I thought I check it was a match point problem. Certainly a one level one heart for us does not have to be an opening bid

With Reverse Smith being played and high low given suggesting a shift combined with viewing dummy and the play so far it seems to me J is the only logical play. What else could North be suggesting?

Certainly North would not given the high low in clubs if he could stand and want the Spade shift in my view.

You sound like your on the ACBL BOD. lol

In some cities hotels are the best option and many players still like to play people from different areas. Charging more money probably won't solve the problem with hotels. Their business model involves selling hotel rooms. Yes weddings and parties may rent their space for short periods of time but the cost are far more than you can imagine.

My point was the constant increasing in selling masterpoints in many different ways is having an impact on Sectional and Regional tournaments and this is a consequence that needs to be carefully consider for the long term.

Yes the BOD can create even more events to solve their financial problems but some plans will impact other areas of our game and organization.

It matters to organizations trying to run tournaments. If people do not stay in the hotels they don't want you.

At our upcoming Atlanta Labor Day Regional our first event is a seeded OPEN KO and Flight A in this event will make. Lou Bluhm Knockouts is always one of the toughest KO regional events anywhere. Many of the better amateur players encourage the local players who want to get better that this is a cheap but very good way to improve their game. Every once in awhile the amateurs win and we have resisted the pressures to weaken the challenge.

I understand that our approach will not work everywhere but for all of you saying you want the challenge this is your chance

Instead of a course this is more of a two way discussion so I was thinking that the speaker being able to show a hand for discussion and later show the actual hand might make it go faster and be easier to see. It takes uptime putting up the whole hand after each discussion.

hoping to find an easy to use template for posting hands

Thanks this is not a full blown teaching course but more of a two way discussion before the game handled by several of the local higher level players. Handouts and writing on the board but I thought using a video display might make it easier.

Sorry, the edit function is no longer available. However ,the bottom line is that we were offering sone free plays, food and lectures to get people to come and stay in the hotel.

The tournament is large but many are locals and many stay with Atlanta friends. We need to sell more room nights to keep our hotel happy. We need to sell about 5 more rooms and this is our latest gimmick.

We copied this off the ACBL email blast but it did not format well here.

I do apologize and I have often made mistakes in my posting on Bridgewinners. However, before posting on this site on this issue I did a search and the prior article did not appear. It seemed like it was fresh news. I will further confess I just look at the site about 1 or 2 times a week. All my bridge partners can tell you about worst mistakes I have made.

I totally missed that thread and when I put in a search here it didn't come up for me.
However I have been watching for years hoping the case would be solved. It was always interesting to play against him.
