Poll Regarding Drop-Ins from Soloway to Blues
There are a great many national events, some more prestigious than others. Choices have to be made. A 3 day event is just that. Some of the best players lose on day 1. A bye to day 2 is just wrong. If players get through Fri-Sat of the Soloway but ...
Sleeping on the couch, again
Very interesting hand. While I love Annie, I think she maybe should figure out that you didn't lead the K of D and therefore likely don't have the Q and also that you had a problem determining how many spades she held. (I also believe you will figure ...
Poll #2: Replacement Team
Please see my comment regarding poll #1
TRYING AGAIN - POLL #1 - Eligibility of team that has lost 1 or 2 players
I voted against this entire procedure as a member of the USBF board. I remain against it. I am not willing to select from any of the choices, all of which I think are bad. In one way or another, they all poison the trials.
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
Not mentioned much is the significance of north doubling 4D. This means that IF west has the Ace of diamonds, he thinks he has 13 tricks in spades, knowing that a winning diamond finesse will not be a winning option. Hard to believe that he bid 7S in the hope ...
Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I fail to see how the hesitation is relevant given the comment by East. East obviously doesn't have the Ace of diamonds and he just told you that he may have screwed up since his partner may not have the ace either. That's good enough for me to ...
Jim Munday Wins Another BBO Individual Practice Session!
And I have no problem with people playing whatever sort of game they might enjoy. But don't call it a national bridge championship. And don't deceive people buying entries that they will be playing bridge when in fact is they wish to succeed they need to learn this ...
Jim Munday Wins Another BBO Individual Practice Session!
Everything you say is correct except that this exercise is a new game that should not be called "brdge." The ACBL should tell the people forking over their $40 that the game they are signing up for is not bridge. There can be a brief description of the actual game ...
Jim Munday Wins Another BBO Individual Practice Session!
I looked through some of the hands that the winner played. He did a very good job of adapting to the COC and taking advantage of them. This is a game that requires a combination of skill and luck. But it isn't "bridge." There are 2 major problems in ...
Meckwell Win Blue Ribbon Pairs
This may have some validity, but you are shifting the conversation from to the usual COC and away from the issue at hand.
