Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
The books have got to go.... Part II
Get rid of the books and make it GCC. Period.
Followup to the Well
What would you say to those of us who are disheartened by ACBL's refusal to open up the convention charts--we fall further and further behind the world every day. Why should gadgets such as Multi 2D not be GCC-legal when they are almost everywhere else in the world? I ...
A feat that will never be topped
Many moons ago, I had a partner who complained I always played all the hands. One day, we were playing in a regional Flight B Swiss, and she played the first board of the first match. As I put the dummy down, she said to me "I guess you're ...
Barry Plotkin's bidding problem: 65 KJ72 Q98763 T

Is this bid a psych, and if it is, is it a legal psych?
I honestly did not think this would be judged an illegal psych--and I didn't think it was a psych in 3rd seat at favorable.
