Joshua Donn's bidding problem: Q Ax AKQJT9xx xx
Maybe a jump to 4 should show this hand. But like everyone else, I have not discussed it.
Score keeping should be disallowed in the semi finals/finals of all major national matchpoint type events
If we adopted Eric's suggestion, we might also adopt a stricter requirement for entering score. For example: 1. the contract must be entered and approved before the dummy is tabled 2. the score must be approved by both opponents
Danny Sprung's bidding problem: A72 KJ953 T4 J53
If your partnership normally does not opens light, double is reasonable. If your side can make a 3-level partial, the matchpoint difference between +100 and +200 on defense against 3NT or 4 is large, while the matchpoint difference between -400 and -550 is probably small.
Danny Sprung's bidding problem: A72 KJ953 T4 J53
My choice too.
Negative Double opposite 1NT opening
It depends on colors. Playing 12-14, when white-on-white, I would always reopen with a small dub in their suit. Vul-on-vul I am much more cautious.
Becker Wins Reisinger
Absolutely. They performed magnificently, and should be very proud of this accomplishment. I am sure we will hear much more from them in future.
Mark Lombard's bidding problem: --- Q954 Ax AKJT965

Jackie Matthews: 1936-2016
I am so sorry to hear that. Jackie always had a smile on her face; she was charming and sweet and caring. The ACBL is a poorer place today, but perhaps her spirit will infuse us all with some of her kindness and humanity.
David Libchaber's bidding problem: J9 KT AQJ864 KQ5
Open 1NT. Swap the J for the Q and then open 1 and rebid 2NT. If I had to take over from an expired player at this point in the auction, I would stretch to rebid 2NT.
Punish un-convicted team members?
This issue is contentious because we are conflating many topics into a single discussion. 1. The notion of types of cheating. Is cheating just cheating? Or are there different types of cheating of greater and lesser seriousness? 2. Proof of cheating. What constitutes proof? 3. Jurisdiction. Which organization(s) are ...
