Not only an offer to play, but a decline of the game invitation. A weak (given the opening bid) 5-5.

“some soft jazz music, dim lights, a chilled bottle of champagne”

This is getting very close to TMI. :-)

And Anthony Weiner just got 21 months for sexting with a 15 yo girl. I understand that tax evasion is not looked upon kindly by the authorities, but his offense seems much worse.

Note: this is not in any way a political statement.

@Jane, I only have my notes. The details have been expanded (in coordination with Jim Munday) since I began playing 15+ years ago. It's part of a larger section, but I can extract and send to you, if you provide your email address via PM. I can send it to you in rich text format (*.rtf), which you should be able to open with WordPad or the comparable Apple app.

Note: the way I play you cannot “get out” in anything other than responder's first suit.

s and inv+ (to slam, that is. Not a game force over 1x, but a GF and possible slam try after 2N).

The more opportunities I get to eat, the heavier I get. A shorter break between sessions would be my preference.

I play this is xfer to (4-4 in majors). with 4-5, I'd bid 3 (xfer to ), then bid 3.

My preference is 4 suit xfers after a 2N rebid, but there are a lot of follow-ups that have to be discussed. If I'm “filling out a card,” with a short amount of time, I'd just play 3C = Wolff and 3D as checkback.

The ATL 2013 Summer NABC was played at the earlier times, IIRC. I think I remember that the Summer 2018 schedule was the same. But evidently, that was nixed by a combination of the ACBL and the tournament chairman, so it will be at the later times (1:00 and 7:30). Or so I've been told this week.

I'm not sure when the policy changed - maybe when the ACBL changed travel agents - but the cancellation policy was different, not too long ago. IIRC, there was a small charge ($30 rings a bell) for a cancellation within 45 days and a one night charge if canceled within 14 days.

I know this was not much better than what it was before this change, but you were not allowed until 72 hours to cancel with no charge.

“The only way to remove the current management, is to throw out the NBO reps to the WBF, and cause a new approach, by changing the old guard..”

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss…

…I once said at the table to the famed Ron Andersen: “Did you graduate Magna Cum Laude from Asshole School or were you born naturally talented?”

You don't realize HOW true that was. Actually Summa Cum Laude. I'll leave it at that.

Playing BWS, I might have bid 3 over 1, invitational. It's not perfect with this holding, and could miss a good fit, but we miss , now, as a bid of 3 over 2 is defined as a big raise At this point, 1N was probably a winner, as it sounds like partner is short in (most likely 4+ and opps not bidding ). It may not have been so great if he had rebid 2.

Edit: the biggest loser for 1N is when partner passes.

@Don, it may have been the same NR who I had trouble with responding to emails. I finally had to email Hartman. I got a response from the NR within an hour.

If a paper form is filled out and delivered to the recorder, unless it is just reporting a psyche or something of the like, the Recorder will (at least should) contact the other party. The player that fills out the form is not disclosed to the “offender,” though they might be able to figure it out.

I'm not sure what happens if an online form is filled out. My experience (from a partner that filled one out) is that it may go into the circular file.
