Senior Quarterfinal Hand
Turns out (according to the Bulletin recounting of the appeal) that the question of interest was the tendency of the responder (of 1H) to raise with 4. That inquiry seems a little off-target if opener can have the same point count (10 with singleton K) and open 1H with 6 ...
Orlando - The ACBL Reacts!
I'm starting to wonder if "so many people got sick" at all Nationals now. At Orlando, I could not believe the amount of coughing toward the end of the tournament. Could it have something to do with average age and/or general health of players?
Senior Quarterfinal Hand
Steve, WADR, not sure why you are responding (stating what is already known). I was just bolstering the opinion that the point of the hand is whether 5-card or 6-card heart suit. The question would be whether or not it would be "standard" for the East/West partnership to open ...
Senior Quarterfinal Hand

Buffett's & Gate's World View
Holmes, how do you account for the "abomination" of all the businesses and people who bought/buy and effectively used/use "MS Windows"? They were all just "abominably stupid"?
Buffett's & Gate's World View
Guess it may depend on how long ago "a number of years back" is. :)
Buffett's & Gate's World View
All, notwithstanding JM's apparently false statement, how many millions does the group feel that Gates and Buffett should donate for a "recreational" activity considering all the known serious problems afflicting the world.
