Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
2way checkback over a 2Nt rebid.
I have played that for a very long time and it is definitely playable.
Best Hand Held After Partner Opens
The only ever time I played Fantunes (in a not very serious pairs game, approx. 10min after having bought Fantunes revealed), my partner saw me open 1D (natural 14+) and directly raised to 7N with his balanced 23-count.
Yet another ruling ..
I agree with Jon that such a rule change is unlikely to slow down the game. After all no one complains that one cannot take back a played *card*. I understand the point that bidding cards sometimes stick to each others. Thus, a reasonable rule may be that a bidding ...

Roger Gong and myself are looking for teammates for the 10K Swiss tomorrow. Please PM me if you're interested.
ATB - missed slam
With a min, I respond 4D to 4C (the 4H asks again -- 0, 1, 1+Q, 2, 2+Q). When partner shows a nonmin (in context), x AQxxx AQx Qxxx seems to be the least he can have. I can never find the red tens (or the CJ); opposite none ...
ATB - missed slam
I would bid this 1H-2C 3S[1=5=3=4]-4C[optional ace-ask] (planning to go back to hearts later) 5C[nonmin, 2+Q]-5D[kings?] (if none, nonmin partner almost certainly has both red queens, so the 6-level should be safe) 6C[no]-6H (only at imps...) as usual ...
Late Start in USA - Spain Match
Ahah... it's pretty funny that I copy-pasted that sentence and didn't notice the remark about 1st/2nd seat. Still, I think it is pretty clear that if 0+ responses are considered worth mentioning (I think even in a standard context most of us scrape a response with xxxxxx ...
Late Start in USA - Spain Match VIII A 1: Any method included on the ACBL Super-Chart is allowed in a Knockout match of 60 or more boards. The quote itself comes straight from the superchart.
Late Start in USA - Spain Match
I assume all boards we are discussing about come from some events played in the US. If they do, then even the ACBL super-chart (which also applies to the USBF team trials -- see their CoC) disallows "opening one bids which by partnership agreement could show fewer than 8 HCP in ...
Late Start in USA - Spain Match
David: I think it is clear that evidence of not following the rules in one event (the ACBL also has a prohibition against very light openers) carries over to other events (otherwise, how can we ever strip cheaters from all of their titles when we only have evidence of wrongdoing ...
