Bridge is a game and should be fun.

My partner is the greatest bridge player of all time - whoever my partner is.

What did Larry Cohen say?
I prefer A, Q and A. If trumps are 3-2 you're home if clubs are 33, 42 or if west has a singleton JT (provided you finesse the 9 on the second round).
Democracy ACBL-style: ATL General Membership Meeting.
FWIW: a motion is before the board in Atlanta to move the masterpoint committee off the board in a manner similar to the C&C committee. It's important to implement a sound masterpoint plan. I am the originator of the motion and -- as I've written to my district elsewhere: "The number of masterpoints assigned to a bridge event won't impact the ACBL's fortunes in 10 years; the board should focus on those issues that will."

ACBL Dues Revenue Flow: Bad for Recruitment
The starting point of the 2017 Club Task Force I chaired was: "Is owning a bridge club a good deal?" I encourage further discussion on substantive ideas such as what Chris proposed - or club owners can contact me directly to offer private input on systemic ideas for improving the club-owning ...
RIP Cecil Cook
Here, here. Cecil was a long-time contributor to southern California bridge and a former ACBL President. I played a few times with Cecil earlier this year, and he still had chops at the table. The link to the ACBL obituary:
Philly Slam Poll 3 of 3: Responses to Queen Ask
Standard is to bid the cheapest king over the queen ask - WHEN YOU HAVE THE QUEEEN. So, - 5 = no queen - 6 = queen, but no side king - Suit bid = queen plus the suit bid is the cheapest side king
ACBL Inaction Regarding Attracting Younger Members
Great comments, Eric. Full disclosure - I'm a District Director. I won't be generallly engaging in online debate, but this topic is near and dear to me, so I encourage discussion. College students can be targeted by virtue of their institutions. Generic marketing efforts (to attract, say, 30-50 year ...
