Advancing Partner's 1N Overcall
For those who play that 3h is invitational with both majors, and 3s forcing with both majors (at least 5/5), I would definitely bid 3s. If partner likes his hand for a major suit, he could cue bid a minor suit Ace; otherwise, he bids 3n without 3-card support ...
Jump Shift Question
David: I do apologize - I forgot that the general rules of the ACBL in regard to bidding in contract bridge do not apply to you.
Contacting ACBL Customer Service
Robert & Michael: I really think Steve & Ray summed it up --you both miss the point. When there is a 40% layoff in a staff of 69 full-time personnel in Horn Lake, and those remaining are generally dedicated to resolving issues of on-line bridge, you want instant customer service???
Jump Shift Question
David: You really MISS the point, completely. Did you see Kit Woolsey's comment? If any call is SO FAR outside the norm that an opponent would not generally understand its meaning, it generally requires an alert. What you would prefer as to whether there should be an alert system ...
Jump Shift Question

Chris: TY for the timely post. Like Steve, I would be VERY interested in the cost itemization when you learn of it. As a member of the Unit 140 Board that made our opposition to the Motion of D25 before the ACBL Board of Directors known to our District Director ...
Opponents Preempt after Partner's 2!C Opener
David: I detest a point count analysis in a case like this. There is a huge difference between Jxx,xxxx,Jxxx,Qx (which may be absolutely worthless, and Kxx,xx,xx,J9xxx (which in my book, is a hand with 3/4 to 1.25 tricks). For that reason, I ...
