RIP Harold Feldheim
Harold was indeed a character, but he always had a good joke to tell, and was a great family man, caring deeply for his children and grandchildren. We played as teammates several times at east coast regionals, and I was proud to have called him a friend. He will be ...
Bridge World Standard: Does Anyone Actually Play It?
Chris: Usually every 4th or 5th regional I attend, I "run into" two good Flight A players who have never played together, and, rather than argue endlessly about "systems", agree to play BWS -- more power to them. Quite frankly, I believe many of the last two series of amendments to ...
Overcall with weak suit?
Gary: I am in complete agreement with your first paragraph.
Hasta la vista, visa?
Cameron: For both philosophic and political reasons, although I would NEVER go to China, I agree that there is real risk for citizens of certain countries to go there (particularly with the US-China trade war). That being said, ANY country should have the right to bar a convicted felon from ...
A "Thank You" Would Be Nice !
Don: So what if there is a "lawsuit in the wind"?? Case law has well established (including a decision by the US Supreme Court) that private organizations can discipline their own members as they choose, provided they do not otherwise violate the law (i.e, discrimination based upon a "prohibited ...

The Three-card Limit Raise: There must be a better way
Gil: I don't know if there is a reasonable solution to the problem you pose. A former partner of mine and I, before the introduction of the current chart system, used to play 2 over 1 as non-forcing, and 1nt in response to a major as forcing and unlimited ...
Steve: I agree wholeheartedly with going back to a 9:30 start time. In addition, as a purely voluntary organization, we incur few expenses, and coffee and bagels is not too much for ask for at breakfast time. It does NO GOOD to save a small amount of money if ...
ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
Randy: I cannot speak for Regional rates, although I believe they are the same. At the Unit 140 Sectional (central NJ) two weekends ago, the rates for ACBL directors were $159., $169., and $189., depending on their experience level. Rates for local directors, if permitted by the ACBL, are somewhat ...
Should This Type of Action be Recorded?
AGREED - One of the chief purposes of having a highly questionable action recorded is to prevent any such pattern occuring on a regular basis...How else is a Recorder to know????
