Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What is your bidding plan?
RR: I wouldn't pass 1H with that hand.
Richard Pavlicek Suould Be In The ACBL Hall Of Fame
Forget ACBL, WBO Hall of Fame. If there isn't one then we have our first inductee.
FRIEDLAND Disqualified From Reynolds Spring KO
I suspect that Mr Friedland needs another masterpoint like I need another pretzel.
Teacher websites
i use ionos who used to trade as 1and1 for web hosting and as an email server.
FRIEDLAND Disqualified From Reynolds Spring KO
Hopefully he will just slink away.
Hand to go with Question about Double
Even if I thought it was meant as penalty I wouldn't pass, my hand has a very high O/D ratio.
Hand to go with Question about Double
West passed the double! Next hand; nothing more to see here.
Question about a double
I think you are right in this context which would make thrump a sub-species of abdication.
Question about a double
Its a 'do something sensible' double; does 'rosebud' cover that? Maybe 'abdication double' would work.
Ian Grant's bidding problem: 9872 T2 KQJ5 Q74
Why not? They have a better chance to find a major suit fit if you don't.
