Open Kansas City Discussion Thread
I'm renting a car for $9 per day (not a typo) + taxes through Thrifty via Priceline. For 3 days, it will be about $67. Don't know if the price is still there, but if you're leaving the hotel at all, it may be worth it.
Letting them off a revoke
How about this? Against the elderly or "challenged" don't let the revoke become established. When you know that someone didn't follow, say something like "who didn't follow?" It really irks me to see sometimes so called experts take childish glee once a revoke becomes established so that ...

Does zero tolerance exist at the #1 bridge club in the country?
The preferential treatment issued to pros and clients is an important one that you've brought light to. Their etiquette, demeanor, etc are often problematic. There are many players who have come to think that the purpose of the league is to cater to the pros and clients. There are ...
Is West's pass forcing in this auction?
Simply put, why does West have to be punished for trying to push them up one higher? Mission accomplished. Now you have the best of it.
Precision and Bergen Raises
I'm a recent convert to precision, and I agree with ditching 1nt forcing. I like 2 level bids to show support for opener only forcing to 2 if openers suit. 3 can cover the better hands or Jacoby with Swedish responses. Always felt that the bidding systems for ...
