In a non-sanctioned game today, I opened 1 club and LHO bid 1NT with 16 points with one small club. Would this be legal in an ACBL game or must you have an honor in a 1NT overcall with a singleton? (Fortunately for them, they ended up in a suit contract)

Except for Mr. Moese,none of the answers addressed the OP's question. My answer is that no one who thinks of bridge as an old person's game would have this issue be one of their reasons.

it looks like they do not use Chicago scoring. I teach Chicago to my classes. Those who play rubber bridge are amazed how much simpler it is than they scoring they are used to.

“Tournaments with Thanksgiving in the middle would also benefit those members with school age children (as in our case) as children have off this entire week in most parts of America.”

I haven't lived anywhere where children got the Mondays and Tuesdays (and maybe Wednesdays) off before Thanksgiving. Is getting the entire week off more common than I thought?

While I disagree with some of the anti-ACBL rhetoric here from time to time, I believe that the BW forum is much less “obnoxious” than Mr. Lixwiler's statement here.

“All of us baseball fans understand e.g Chuck Knoblach E5”.

It was E4 since he could not throw properly from second base.

I saw it in today's paper. I thought it meant that Donald Trump declined to be at the table (appearing before the Judiciary Committee)

“Norman, I'm positive you smoke cigarettes in every means of public transportation since Hitler was the first who banned that.”

What did you write in response to the OP that violated the community guidelines? Something even more useless?

William S. Baring-Gould wrote “biographies” of both NW and SH, in which he posited that the former is the son of the latter. :-)

It may have been Isaac Asimov who wrote a story that Watson was a woman!
