Very logical Michael. Except, people who make paper thin openings often look for any excuse to get out of an auction. A big mistake imho. If you have a reason to open, you have a reason to keep playing bridge later.

There is a reason behind the standard ordering. If you change it you may affect the competition when there is no withdrawal.

You will have 7 teams left
You have 3 rds left
You have 3 teams with 2 teams left to play
You have 4 team with 3 teams left to play.

If the 3 teams with 2 teams left haven't played each other you are fine. Can have a 3 way with extra boards.

If the 3 teams with 2 left have 2 teams who played each other; then to avoid a sit-out teams would have to play each other again. A nightmare imho.

Do you want science or a steal?
3N may cold, make on wrong lead or have no prayer.
Go with science you may find a spade stop but if none you give info to defense.
Blast to 3N no info may make possibly on wrong lead but you dont know what your chances are.

Having non-members pay extra could be a sound practise. I have no idea.

But please tell me how this helps to grow the game?

Unsurprisingly getting off topic but that's ok.
But does anyone know the name of the convention where double is for any 2-suiter but &?

Unless partner has no sense of humour and XX 4 when you run from 3N.

Polish club will not be allowed in Basic or Basic+ I believe.
It's funny almost the only non Standard or 2/1 system allowed is Precision.
But you have to open short 2. There is even a special rule in Basic to allow a Precision 2?

Why is so much being disallowed from Basic+ that is allowed under current GCC regulation. Seems a step backwards.

Oh right, I almost forgot Romex is allowed in Basic+. But no Montreal relay or <del>Roman club both</del> allowed in GCC.

Plagiarism is plagiarism. That what was plagiarized wasn't bridge content but filler is irrelevant. Either it is taken seriously or it isn't.

In countries where plagiarism is taken lightly you can lift whatever you want from a publication and use freely. In these countries you can also obtain copies of first run movies virtually for free.

I would think someone editing a magazine would think copyright is important.

Even one “mistake” of this kind would get you suspended at most reputable publications. These are repeated “mistakes”. I am surprised he still has a job.

There are some countries that don't respect copyright, but United Kingdom isn't one of them.

That's all we need alerting non-reverses because they are non-reverses.

At MP all he has to have to bid 4 is to think 4 will score better than 4. North does not have to expect to make 4.
The question is bidding 4S taking advantage of an incorrect explanation.

To find slams if they are really advanced they play Canape responses. I suspect this may be one of the lesser advanced players. tongue in cheek!

Agreed, is very hard to bid 7N and know your right. All the bidding is not likely to put you in the right spot without the right conventions.

Even if you can Find A in partners hand and A which you almost have, but you are still not there.

You need to know that both suits are likely (and you need decent odds to bid grand) going to run or in 7 of suit you need to know that that suit is running and partner may need to ruff something in other.

Even worse, it would have take less than 5 minutes to cite it. Though I don't think he could cite ones as long as he did, but what do I know?
