ACBL Ranking

Alertable or not
Hi Debbie, this was an ACBL event. And the players were intermediates. One didn't know it was a splinter bid (I'll let you guess which one :)
To Show or Not To Show?
I still like the banter at the club level where the disparity of strength of players is most extreme. Yes, it slows the game down. And, yes, results can be overheard (although the age of the average ACBL player is over 70 and probably can't hear. I think clubs ...
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: A4 5432 AQ65 752
Why would partner bid 2 as you have already denied them....not sure if both of you haven't denied them. Over a dbl he will retreat to 3 or bid 3. If pass, then lead a .
Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: --- KQ85432 --- QT8654
I accidentally chose 4 (missaw the problem) and changed to 4. And I thought, wouldn't it be great was some type of super Michaels in distribution only with 5+ and long minor? Of course you'd get to use it once every 20 years or so ...
ATB: Our first hand
I liked the auction. Made sense from all sides. Could have made too...tough break!
Yehudit Hasin's bidding problem: Q AJ853 QT83 AKJ
I like doubling and if they bid 4, I'll double again. 2 on an anemic suit and with good support for the minors seems to distort the hand and makes it more difficult to know what double of 4 would (penalty or take out?) unless you ...
Yehudit Hasin's lead problem: xx Kx Axxx T98xx
Seems like a trump lead was the easiest. You know what to expect in dummy so you will have one more chance to get it right. lead would be a distant choice and A should be put in the next deck.
RIP Bill Wickham
Truly a wonderful and unique person. I had the pleasure of playing with and against him and he always seemed to have a small smile as if he knew something more. He will be missed and the world of bridge will miss him too.
Obvious suit preference, attitude or count - trick 1
This one seem too easy but then I never look that deeply into these situations. Partner has 3 spades (assuming declarer followed) and doesn't like the suit so he/she has 3 cards to signal what shift to make.
Club Ruling
Why would we alert bids that are just bridge unless we have specific agreements in place? Whether 2 or 2, it's a good raise. And, generally, 2 tends to be the preference Qbid. At least, I don't remember using 2 before but I ...
