Dan Denison's bidding problem: T9875 4 AJ954 T8
Hmmm. You passed in real life. And a very solid majority supported you. But the majority is not always right.
Jack Spear's bidding problem: JT32 AJ92 2 AJ32
I am a recent convert, but now strong believer, in the theory that in this type of 5-level auction, pass is forcing, and I should pass with one diamond and double with two. Partner can then make an informed decision. Bidding is optional with a void. The theory, which I ...
Dan Denison's bidding problem: AQJT8 K Q9875 T5
Thanks to all for your votes. This hand was from the recent Keohane Individual event at the Newton, MA regional. My choice was to pass, which resulted in a zero. I posted this hoping to reassure myself that I was not the lone ranger. I am somewhat reassured.
Changing the CDR - an ACBL BoD motion
I think at high levels, there is conspiracy to defraud. A pro pair's sponsor is paying them for performance to achieve an objective, which will be taken away if they are found to be cheating They are competing against other pros who fail to achieve their own incentives when ...
Changing the CDR - an ACBL BoD motion

What Effect Will The Cheating Allegations Have On Grass Root Bridge?
Misplaced posting removed. Sorry.
Changing the CDR - an ACBL BoD motion
How about adding the possibility of the ACBL filing a federal criminal complaint for Conspiracy to Defraud for the cases where Beyond Reasonable Doubt can be established, and the event involves pro teams where significant money is/was at risk for both competitors and teammates? That could be a significant ...
The law of cheating
IANAL and multinational venues clearly complicate things, but this is the first comment I have seen on lo these many threads that has identified criminal punishment as a possibility. I think it would be fine to have a two-tiered system: Preponderance of evidence for internal sanctions of some strength, but ...
Intervention of our miniNT
We play 10-13 with penalty doubles at the two level only and have had steady success with it, particularly at imps. The weakness lies in the difficulty of competing effectively in part score deals where we have a 4-4 fit, and that is more costly at matchpoints. We have had ...
Discussion-worthy Motions for Chicago BOD Meeting
Nowhere above do I see the following thought. The proposed new rule is likely to have little immediate impact on the desired objective of prompt starting times. A huge amount of people will show up 35 minutes before game time, creating a backup that is largely invisible under the legacy ...
