Is using the rules (even obscure) always ethical?
It seems that WC players feel that waiving certain rights is appropriate, whether it is because they feel they will win anyway / they personally disagree with the way the rules are written / they believe it will disincentivise people from the game. Although the above is intended to summarise the views ...
Is using the rules (even obscure) always ethical?
I have two issues with this mentality. Both are related on the idea that I believe it is impossible to define what common sense is. (1) What happens when, in terms of common sense, world class players don't agree? I'm happy to be convinced that in OP's ...
Effect of the Recent ACBL Rules about opening 1NT with a singleton
The fact that you can remember this from when you were a beginner is in keeping with my belief that more people are put off bridge by over regulation, when compared to those that are saved from leaving due to the less regulation. This view runs contrary to many top ...

For me, it's all about how limited the hand that bids the 2NT is. If they're a passed hand: scrambling, but if it's a hand that failed to make an overcall it's Leb. This changes when partner has shown a strong hand, and we might need ...
2NT scrambling or something else?
Yes, I play it as Lebensohl with all but one partner. Getting good meta-rules (sorry Frances, general agreements) on 2NT sequences is tough.
Meaning of 3M after transfer to a minor suit?
I think it's a game before slam thing. Each of the following should end with a big IMHO.... Showing a side-suit allows separates 4M5m (Stayman then minor) against 4M6m (Minor then major) hands. This makes finding a slam in a minor easier and has associated to it a big ...
