Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Slow double - should I pull anyway?
I think the problem here is that partner did not have his x, since an invitational heart hand could include a multitude of hand types, and partner had a poor opening hand. "In the old days" (perhaps 15-20 yrs ago), slow doubles (at a national level) were often ruled by ...
2NT
Many yrs. ago, AT MP'S (only), the theory was that the smaller (i.e., 3-4.5 hcp or less) was the 4th chair, the more important it was for him to double, since the 2nd chair had an opening hand behind declarer. (I think this was put forward by ...
Going for the Overtrick at Matchpoints
Len: I am not so sure I agree with Kit on this occasion. The hand is extremely "suit-oriented", and lacks 3 spades; therefore, I believe only a few pairs in a strong field would open 1n with these cards. (As an aside, to open the hand 1n is also is ...
Common Game (afternoon) January 12
Georgiana: I have seen a side hold all 13 cards in suit a few times. The most interesting one came many years ago, when I played in the opening session of the NABC Imp pairs. After a spirited competitive auction, I put my partner in 5c (she had bid them ...
Several Possibilities- Common Game Yesterday Bd. 25
Len: I agree: RKC is a poor crutch here. Besides, if partner is actually void in spades, a grand is not beyond the pale. I would make an Italian Blue team style 4c bid.
Ripped Off
Steve: Our district is one of the ones in the pilot program for Purple pass. There is currently no surcharge for a credit card pymt., but my understanding is that if it is implemented, there will be an additional charge to reflect the fee charge by the credit/debit card ...
Ripped Off
I hate to say this, but leaving cash unattended shows a lack of common sense, IRRESPECTIVE of the circumstances. What is actually scarier for Tournament Chairs or Unit treasurers, many of whom are over 70, is that after a sectional, once the Tournament concludes, the ACBL Director hands over the ...
Looking for partner for Honolulu NABC
TY for the reply. I can live with Soloway jump shifts at imps. I will not be in Lancaster this weekend -- too many things to do before Hawaii. I will review your CC's, and, if it doesn't work out with your other possible partner, and you are still ...
Electing a Member of the ACBL Board of Directors
Gary & John: sorry guys, but neither of you has a clue. The formerly free hotels rooms are now only reimbursed 30% of cost,and, more important, ONLY for the days in which there are BoD meetings (no longer the entire tournament). In addition, only lunch is offered by the ACBL ...
Electing a Member of the ACBL Board of Directors
Gary: the "perks" for the Dist.Directors have been drastically reduced. I serve on the Board of Governors, and we receive no remuneration, or perks of ANY KIND. When I go to Hawaii, I will receive the same compensation that I get when I do charity work ($0, and no ...
