The treatment of 2c-2d-3h showing a d/h hand swings the decision to opening 2c. Hope partner doesn't bid 2h.

The treatment of 2c-2d-3h showing a d/h hand makes the 2c opening more appealing.

Hastert's sentence was only for illegal bank transfer structuring. The child molestation charges could not be prosecuted because they took place beyond the statute of limitations.

To all the doublers and two heart bidders- how are going to feel when your partner is forced to bid two spades on a five card suit ?

I am puzzled about the 75% vote for pass. Its MP and we have at least 21 HCP and a decent 5 card suit. . How can we be content collecting 50 or 100 defending?

Does 2h show 6? Even if it does, why not rebid the good clubs?

Sorry Clarence Thomas, but THIS was a high tech lynching. Yesterday morning, any blowhard with an internet connection felt the urge to see their words in print. If they had a chance to think before they wrote, they might have wondered why a 67 y/o person at the pinnacle of their profession with an infinite backlog of clients would need to cheat. All they needed to do was wait a few hours for the details to be published.

This hand is from the second day of the LM pairs. South had AKx Kxxx xxxx xx. The panel agrees North has a pass. Bidding would be especially egregious if there was a BIT by South.

Prime 20 point hands warrent a stronger bid than ordinary 13 point hands. Otherwise many slams might be missed.

I showed garbage by not cue bidding over 3s. Now partner is demanding I bid slam with club control.

South gets 20% as he doesnt have an opening hand IMO but North has too much slam potential with 9+ card fit to go for low level nv penalty. .

This hand was from Dist. 13 Flight GNT which Mark's team won for second year in a row. I had this hand without the 2h bid and bid 4nt after 2c-2s-3d to avoid this problem. Opener bid 5s and I bid 6nt. Opener had everything but ace of hearts . 6 of minor fails on ruff due to 7-1 heart break.

I switched from OKB to BBO about five years ago because I was able to find a wider group of “friends” on BBO, where I now have a congenial flight A caliber game nearly every night.

The biggest drawback of BBO in my experience is the conduct of many of the “non friends” who occasionally join our table. Their lack of civility is off the charts.

Recently when we had a hard time filling our table a person who claimed to be 12 (!!) years old joined us. Within a few hands this “youngster” was giving us greybeard GLM's and DLM’s lessons in a rather adultish manner , if you get my drift :)

I have had poor experience with Unusual 2nt and Michaels on intermediate hands and would be interested in everyone's opinion.
