Kieran Dyke's bidding problem: A6 75 KJ4 AQJ964
In for a penny, in for a pound. Albeit, I would never open the hand 1NT...if i did, I would not hesitate to bid 3nt after subsequent developments.
What are your pet peeves?
My number 1 pet peeve -- although it only happens with one partner -- is when she calls for a card from dummy before I have even put the entire dummy down! How can you plan the play when you have not even seen the entire dummy? I have now taken to ...
What are your pet peeves?
@Mathew, in the same vein, putting the double cards jumbled in with the pass cards so that one comes up unexpectedly.

@Randy, "everyday" players are coming; but I, too, noticed a real decline (from Toronto) in the mini events. I had not known about mini events or participated in them before Toronto (perhaps marketing could be improved for these types of events since they include the bulk of the ACBL membership ...
Does anyone know what time it is?
Actually, just this past month I drove 442 miles (according to Google) from my home in Massachusetts to Reston, VA to participate in a regional. I did stop in Valley Forge, PA on the way down and Fairfield, NJ on the way home to participate in regionals in those respective ...
Condition of Contest
In all honesty, I did not have a question in my mind as to the meaning of the COC. I take my share of blame for not seeing the ambiguity in the language -- I thought that my way of viewing the COC was the only way of viewing it. I ...
