about me

Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
Why is it wrong to not alert if you play support doubles and your partner doesn't double? If you are not playing support doubles and your partner passes, do you need to alert and say "partner may not have heart support?" If you say "no" - then - what's the ...
Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
IMHO, this is part of what makes the game so fascinating. You learn x, y & z when you are starting out ... then a,b,c,d, e - and then more and more as you gain additional proficiency and insight. Surely the game is so complex and so deep, it's ...
Learn Bidding in 15 Minutes?
Most of my partners would say I haven't been able to learn bidding in 40 years....
Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
Ronald, as this was the year I became a Life Master, needless to say I wasn't quite near "expert" category! But, I had been taught that an alert meant something was unusual. As a result, since I thought PENALTY was "normal" - that was the one thing I did NOT ...
Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
Michael, yes I saw that. But - what if your opponents don't agree that it is against your own interest and in their interest? In my example of many years ago, my guess would be that my opponent was not trying to do something to my detriment in alerting something ...
Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
Michael - I wasn't speaking directly to this one aspect of the rules. I was wondering why people shouldn't take your view and apply it to all aspects of the laws. Who's to say then, who really is correct about what "feels right" and does not with the ...
Are partnership agreements & "inferences " thereto, alert able in ACBLand?
Michael - in theory at least, isn't this suggestion the way to chaos? What happens when what feels wrong to me feels 100% correct to you? Are directors supposed to punish some if what "feels wrong" to certain players also feels wrong to that director - but not punish others if ...
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: KQ xxx xxx AT9xx
Indeed, Richard. Is partner supposed to bid again holding: A1098x, AKxx, x, KJx, if we are silent?
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: KQ xxx xxx AT9xx
In my world, double is penalties; not a game try when I haven't been able to support either of partner's suits previously. I hate bidding 3 with only 2 - but - no guarantees that partner has 5, IMHO - and my cards seem to be working SO well ...
What is 4!C?
And your ask over 5 is ... ;)
