Guidelines for BBO Vugraph Commentators
Thank you for posting, Roland. Commenting on BBO, like operating, is more difficult than it appears. An amusing anecdote from perhaps 15 years ago. I think the story is true, but perhaps like a fish tale, it has grown over time. Back then, the (admittedly much smaller than today) VuGraph ...
NABC Contracts
My most recent trips to Vegas included Westgate, Bellagio, Wynn, Caesars, and Aria. I’m very sensitive to smoke. Aria was far and away the best, yes people smoked but I didn’t even notice it while the other properties gave me sore throats and smelly clothes. Cosmo is basically ...
World Youth Team Championships August 8-18 2018
Don’t forget, I’m sure the minimum board requirements per player are considered. In the WBF, it is 1/3, so having 4 segments in a match really forces each pair play at least 1/2. Not really consistent with having that requirement. In the ACBL, it’s 1 ...
World Youth Team Championships August 8-18 2018
I found a more interesting hand was in segment 3. Do you and your partner know how you treat (1m)-Pass-(1M)-2m? The Americans were on different wavelengths and conceded 1100 on what was their deal, to lose 15 IMPs.
"Icebreaker" convention?
I can verify when I played on a team with Fred and Koach Kokish, they used 3NT as 6-5 or more in the majors, less than a 1 level opening; however they admitted it was more a constructive bid than destructive - hands that many nowadays would open at the 1 ...
my spingold fantasy is incomplete - what do I do wrong?
It's still not too late, from a technical point of view as of 5:30pm EDT you can still edit; however from a moral point of view, with almost all matches at halftime, you might not feel proper about going nearly perfect in round 1!
Open Atlanta Discussion Thread
It should start on day 2 when they get down to 64 teams and the bracket is known. 78 teams entered so I assume 14 will be eliminated Monday via 56 teams playing in 4-way matches while the top 22 teams get byes. I could be wrong, of course.
District 9 vs. District 17 in GNT Final
At the risk of eating crow and alienating friends, I predict D17 will win today. And it won't be close. Love the way they are playing right now.

Turkish pair wins 54th European Women National Pairs!
Congrats to all! Especially my Polish friends Justyna & Kate who led all day until the final round. And my Italian friend Irene who was bumped out of the medals to 4th on a score correction (listed 3rd in the photo). A great showing for all.
