Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
More National Events
I've been mulling over some possible ways to make the limited NABC championships a little bit more inviting compared to similar Regional-rated events. 1st and 2nd get their pictures in the monthly Bulletin, but what about the rest? One thought, for games that award gold points anyway, would be ...
Steven Mcgrahan's bidding problem: K9852 KT A43 A32
If I was going to do something other than Pass here, I probably should have done that on the last round.
3 cards
The only lead that causes any problems for me is a , so I have to assume that's what W will lead when he finishes spades. If I throw two from dummy, then E-W can force me to use my A before I have the clubs unblocked ...
ACBL Attendance Dropoff - 2016-2018
Robert, midweek I see the D21 regionals have "Open Pairs 5000/+", "Midflight Pairs 1500/3000" and "Gold Rush Pairs 300/750". I don't know how successful they are, but I like the idea too.

What are your pet peeves?
People who never bother to alert until it's their turn to bid.
Gary Ansok's bidding problem: J76 AJ6 AT876 85
I ended up passing, not being sure what XX would show and thinking that since we did not appear to have a fit and the points were evenly split, bidding might help the opponents more than our side. As it turned out, we can make (DD) only 2 or ...
Steven Mcgrahan's bidding problem: AKJx AJxxx Kx Ax
Partner didn't open 1, we did.
David MacRae's bidding problem: JT QJT74 Q3 A973
I think bidding 3 is questionable, but possibly allowed (if partner had read 2 as a transfer, would passing deny 3-card support?) Correcting partner's 3 to 3 seems right out to me, though. You have to assume partner already knows you have 5 hearts, and ...
