Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Something seems wrong with the rules, no rectification needed
But this is very hard to be certain of at the table. Let's say you're overcaller and trying to do the right thing. Obviously you can't stop for a poll. I am less concerned with hanging the vagrants than with the idea that with certain agreements you ...
Suggested Defenses Against a MOSCITO type 1D or 1H opening
David Burn, "Has it won any medals?". In ACBL land we're forbidden from trying and finding out if it's built in-efficiencies are enough to cover for my sub-optimal judgement and technique. It sure would be nice to be able to try, though. Regardless, there's a fundamental dishonesty ...
Suggested Defenses Against a MOSCITO type 1D or 1H opening
I'm in ACBL land, so I have only been able to play MOSCITO in home games. That breaks my heart, as it's so much fun. What I play against it, and suggest against those openings, is simple: If they open 1 (showing 4+ s), then x - t ...
Opener's Rebids After 1!D - 2!C
I've been thinking about playing 1 - 2 as NF, just a club bid, in another context. It's a very interesting idea.
Opener's Rebids After 1!D - 2!C
In an aggressive style where 1nt openings are generally 10-13, and we open our 10's, 1 - 2 (2 is nat and inv+, unlimited): 2 - any unbalanced GF, doesn't promised extra diamonds 2M - natural (4+), but non-forcing,denies significant extras 2nt - nat and GF 3 ...
Official Version of New Convention Charts
Don, I would take that wager if you'd define how you'd prove you won.
ACBL convention chart - Psyches
I think playing 10-13 NT in 1st/2nd seats actually makes me less likely to open on nonsense in 3rd seat. When I'm forced to play stone age NT openers, I can't resist opening any rule of 13 in 3rd after two passes. But not being able to ...
Upcoming chart change looks HUGE for the open field.
Don, how do they manage elsewhere? How much time would it take if this was part of a reasonable pairs' ordinary defensive and competitive agreements? Lastly, and this is the question I'd truly love you to answer, WHY do you think this is convincing to an ordinary bridge player?
Upcoming chart change looks HUGE for the open field.
Don, if some pairs give poor disclosure about other methods that BoD members prefer, will we see those methods barred, or will we see instead the burden of disclosure placed on those who elect said methods? I remember folks not disclosing this well, so we barred it from everyone, sounds ...
Upcoming chart change looks HUGE for the open field.
If it were permitted, it would rapidly be normal to know what your defensive agreements are vs it, and the time issue would cease to be valid very quickly. Likewise for disclosure -- disclosure is much more difficult and time consuming for any convention or treatment when one is wildly unfamiliar ...
