Upcoming, Challenging NABC's?
Could very well be, Barry. Non-ACBL rate for the tournament currently averages around USD 400/night plus $39/night resort fee plus all the fun taxes, 9 months in advance. Want to stay at a cheaper “dive” hotel? Walking anywhere in Vegas especially in summer is not fun and takes ...
Jonathan Steinberg's bidding problem: xxx xx KQx KTxxx
...and even she wouldn't pass the first time around! 2D fits just fine - you have a sound 8 count, 3-card support with 2 of the top 3 honors, a ruffing value in RHO's suit. And as an added bonus, the risk that partner is 4432 has been eliminated ...
Jonathan Steinberg's bidding problem: xxx xx KQx KTxxx

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 ...
