Why are there round robins in the World Team Championships?
This is by far the best format. There are basically two issues you want to avoid: 1. Disparate strength of schedule, where one team has a much easier path to victory than another. This is the problem in straight KO, where the "draw" is hugely important. It's also a ...
If you play professionally
Seems obvious that most pros do on occasion. Usually the partner is one or both of: 1. Close friend or family or bf/gf. 2. A player of comparable level. Note that the second case may offer future financial benefits (a major win to impress clients, a possible future partnership ...
4-3-2-4
Surely 3nt shows that hand? Like a 2nt bid, with extras, but not enough to drive past game?
4-3-2-4
3 for me, which shows exactly this hand. Obviously opener cannot have four hearts (would rebid 1) so what does 3 show in this context? Most 4324 or 4315 hands with decent hearts are bidding 2nt so it is not showing "any three hearts" -- it seems logical ...
Why the uproar about Cell Phones? Are they really THE problem?
I think the real reason has to do with the average age of bridge players. For any "anti-cheating" rule we have to weigh the inconvenience to honest players against the amount by which we can reduce cheating opportunities. Bridge players tend to underestimate the inconvenience of not carrying a phone ...
Eligibility for events restricted by masterpoints - too lenient or just right?
Admittedly I am not a fan of these 10k events. It seems like they have some mix of plausible purposes: 1. Act as a "consolation event" for those who failed to qualify in a big event. But the scheduling is not always optimal for this, nor is it really clear ...
Where did you learn to play bridge?
I learned at a summer camp when I was in junior high (around 12 years old). It was a mathematics camp (not anything organized by ACBL) but enough other kids played that we often had a game. Later I played in other similar camps (in fact pretty much all the ...
2way checkback over a 2Nt rebid.
This method is very oriented towards majors. After 1nt rebid this is okay -- you are usually looking for game and not slam, and you have the three level for minor suit slam tries (while still being able to stop in 3nt). But for 2nt rebid many continuations are slam inquiries ...
Open Toronto Discussion Thread
The problem here is that one of the conditions agreed upon when "drop-ins" were installed was that they would not reduce the number of qualifiers from the original event field (i.e. they are "extra" teams, not replacing teams that would have otherwise made the next day). My impression is ...
Eligibility for events restricted by masterpoints - too lenient or just right?
It does seem like the limited events should disallow anyone who has won an NABC+ event, or played in the Bermuda Bowl/Venice Cup, or won a WBF event. Otherwise it is not really clear why we have them at all... Then again, it is not really clear to me ...
