The Club's Coffee-Housing
IMHO, taking advantage of "table feel" is something that should be illegal in bridge. Hence my love of electronic bridge. However, since it IS legal, then it is extremely unfair if the victims of it are not allowed to counter it with false "table feel" actions. Hence my love of ...
Throw Anything
I also did this once, a very long time ago in a local club game. The declarer said, "play anything", so I immediately said, play the diamond ace. Declarer objected, director made him play the diamond ace, and I made a permanent enemy of the declarer and his partner. It ...
Online Bridge Ruling, Psychic or Fail to Alert
It depends on your method of hand evaluation for opening bids. I count LTC of 7, and that is supposed to be an opening hand. So if you play LTC as your guide to opening, that's a 1 opening bid.
Which minor do you open?
I highly recommend this excellent article by Steve Robinson on this subject: .
PEDs and labelling
Caffeine is on the WADA restricted list?
Help me out in this - am I mad?
This sounds like 5 spades and 7+ clubs, with not a lot of points. Checks for a spade fit and then bids game in clubs (fast arrival, so no slam interest).

Opener's two-level "reverse" after a 2/1 GF
I point out that your 66% is 66% of the people who subscribe to this forum and care enough to answer a poll. That does not include a very huge number of people who play 2/1 but don't come here, most of them well below National Class.
Opener's two-level "reverse" after a 2/1 GF
"A king better than minimum" works quite well as a guideline for 3 level bids (exception=raising pard's hearts). I just teach "about 15+ pts" which is a bit easier for learners. It works just fine and keeps the bidding low with weakish or poor distribution hands (5332 comes ...
Opener's two-level "reverse" after a 2/1 GF
It's a bit insane to bypass a 4 card spade suit to bid a 3 card minor or even a 4 or bad 5 card minor just for the purpose of GF. If the minor is good and the spades are poor, fine, but there is absolutely no reason ...
