I prefer to play 2H as the relay in this auction but that wasn't available in this partnership.

At a local sectional Swiss I had three consecutive matches end up with the same score, 0-0. The second match included the same psychic spade opening at both tables.

ACBL regulations only require convention cards at Sectionally or higher rated events not at club games.

We've been playing it about twice a month for the last three years and my partner also plays it with someone else once or twice a week. I can only recall one complaint and that was from someone with whom I have a history of bad blood.

For the first year or so, we pre-alerted and provided a defence. We still provide a defence but no one's interested in our pre-alert anymore since they all know what we play.

At one of the clubs there was a pair who had to stop playing their system (not a transfer system) because there were too many complaints to the so I think people will complain if they have a problem.

I don't know anything about green eggs and especially ham :-)

I have permission to play transfer responses with a couple of my partners at two of our local clubs. At first we would give a defense to the opponents but now no one even cares, they all know what to do.

Politically they continually endorse the most extreme left party in the country (other than the communist party), Meretz, which gets about 6-8% of the vote on average. It's one of the lowest circulation newspapers in the country.

And I would assume Yehudit reads the hebrew edition which is more extreme than the english edition.

Mahmoud Abbas's security is provided by the Israeli army when he travels in Judea and Samaria so I don't think the palestinians would have a problem
