BBO Changes for Teaching Bridge
There are too many stupidities in the GIB bidding to use it for beginners, but the idea of teaching 2/1 from the beginning is a good one. I've been teaching bidding as 2/1 to beginning students for several years now and it works out wonderfully. Most of ...
Ruling on opening 1NT with small singleton (ACBL)
To the best of my knowledge, the ACBL forbids a systemic agreement to open 1N with a small singleton. Opening it very occasionally and not with the same partner is not illegal, and (assuming no agreement) there should have been no penalty or adjustment in the case described here. Of ...
A "friendly" game
If the opponents don't want to call the director about my infraction, I immediately do so myself. There is no reason to put opponents in the situation of having to make a decision on whether to follow the rules or not, for fear of insulting you. Once the director ...
A "friendly" game
@Marty .... that might actually be an illegal agreement. The rules of the game apply to everyone, and other pairs might not appreciate that you are selectively agreeing with this one pair to ignore them.
A "friendly" game
What you SHOULD feel is guilty for not obeying the rules of the game you were playing.
What should this bid mean?
I believe DBL should be penalty, otherwise the opponents have too much freedom to interfere without much risk. Given that, 2N should show invitational values with some spade control(s).
Another Fictional Bridge Reference
It's from Duplicate Death by Georgette Heyer (Rougier), 1951. I vaguely remembered it, but had to search to find the author and exact title.
Defense Vs NT Opening: DONT Followup
And what would you bid after 1N 2 (DONT) P when you hold 9 spades to the 10 and no points? There needs to be a way to insist on spades regardless of partner's two suits.
Another reason for why Bridge is viewed as an old people's game
@Mike ... this is a totally different situation you describe. In bridge, there is a partnership which takes many years to develop to the competitive level. That is not true in most sports. When there were men-only and women-only bridge events, if your competition partner was the same gender, you could ...
Another reason for why Bridge is viewed as an old people's game
Gender restricted events are inherently sexist. Restricting entry based on gender is the DEFINITION of sexist.
