Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Platinum Point and Membership Stats - ACBL?!
Robert! Don't give the ACBL ideas!
Insufficient Bid
Would that be natural, or a Micro-Micro Splinter?
Antique (?) duplicate boards
I have ones like both of these... also duplicate WHIST boards! Not unheard of - found them on eBay a long time ago.
How often do you play bridge?
BBO is about it, being something like 50 miles from the closest evening club.
When NOT to explore a 4-4 fit?

Insufficient advance
North should bid 3 over (under?) 3.
