“Tell me right now…should F/N, F/S and others convicted of collusive cheating be allowed to play in our game? Skip the procedural niceties…yes or no?”

Nice article.

Corey Hart (the Canadian singer, not the baseball player).

No, I meant is it posted somewhere (physically)?

What if I told you it was the last board of a KO (actually District GNT). Due to CoC, 4 teams had to play in only one day. 1 session WL Swiss with 50% carryover, then 18 board final. You gave up your 5 IMP lead in 1st half, and we’re down 8 going into last 9 boards. Lots of flat boards with a possible positive part-score swing. So, you might still be down by a few. The possible part score swing could also be a loss - 4 makes on a 4-3, while you’re in 4 +150. Do you’re either +/- 1 or 2 or down up to 10.

I should say could make - don't know if I would. There WAS a weak 2 at my table. Stiff honor is 3:2 against (vs. stiff small).

It's not impossible that the long hand has 4 s, though, which would require playing s “normally.”

It'll actually make 5. Just can't take the safety play, but instead, cater to Q10xx in the short hand. Have to take the tap at T2, come to hand and lead a toward K9x. LHO must split. Win K and pass 9. Still have low in dummy to handle (potential) 2nd tap.

At our table, the oppenents were bidding:
P-(2S)-Dbl-(3S)
Dbl-(P)-4-(P).
Partner had to decide whether to raise or not. 4 wasn't in the picture, as the Responsive Dbl was minors oriented.

You can't get close to 3% in a MM account.

Too good to splinter, IMO.

Might be going for 800, but I would have bid 4 over 4.

Really need to know what 2N is.

I don't really disagree. However, as now stated (1 month @$7.99), it would pay for itself. Extending for more months would involve a short-term loss, so would need to be couched as an investment in the future, with a cost/benefit analysis.

Are you proposing that they receive 3 ACBL Bulletins as part of the $7.99 fee? I don't know the costs associated with the printing and mailing, but it seems possible ACBL could lose money on them, if so. Especially, given that half the fee is paid to the recruiter.

I play as Kit. Also, 1H-1N-2H-2S-2N-3H is better than direct 3H. Tends to also have interest in 3N.

I think this, like some of the other “Big Ideas,” seems like someone is just throwing stuff out hoping something will stick. Hopefully, this doesn't stick.

Does anyone who is proposing moving tournaments to clubs realize that many people play tournaments with people who don't live in their city? Is one supposed to travel to play in club games?
