Financial fraudsters are targeting ACBL entities
Michael: Of course they are. However, I don't know see why when the ACBL knows it's been "targeted", and all Unit officer information is available on the ACBL website, why they can't share a warning to Districts/Units.
Financial fraudsters are targeting ACBL entities
I am President of Unit 140. What is much more scary is that after my Treasurer received one of these scam e-mails, I e-mailed the ACBL, and was told by Mitch Hodus that several such attempts were made on the ACBL directly. It was MY SUGGESTION that he send the ...
Bad Judgment or Bad Luck?
Len: I am not enamored with the 1n opening. Hand is very suit oriented(3 bullets, and a heart suit with 4 of the top 7, which "makes up" for QJ clubs doubleton). If you follow the reasoning in Kit's book, "Matchpoints", this is a hand that should NOT ...
Fairfield Regional, Woodbridge Sectional
Ilan: I am President of Unit 140 - TY for your interest in our Sectional. Although we guarantee partners for the matchpoint events on Friday and Saturday, we do not do so for the Swiss. However, I suggest you go to our website,, download and print a copy ...
1NT or 1S??
Perhaps it is phraseology, but the deciding factor for me in opening the 1st hand 1s is that it is EXTREMELY suit-oriented, with a small doubleton, and Aces and Kings. I I agree with the comments on the second hand that Qxx,KQ, and a broken spade suit make the ...
Opener's splinters after a 2-over-1
Jeff: I understand the poll choices -- I did NOT vote in the poll, but 3 question marks (rather than 3 small x's) is the way to do posit this question.
Opener's splinters after a 2-over-1
I think whoever is the partner of the person who opened an 8-loser 8 count COULD NEVER SPLINTER, since he can't trust his pard's openers. I wouldn't open that hand even if I added the Q-d, instead of a small one.
What is the best treatment ?
I am not certain there is a "best" treatment. However, it is important to have a system that both shows and denies a stopper. In my partnerships, I play that any bid is a response to stayman WITH a stopper.
What is you plan?
Len: Under the conditions you posited (mp's), I voted for 2n, as I would be reluctant to "pinpoint" a D lead. At imps, I think 3c is superior, as partner can bid 3n with Qxx of d, in addition to the reasons you enunciated
The Death of Teams
Michal: Times have radically changed from 25-40 years ago. Regional attendance would be SIGNIFICANTLY down if Gold Rush events were offered with some frequency. In addition, smaller regionals rarely have enough teams to warrant a KO. As a Tournament Chair, table count is a priority, and so is catering to ...
