Sorry Benoit, I see very little gain in switching meanings of a bid that occurs once every two years.

Love David's post.

I would add that pursuing mastery of this game has a spillover effect in other areas of my life:

1. Im a better problem solver
2. I have an immense amount of patience with my co-workers
3. I am slow to anger at the table and also in my interpersonal relationships.

Misread, sorry. 6 still fits: 0/3 keys. But thats a lot of bidding and I have an easy signoff. Hope that answers your question.

I play 4 is a real splinter (13+ hcp) with lighter splinters going through 3.

When we have known shortness, steps “recycle” at 5N with a void. So 5N =1/4, etc..

6 should be 2 keys w/o but clearly that's impossble, so I'll expect an odd number.

What are our minimum requirements for a splinter? It's pretty tough to develop hands that don't give us at least a reasonable play for 7.

Thanks Debbie - nice write-up. I met a few of the players in Atlanta and I think the future of USA Bridge is very bright.

That being said - who is taking the lead on publicity? The League? The USBF? The WBF? I would imagine that the hometown papers would take an interest in one of their kids competing as far away as China, if not on a more regional or larger basis.

If someone has a press release, I have a contact at one of the big dailies. Please PM me.

And my room at the Hilton (short walk across a connecting skybridge) was nicely furnished.

Kudos to the League for giving us options!

There were plenty of washrooms in Atlanta and they werent terribly far to walk to. This is a serious matter and may be a topic for the Atlanta PD in addition.

Present count but please explain how this is remotely material to the problem.

Yeah the late night snacks have been dee-lish. Pretending to think hard for four hours makes me hungry.

The music has been awesome too. There was a cool little bluegrass trio playing last night.

We discussed it later. West thought a x of 3 created a FP, East did not and was showing extras with x.

28 teams works nicely for two 14 table BAM sections (instead of the typical 13 pair section).

Unless you lengthen the movement, all teams in a section wont play each other.

Yes, there was a BIT. Doubler has Axxxx AQxxx void (!) AKx.

The subject hand pulled.

A competent director polled 13 of this players peers, and 11 (!) Pulled to 3. No adjustment.
