PSYCHED OUT
FFS yourself Richard. Time for you to take your own blinders off. What I have been saying all along is: 1. I believe that psyches overall are not good for the game 2. Regardless of #1, I believe that so called 'baby' psyches cannot possibly be psyches at all. If ...

A further related excerpt from Meckstroth In The Well: _________________________ Ian Casselton Slightly contentious perhaps, but in top level events, e.g. anything from the WBF but also Spingold, Vanderbilt, Reisinger etc, where you should you draw the line on system regulation(s), and perhaps more importantly, why? Ian C ...
PSYCHED OUT
An interesting exchange with Jeff Meckstroth In The Well just now. So Larry Cohen and I are not alone. John Wood Hi Jeff, Congratulations on the Hall of Fame...richly deserved. Now just need to get the other half of Meckwell inducted. Two quick questions, related to an earlier comment ...
In the Well: Jeff Meckstroth
Hi Jeff, Congratulations on the Hall of Fame...richly deserved. Now just need to get the other half of Meckwell inducted. Two quick questions, related to an earlier comment of yours about destructive bidding methods: 1. What is your opinion of so-called 'baby' psyches, for example, advancing partner's preempt ...

Hamish - indeed you are correct that this discussion is not making any further progress. David - Sheesh indeed. Steve - a well structured argument. But in ...
PSYCHED OUT

I can understand how my suggestion regarding banning 'psych' bidding in stratified games could be interpreted as asking for "protection" but that was not my intent. I do understand that stratified games can also be open games, and ...
PSYCHED OUT
Thanks Max for your polite and constructive comments and suggestions. Unfortunately, in my experience anyway, those two attributes are far too often missing from contributions on Bridge Winners. The suggestions you made, and follow-on commentary from others is very interesting. The idea of expanding the range of limited events, and ...
PSYCHED OUT
"John - I wouldn't venture out into big-time poker anytime soon if you just can't stand bluffs." Whether "sad" or not, I have described my bridge exploits over the past 20 years with 100% accuracy. The quote above is highly relevant to this discussion, but perhaps not in the ...

PSYCHED OUT
This whole subject is pretty murky I would say. I happen to be a card-carrying member of the Larry Cohen school of thought regarding psyches, namely that there shouldn't be any, period. I thought that the idea of the duplicate game (compared with rubber bridge) was to try to ...
