about me

Learned weak NT to start then Acol, then SA, then Precision and then 2/1 (the easiest to learn as more of a treatment). Now try for 2/1 and Precision but often get stuck with SAYC.

Book i learned bidding most from Precision Bidding in Acol by Eric Crowhurst

Redoubled with overtricks:

2D+2, 3N+2, 4S+2, 2S+3, 1N+3, 1S+3, 2H+4, 4S+1

ACBL Tests Online NABC Event
This event is a good idea. Forget the complaints about the robots, if people don't like them then they won't play others will. No stratification is just unfair. No sections really reduce your chances. Playing boards against very few common opponents is just a killer, this is going ...

Daniel Lyder's bidding problem: Q AKT9xx --- KQJxxx
Nice but with no agreements, 3 (or anything NF) could get passed partner having one black ace with slam on. Partner can have 0 points and have game.
Alex Hudson's bidding problem: KJ54 --- T AKQJ8743
Balanced you only need 11, but unbalanced you need 12!? Usually need less with unbalanced. Anyways I don't see 3N making so 1 it is.
Lauritz Streck's bidding problem: AT32 KQ542 J7 K4
what more could partner want? they know we don't have 15 so cant be much better.
correct director call
faulty info-thought rho bid. Too bad for him. Wonder what he thought RHO bid?
Play Problem
Prealert? Nothing? Something else?
Yu while I understand why you alert such things the ACBL specifically says 1N is not alertable if 1N may contain 4 (if playing Flannery). So it is very confusing.
GCC chart question
Yes the same thing that allows Bergen allows min-splinters and splinters.
Why is it a "risk" to open a strong 1? You will have ways to GF later.
