District 8 Georgia Heth Elected ACBL President
Although the position is more "ceremonial" than substantive, I have had the opportunity to interact with our new President when she chaired a Disciplinary Appeal before the ACBL, when I represented our Unit (140, central NJ). I found her to be extremely intelligent, very knowledgeable about the subject matter, and ...
RIP Ken Cohen
Rich: I do agree that Ken will be missed. I found it absolutely amazing how he could win with some of his students (many of whom could barely follow suit). Although I never got to play against Barry Crane, Ken was, by far, the best matchpoint player against whom I ...
Opening 1N with a singleton Ace
Pass - partner has already denied a major, and unless he/she bid 1n with a good 10, game is unlikely
Opening 1N with a singleton Ace
I think Cornelia, earlier, made a good point that with 4-4 in the majors, there is no need to open 1N with a singleton minor suit ace, as you can pattern out; I would never do so with a major suit singleton. I reserve opening 1n with a minor suit ...
RIP Harold Feldheim
Harold was indeed a character, but he always had a good joke to tell, and was a great family man, caring deeply for his children and grandchildren. We played as teammates several times at east coast regionals, and I was proud to have called him a friend. He will be ...
Bridge World Standard: Does Anyone Actually Play It?
Chris: Usually every 4th or 5th regional I attend, I "run into" two good Flight A players who have never played together, and, rather than argue endlessly about "systems", agree to play BWS -- more power to them. Quite frankly, I believe many of the last two series of amendments to ...
Overcall with weak suit?
Gary: I am in complete agreement with your first paragraph.
Hasta la vista, visa?
Cameron: For both philosophic and political reasons, although I would NEVER go to China, I agree that there is real risk for citizens of certain countries to go there (particularly with the US-China trade war). That being said, ANY country should have the right to bar a convicted felon from ...
A "Thank You" Would Be Nice !
Don: So what if there is a "lawsuit in the wind"?? Case law has well established (including a decision by the US Supreme Court) that private organizations can discipline their own members as they choose, provided they do not otherwise violate the law (i.e, discrimination based upon a "prohibited ...
A "Thank You" Would Be Nice !
Rob: Our unit, 140 (central NJ), has almost 3,000 members. Although I appreciate that we can apply for "Asst. Dist. Recorder" status (which I will recommend), I do not understand the logic in eliminating a Disciplinary Chair at the Unit level(particularly given the ineffectiveness of our District in ...
