Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: AJ3 74 AQ9743 A9
BUT - 1NT surely would not be the worst bid anyone ever made.
The most popular card game in Italy
Don, the version I heard was a bit different. Lady wanted to double, but called the director because she didn’t have the right bid in her box. “Madam, you have several double cards,” he told her. “Oh no”, she responded. Those are takeout doubles. I need one with an ...
An unethical behavior (in my view) happened at a regional - what should I do?
Actually, Ed - I'm betting mine is worse than yours. (I almost didn't make it out of 4th grade, it was so horrible.) So for ME - comments are rendered moot!
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
I neglected to add this to my comment above. Mike also gets to enjoy Cookie's company - which is an enormous gift. Not only is Cookie one of the most amazing tournament organizers and marketers (SHE should be CEO!!) - she is one of the nicest. A gem of a player!

An unethical behavior (in my view) happened at a regional - what should I do?
Actually, Ed, a small quibble here. Our NAP finals were decided TWO days after the event occurred because someone had entered a contract on the wrong side (Howell movement). The only person to catch it was someone 250 miles away who did not play in the event! So - it is ...
Do What Is Possible, Not What Is Easy
Plus - now Mike gets to play with our dear friend, Cookie. Although she is not anywhere in Mike's league as a player (and has a vision disability to boot) - their partnership is something beautiful. Mike continues to help Cookie and overlook her frustrating disasters when cards look different than ...
4 Convention Cards on the table possible motion
I like the color coding. Otherwise - sometimes unsure about what is alertable - or not - or announceable - or not. Don't see what is wrong with reminding the pair filling out the card what is supposed to be done. Is there an issue with aiding accuracy?
