Will Engel's bidding problem: 6 854 A43 AKT865
4NT, pick a minor. I have a few regular partner's that would never misunderstand this. Plus a few that I would never dare try this. I'm guessing partner is 4=1=6=2 or 4=1=5=3.
Our Implementation of Hand Records in Bracketed Round Robins
In the nuclear power industry I work in, we often talk about "what is the worst thing that could happen" and what to do to prevent that. In a local sectional Dupli-Swiss less than two weeks ago which I had been pushing for more than a year in advance, it ...
Our Implementation of Hand Records in Bracketed Round Robins
I note that if I enter 8 rounds and 9 teams into ACBLscore, you have a choice of American Whist movements where you compare every two rounds. You have four choices: Team 1 opponents for Round 1 and Round 2 3+8 5+6 4+7 2+9 I have ...
The weak jump shift response - a contrarian view
For those partners who insisted on the weak jump shift being in the 3 to 5 HCP range, my only stipulation was "do it only if you don't want to be in game opposite 18-19 HCP balanced with 3-card support". Clearly if you play the range a bit higher ...
An observation in Vegas - last day regional fast pairs
Some may say six, but if I was sure of less than 40 tables, I can play four sections of 8 to 9 tables (perhaps 10 if near 40 tables total) with FOUR sets of boards and no web movement needed. I don’t have much familiarity with webs used ...
An observation in Vegas - last day regional fast pairs
Ellis, I just checked and I do have a 9x3 12-table Web that a few times about five years ago I used for 11 1/2 tables. Note, however, that playing against TWELVE opponents instead of EIGHT opponents is, in my opinion, preferable. Here are the notes that I have ...
An observation in Vegas - last day regional fast pairs
Peg, I agree with you, especially if it had been the national event setting. In that case, I would have called for the Director. I've also played twice in the national Fast Pairs. In this case, I sensed it would take longer with a director call to finish than ...
An observation in Vegas - last day regional fast pairs
Ray, I've spent more than a year pushing for a local sectional to run a Sunday Dupli-Swiss and it's finally going to happen this coming Sunday, which I will be helping the Director set up. For the South Bend (northern Indiana) sectional, we've typically had about 24 ...
Critique This Bidding
I would accept and bid 5NT, suggesting 6NT. At imps, 6 has some appeal. Playing from the West seat might be the difference between a make and going down.
An observation in Vegas - last day regional fast pairs
Ray, back when my local club had 10+ tables nearly all the time, I always made a second set of boards. (I was the only Director that did this.) Some movements I used with the second set of boards: 10 tables: 9x3 Web movement, all play 27 of 27 boards ...
