Why is this day different from all others?
9 teams plays as 3-ways all day. this runs faster than 8 single matches, especially with 6-board matches, since you only compare every other round. i was surprised how much i liked that aspect of the round robin. (i don't like much else about the bracketed round robin, but ...

why can't you both be right?

Most Pervasive "Bridge Club Myths" re Bidding?

Convention Cards in NABC+ events
My partner asked an opponent for a convention card in a NABC+ event, and was told he didn't have one. The conversation went like this: "ok, so what are you playing?" "Oh, everything's standard." "What's your no trump range?" "Variable" "director please!" While not giving names, these ...
Alerts when gray: a specific siutational poll
Sadly, that sounds like something the ACBL would say. Still it's *really* hard to get penalized for alerting an unnatural bid, and I don't think it would happen here. One of the more entertaining sessions I ever played, I showed up drunk four minutes after start as a ...
