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
This hand has the playing strength for either 3 or 2. I am not thrilled about reversing into such moth-eaten hearts, but at least I am showing 9 of my cards. If I rebid 3, I have only shown 6.
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?

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 ...
Punish un-convicted team members?
One difference is that in college sports, a player can transfer to another school if his first school is banned from play and sanctions against his school don't travel with him.
Punish un-convicted team members?
I agree with Jeff G. Catching cheats is hard and if we want a process for adjudicating accusations of cheating that approaches fairness (I do), it takes a lot of resources to build an unassailable case, even against brazen cheats. I'd like NBOs to be motivated not to send ...
Jannes van 't Oever's bidding problem: QJ43 J4 A642 T95
After partner removes my double, I plan to raise 3 to 4 and 3 to 4.
Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: QTx x ATxx Q8xxx
i am in the camp that thinks penalty double is on the hungry side at IMPs. To show a worthwhile profit against 3X, you need to beat them 2+ tricks. The penalty doubler has 2.5 defensive tricks (admittedly with some chances for an extra). Double is implicitly asking ...
