Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Well, at many NABCs the host hotel fills up, so it is not an issue.
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Randy, I don't think that is *too* unreasonable if everyone knew ahead of time that entry fees might be higher if not enough people booked for the host hotel (or maybe better, start with higher entry fees and have lower entry fees if enough people book through the host ...
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
I'm not attending Hawaii (because I don't want to play bridge if I go to Hawaii), but when I do attend NABCs/regionals, I strongly prefer staying in the host hotel (and dislike dealing with the discount sites and dislike AirBnB as a concept). I felt after booking ...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: T6 J4 AK83 AKQ84
For those bidding 3, is that gf? If not, what bids by partner will establish a game force? What will you bid next if partner bids respectively 3, 3, 4, 4?
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: A94 Qx KQT9542 A
We had not discussed 4, but since we could have started with 3 to show 55 in the minors gf, I don't think it would have been interpreted as a two suiter.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: A94 Qx KQT9542 A
I think transferring to diamonds and then bidding 3nt has to be at least a mild slam try otherwise you would just bid 3nt and not bother showing the diamonds. I agree that this hand is probably too good to do that though.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: KJ85 72 AQ84 KJ8
With a diamond honor, a club honor and decent hearts seems like there is a good shot for 3nt (especially red at imps). With say xx AJ10xx KJx Qxx 3NT is very good and it has play with a worse hand. Basically I agree that the standard agreement is that ...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: A94 Qx KQT9542 A
As to your last question, I don't think there is a way below 3nt. It seems at least some believe 4 shows that hand though.
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: KJ85 72 AQ84 KJ8
I guess this wasn't an interesting problem for people. My belief is that 2nt here is non-forcing and partner with a boring 11-12 count will probably pass, but since we are at the upper end of our range, this could cause us to miss a game. My initial thought ...

No 2 is forcing
