Ronald Kalf's bidding problem: AKJxx Jxx KQTx x
I felt forced to abstain to your query, and a found your proposed game tries much to restrictive.
Suit Agreement and Slam Move after 2NT Open
I agree 100% with Richard. Most experienced pairs play Goldman slam tries in this sequence.
Support double vs. suit raise after 1m-(1!h)-1!s-(2!h)
Timo: I agree completely. I also like to double with extra values, and without 3 spades.
Video footage of kids playing bridge?
Sue: They really did, Sue -- they are great kids. We had the second largest Youth contingent @ the Toronto NABC (2nd only to Simi Valley), all due to the great efforts of our Education Chair, Barbara Clark, who raised the funds necessary to send them; we are lucky to have her ...

District 8 Georgia Heth Elected ACBL President
Although the position is more "ceremonial" than substantive, I have had the opportunity to interact with our new President when she chaired a Disciplinary Appeal before the ACBL, when I represented our Unit (140, central NJ). I found her to be extremely intelligent, very knowledgeable about the subject matter, and ...
RIP Ken Cohen
Rich: I do agree that Ken will be missed. I found it absolutely amazing how he could win with some of his students (many of whom could barely follow suit). Although I never got to play against Barry Crane, Ken was, by far, the best matchpoint player against whom I ...
