Marty, you must be playing weak NT if you consider a balanced 15 a maximum.

Greensboro, NC is $8 per player. Game locations are free, per se, but a recreation center charges $1 per player for usage.

Eric, that was true because a team needs compatible teammates that are all pulling together. Often top pairs do not particularly care for each other. Everyone wants to play with friends, not just good players, regardless of the event.

Eric, many years ago in the U.S. our international teams were selected by picking the top 3 pairs. This seldom, if ever, made a good team.

Certainly at least playing in the qualification process should be required. Otherwise, a top pair or team might not attend and “assume” they would get selected anyway. The only exception might be if unable to play in qualifying was due to emergency situations.

Rich, I agree that STaC's should be banned. How can we award overall points when, at least around here, each game plays different hands. No way they can be compared. Only fair way is use same hands everywhere, and maybe have scores sent to one location and matchpoint across the entire field.

Michal, to see if I was totally wrong, and if anyone felt 4 was a reasonable call. Obviously not.

Peg, I agree totally. I must admit that I was shocked (looking at my hand) when partner won the spade lead, cashed 2 trumps and tabled the rest of his hand.

West has described his hand very preciously (10-11+ with a spade stopper). Any decision now should be East's, not West's.

Great article Chris. I agree that more of the dues should go to the recruiting director/teacher/club. That is who is doing the recruiting and they deserve a bigger piece of the pie.

David, would partner cue 5 after you bypassed cueing in 's? You could have QJ10xxxx of spades.

But Steve, the OP was BRIDGE books to read, not books to read.

I like 4, showing 3 card support for both and let partner decide if they want to go further. Being 5-5 in the majors my 2 AQ's may not be as good as they look.

I still have my original copy from way back when, autographed by Jerry.

Agree, Machlin's book is a must read. Is there any chance of getting this republished?

Peg, I agree completely. Am I the only one that finds this “comparative call” nonsense like a walk thru never never land? Deciphering the Dead Sea Scrolls is easier.

I would have opened it 7 days a week and twice on Sundays.

If South made one more try for the grand knowing they were off a key card, he got what he deserved!!! Pard does not have to have 5 diamonds, so you could be on a hook even if he has the ace.

Sounds good Henk. My preferred method is 3C=weak minors, 3D=good minors, 3H=weak majors and 3S=good majors. (5-5 in all cases)
