That's funny, because I was just about to type that I was amazed at how many 2S bids there were :)

Once every two weeks. Unfortunately, neither my wife or I drive, and we've moved to Mesa, AZ, about 20+ miles from each of the two big bridge clubs in the area.

One would hope that in that unlikely event you'd kick them right to the curb as they deserve. Don't think you need another two card fees THAT badly.

I was semi-joking–that's a windmill I've tilted at here on more than one occasion (Multi to the GCC). I do think the convention charts need to be greatly liberalized.

Multi 2D to the General Chart/Open Chart is the first order of business.

To become a LM you must win an event (Gold Rush or better).

Open club games MUST allow at least the full GCC/Open Chart.

You get found to have cheated in an ACBL-sanctioned event–ANY event–you are barred for life. No second chances.

How about a Winter Goldmans, but scored at IMP pairs?

Many, many moons ago, I played in our District KO final of the Flight C GNT. We were down after each of the first three quarters, but with 16 boards to go we winnowed the deficit to 19 IMP's.

My partner and I had a huge final set. Looked like we were sure winners. Then our teammates came back to the table, and it became quickly apparent one of them had been just trying to get out of there as fast as he could. To the point where I strongly suspected deliberate bad play. I was furious. I can tolerate losing, but someone tanking just because THEY didn't think we had a chance…I walked out without saying a word to him. Never spoke to him again, would not play with him ever again (he wasn't a reg pd, but we had played every so often). He passed away a number of years ago.

Wish I hadn't been an idiot that held a grudge for that long.

That's a classic. Long out of print, but the authors released a PDF into the public domain. I have the PDF if you want it–PM me if so.

You're quite correct. Sorry folks–didn't catch that mistake.

Relates to a FB post I'd made in a bridge group. There were some people who thought this wasn't a 2C bid red/white.

You get caught cheating, you should be banned for life. Period, end of sentence, end of paragraph, no reinstatement ever.

Other–we need to blow up the WBF, so to speak, and start anew.

If North is a player of a level who should have known better, remove the double AND add a full-board penalty.

I gave my word that I wouldn't do that, sorry. It's my friend's call to make.
