Rate North's bidding
What does not bidding a negative double have to do with the strength of the third seat opener?
Club policy legal?
Yes, Ron, they’re both part of the game (that’s probably what I was thinking of when I told the OP “psyches are part of the game”). They are, however, nowhere near equal. Knowing how to, and executing a squeeze is a NECESSARY part of the game, whereas psyches ...
Club policy legal?
Ron's false equivalency notwithstanding, psyches are part of the game, like it or not. Most people don;t use them very often (I think I've done it a total of 5 times in my life), while some will do it as often as they can get away with ...
Club policy legal?
I don't need a "tactical bid" to get a decent board against a novice pair, and I don't want a top if arrived at in that fashion. That being said, I don't think there is, or should be, any law against it. They're part of the ...

What are your pet peeves?
Yeah, I guess bidding 3 spades (weak) with the second hand or showing a limit raise with the first (Randy's example) would be just way too normal and pedestrian. I like to know what's in partner's hand (and for partner to know what's in mine), but ...
What are your pet peeves?
A weak, 5 card raise with shortness somewhere (no 5-3-3-2 hands) and no defensive tricks outside of spades.
What are your pet peeves?
I've been doing it for 20 years. It takes maybe 3-4 seconds longer, but I've never screwed up the bidding box, and more importantly, never accidentally dropped 20 bidding cards on the ground. Which, incidentally, is the main reason I do it (as opposed to looking cool). If ...
