I'm not a life master, but I don't mind playing them.

"David and Avon, and any of the rest of you who might be tempted, please refrain from any more of this type of article." This sounds like an order to me. Are you a moderator of this web site?
The weakness of lower strats
As a non-life master I rarely run into any issues of player behavior during open games, but it takes only one bully you DO know to drive you away from a regular club game after several incidents of unpleasant behavior. -Staring at you intently when it is your turn to ...
High level competitive auction- What went wrong?
West is a beginner, East is a novice, and they're playing Precision?
The weakness of lower strats
"In the five days of open pairs, there were respectively 8/25, 9/26, 7/23, 6/17, 3/18 C pairs (open/3000/1500) breaking 50%." Typically approximately 50% of pairs will finish above 50%. The numbers you give here indicate that 30% of C pairs finished above 50 ...

Cool Position After Creative Bidding
It is two sides of the same coin. A 3C bid in this position shows playing tricks on its own, not just ones inferred in partner's hand. Partner is going to count those tricks, too, which I think is your point. South has too much defense and too little ...
Cool Position After Creative Bidding
I don't see anything about this auction to particularly hope that North holds a sixth club and a very useful K. A contract in clubs is going to play a lot worse without these cards. Just trading the sixth club with West for a small diamond limits this hand ...
