Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Help, please. Interesting or humorous deals wanted.
There's always the Duke of Cumberland hand (also used in Ian Fleming's Moonraker where N-S are cold for 7C on a combined 8 count (with declarers RHO having a 31 count). https://www.bridgehands.com/D/Duke_of_Cumberland_Hand.htm
Andy Muenz's bidding problem: A KT98532 T8632 ---
No one who has answered so far would qualify as a BBO robot which bid 2 hearts and played there opposite my KJxxx, J, AJxx, Axx. Making 4 but still worth 61%.
ACBL Big Ideas - Augmenting Rank/Point Structure
About 20 years ago in the ACBL bulletin (I think it was Jan or Feb 1999) there was an article about new ranks above LM based in part on merit rather than strictly masterpoints. For example, the next rank might have required at least 750 mp and at least one ...
Proper Framing a Director Call for a Teachable Moment: UI

Bergen 4-Diamond bid
Your way makes more sense since the reason for bidding to the 4 level with a weak hand is based on the law of total tricks which is useful in a competitive auction (which is likely when responder has a weak hand). When responder has a limit raise it becomes ...
3-way KO match
Danny, there will be a nationally televised coin flip on February 4. Oh, you meant after a 3-way KO...
Would you call for the director?
Gene, I respectfully disagree with part of your assertion. While I don't think this was an appropriate instance to call a director, I do think there are times to call the director in a club game over issues such as UI. Part of when to do this involves knowing ...
What do you play against multi 2!D?
DBL=a hand that can overcall in a major (possibly the same major that opener has) 2H/2S=Good hand with C/D. 3C/3D=natural and weak (7-13 points).
