ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
$375K ACBL Boondoggle & Hawaii Fallout!
I'm not going to defend $375K on a failed software implementation, but there is no way that Excel is the correct tool for the job.
Club policy legal?
On one occasion, yes. I predict a pattern.
Meckwell versu Cappelletti
I like the penalty double. There's never stasis in bidding systems. Without the double, the lower level of the 15-17 becomes good 14, then ordinary 14, etc. More and more hands that could go for a number, if the opponents double. In a related way, when I play with ...
Club policy legal?
Beginners are taught how to handle pre-empts. They are seldom taught how to detect psyches, partly because in these threads, I get the impression if the psyching pair is much more honest against peers. I'm not saying to ignore the opposition—I'll bid more optimistically against pairs I ...
Club policy legal?

How the average 'grass-roots' club players feel about psychs
Ogust is an alterable bid. If the opponents ask, I think "Ogust" is an even worse short description than usual, because most take that as showing an invitational (or better) hand. I think it's incumbent on your partner to say that while you are asking about opener's values ...
Zero Tolerance can work!
Repeat offenders. I'd even heard one director call to their table earlier, but not that it was ZT as opposed to revoke or lead out of turn.
What happens after a psych
I don't think a disclosed psyche agreement is a psyche in the ACBL sense. It is another possible alternative meaning of a call. My experience is that most psyches are UNDISCLOSED partnership agreements.
Reasons to attend the Eastern States Regional (NYC)
I played in the New Yorker for the first time last December. I liked it. Although lighting at a couple tables wasn't good. And I got a room below $200.
