NABC Appeal
I’ve been saying this for a long time and gotten very little traction, but I’ll say it again: There needs to be a lot of work done on how to conduct polls so that they are relevant to the case at hand, and acknowledgement that there are times ...
NABC Appeal
Tom, I think that’s gonna be a tough case to make if our agreement is that jumping to 6s shows Q of spades, no kings. Of course, with only 1 key card that starting to look like a pretty lousy 1nt opener. :)
NABC Appeal
Of course I have. If responder realizes what has happened and bids 5s in tempo, then opener is free to decide to pass if that’s what s/he decides has happened. My point is that once the 5s bid is out of tempo, it’s forcing.

A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
The question “what does redouble mean?” is fine...in a club game. Rick, you handled that with admirable (predictable) aplomb.
A GNT Debacle: Too Many Winners
People make mistakes, sure, but “...occasionally inept...”, Ellis? (To the tune of “Jet Song” - West Side Story) When you’re inept you’re inept all the way From you get out of bed ‘til they cart you away When you’re inept when the sh*t hits the fan You ...
