ACBL Ranking
None
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Any books on Moscito?
I take it the book it refers to never got published?
Revoke vs. Renege
I think you're thinking too hard. :)
How should Multi be allowed (if at all) under the Open+ chart?
I have a feeling that some of the people responding here may not have realized I was specifically talking about Open+.
ACBL Competition and Conventions Committee
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?

Barry Plotkin's bidding problem: AK84 K AQJ5 KQJ3
This hand was given on Facebook. I was astounded, even there, at the number of people trying to justify a 3NT call.
Under current ACBL Open/Open+ chart rules, is it legal to open this hand at the 1-level in 1st seat?
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.
