Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Hesitation Problem
Based on the hand and bidding diagram, I assumed no one was vulnerable.
Tanking to get a read
When I tank as declarer, I try to either close my eyes or stare at the dummy's cards. I don't want to try to get a tell from the opponents and I don't want them to even think I'm trying to do so. Had a similar ...
Class of player
Depends on the definition of "eight". You may be using a language very similar to English where "eight" means (1+1+1+1+1+1+1).
ACBL Competition and Conventions Committee
Some open clubs do have members. One relatively close to me charges $25/year for membership, but members pay $1 less per session in entry fees. Might have other benefits such as voting rights. Don't know.
Under current ACBL Open/Open+ chart rules, is it legal to open this hand at the 1-level in 1st seat?
It's legal to open it. I would change my description to describing the distribution and saying that it either has 10-15 HCP or conforms to the rule of 19. Edit add: Since your 1D bid is artificial, it would only be legal on the Open chart if the hand ...
WBF alert procedure

South is a passed hand. Why should North, with his 11 count, raise? When is 1C 2+? Only when exactly 4432 or with other distributions, too?
Expected turnout for the Soloway KO in San Francisco?
There's a solution to Adam's problem that is so simple that I'm surprised no one else has suggested it yet. All he needs to do is buy round trip plane tickets for all of his family members, book two nights for them at the host hotel and ...
Director Ruling: First ever situation
Peg, please read the following excerpt from Law 68 of the 2017 (current) edition of the Laws, particulary subsection (b). D. Suspension of Play After any claim or concession, play is suspended. 1. If the claim or concession is agreed, Law 69 applies. 2. If it is doubted by any ...
American Bridge Association points and ACBL masterpoints
The first time I had cause to convert points was at least nine years ago. I don't particularly care if this meets your definition of "far longer". I don't know how far back beyond that the conversion was conceived.
