Petition for NABC+ Midnight KO
Let's upgrade match awards at Zips to 10 platinum lol. What's the trophy for first in this NABC+ event? A bottle of wine and a picture with our favorite director Scott Campbell?
I tend to like 1 to confirm unbalanced shape (usually 4+ 5s, could be 4-4 if some 4441). Precision I think it's necessary as a way to rediscover opener's shape regarding length for slam auctions. 2/1 it's less necessary, but still my ...

This "egdirb" sounds very reflexive of another game I know...
Recruiting Opportunities at the Summer NABC
The YNABC is a good competition. It's the reason I attended by first NABC 4 years ago when the NABC happened to be in Chicago. I feel like access people without ties to the bridge community will be a challenge though. I was lucky to find out about it ...
What does this 4!S call mean?
If you play kickback, and start finding sequences where you're not sure it's kickback, it's time to kick it back off the card.
