Instanbul would be a BIG preference over China.

I believe in opening in my longer suit. Then, if possible, I jump in my 5-card major to show 6-5 and insufficient values to reverse.

E.G., 1C - P - 1S - P
3H

Many of the ills that come with trying to fine tune strata of competitions by age, masterpoint total, sex, residence, etc. would be cured if we would just SHUFFLE, DEAL and PLAY.

The trouble with this is that the Director tried to interact with the Seniors as if they are adults. If she treated them as children, she would be more successful.

It's just a stupid bid.

Histrionics are permitted at the poker table. They are not permitted at the bridge table. Or, if they are, they represent gamesmanship which, I believe, tarnishes our game.

When will we be told what the opening lead was?

Very few pairs get to sit N/S all the time because it requires a note from a doctor. In other words, sitting N/S is never a preference, it's always a necessity. After those seats are assigned, the rest of the entries are jumbled on the table into two piles: seeded and non-seeded. Each pair grabs one and THAT's where they sit. There's a smaller than 50% chance that they will grab a N/S entry because a few (2 or 3) N/S seats are already medically assigned.
I always prefer to sit E/W because it makes me feel better to move once-in-a-while and I don't like having to use Bridgemates. So the director may indulge me and pre-assign an E/W.
Some players may object to not being able to sit N/S all the time. But the other players will appreciate it.

3C has to be forcing. I clearly can't have oodles of clubs. Hopefully pard can jump in diamonds over 3C or re-cue spades, which would cause me to bid a diamond slam.

I used to have many reasons to play bridge. After more than sixty years of tournament play, I've exhausted every one of those reasons. I'd give it up in a nano-second if my wife would stop playing.

Maybe the best reason is that I'm too old and too untalented to join a rock band.

“Assistant District Recorder”?

All I can say is, “Let me at'em, Chief. Let me at'em.”

I won't play four-way transfers. Prefer minor suit Stayman.

I remember when the Macabiah (sp?) Games were held in Israel and many ACBL members participated, there was extensive coverage in the ACBL Bulletin about the tournament. Why would these Huntsman Games be any different?

Obviously the WBF feels no sense of urgency to schedule sites and dates for World Championships. I would say that will result in NBO's dropping out of the WBF and withdrawing support from it. Maybe they don't care. Maybe no one should care.

How about posting Butler numbers for the major KO Championships? I would think many would be interested in that.

Please not China. It seems as if every world bridge event is in China.

Who is guaranteeing that the TD is a “creepy old bloke”? Inviting someone to be your friend does not make one a sexual predator.
