DBL seems so much more flexible especially with ELC 2 available.

I felt that Double was better than 4N at the table to keep in focus. Granted, partner should expect a robust balanced hand from me. Wa particularly uncomfortable doubling with a Void. 4N had unexplored ambiguities (could be last place to play, or 2 places to play).

Unfortunately partner chose this time to open an eccentric 3=2=6=2 hand that made 6 our way perfect. A defensive lapse Allowed 4 doubled to come in. In spite of that start, we did enough on the remaining 7 boards to squeak out a win.

Congratulations, Jay! Your turn to set the agenda is well earned from all you've accomplished for bridge. Consider the common game, fast results, electronic bulletins for regionals, and your work with the Ed Foundation (getting the governance righted and led forward to where it can be a force). Your innovations using computers to fill out half tables in clubs, the ReaCH program trial, and the experimental regional pairs games allowing clubs in districts other than the regional to participate have opened new opportunities for clubs, units and districts.

You even participate in Bridge Winners curating the Webmaster Forum.

You are definitely a force for positive, forward change for the ACBL.

I hope you will empower club owners and teachers to maximize their growth and spur a jump in enrolling younger players. We need your vision and energy throughout our ecosystem. Help us grow.

Under the circumstances I have a flexible hand so I prefer a flexible bid.

Would you feel less annoyed if you opened 1N 14-16?

Benoit, Why should 4 deny A or K? Shouldn't 3 do that? What do you use 3 for in this case…

Nonsense - got compass directions wrong on my iPhone. Can't imagine East bidding this way without AQJxxx and K. Will duck to my 9, then K, small to A. If trumps 1-4, low trump toward J. If trumps (32), 4x clubs for a pitch. Will concede to 6-3-1-3 and to an East who can't recognize a weak jump overcall.

Expect East KQJxxx and K (but not 5 carded). Will duck and A and to the J. East something like KQJxxx Qx(x) Kxx(x) x

Who was it that said with a game try, bid game and try to make it?? I think that applies here.

Peg, do you have a way for responder to differentiate among 12-14, 15-17 and 18-19 balanced non fit hands?

Partner should be 15-17 for the 3N bid - no fast arrival in NT. Don't understand a pass here.

We play a free bid at the 2 level is a 16-19/20 “minimum”. Partner is expected to raise on 5 Support Points with a fit. This hand tests whether one is an optimist or pessimist. While it would seem that the Q is wasted, I generally find partner with something worthwhile opposite, or useful distribution. I'll raise. If partner goes on to game they might get some good card reading practice! :-)

I will establish the GF with 3. Then 3 over 3 should be GF. Perhaps control bidding from there….

Couldn't disagree more. California Districts have it in their own hands to enable same for their clubs. Separate trial.

Does 2 promise 6??

1600 people have signed up. Let's find out where they are from and what their experience level is. Maybe we can wait for data and fact, instead of extrapolating from past experience that is of questionable relevance.

Hard headed realists know that they need facts for an informed decision, right?
