaginative seven of spades.

This is why I asked about the initial jump 3. There would need to be a reason for partner to delay ask vs direct ask. Perhaps a side 4-card heart suit? K, AJxx, A, AKQ10xxx.

What would 3 have been over 1?

I'm giving this a bump as I still haven't heard from any possibles for this regional. Anyone know if they will have a pairs game if we don't find teammates?

Marten's book “Workhorse” is one of my favorite bridge books of the last ten years. I'd tear out the page, perhaps send a note to the publisher, and learn from the bridge materiel.

Puerto Vallarta? Remember your passport as I understand the pathway back is riddled with unscalable walls. Have fun in the sun.

I didn't read the series until hearing about it here on bridgewinners. Since deciding to try it, I have red them all and started in on the author that took up the series after the original author's death.

Did anyone here like the show “Jake and the Fatman?”

As you now there are LOTS of possibilities. One just has to prioritize and make agreements. Frequency of gain matters to me and hiding opener's heart suit when I don't need to know about it seems a frequent winner to me.

Playing reverse Flannery I like to play that 1x-1S-1NT 2H is game forcing. This allows partner to not show hearts after 1x-1S-1NT-2D. I think that is valuable especially at mps.

The double is for take out but could contain 15+ balanced as the 1NT is not natural. I only mentioned overcall structure as many that play 1NT for take out play a 15+ “power” double in that system.
