Multi Opening Two-Bids
Basically things are going to be very similar going forward. Multi will be legal in 6+ segments in NABC+ events and top brackets of KOs. There might be a few more events where it is allowed. The idea of allowing Multi in more events was definitely considered, but did not ...
Hool - A Prelude to Bridge
I think this is mostly a demographic difference. HOOL is probably better for those under 30; Jeff's line is probably better for those new empty nesters taking up the game in their 50s...
Opp Sacrifice at Matchpoints
I would bid 2 as well. Not sure how that helps on this hand.
Opp Sacrifice at Matchpoints
For those of you assessing blame, How would you bid differently if East held the King of Hearts instead of the King of Clubs?
Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: AJ932 J932 A94 2
Definitely 1NT. Limits the hand. Keeps the bidding low. You don’t really to play in either minor.
Opp Sacrifice at Matchpoints

Request from Board re Players who Drop off World Championship Teams
Echoing Mike and Howie. This is a bad idea. Many years ago we asked permission for JoAnn to play on our open trials after she had won the Woman's trial. Our team did not figure to be a threat to win, nonetheless we were denied. What has changed? Look ...
Liam Milne's bidding problem: J7 K6 AQJ2 AK975
Double should get us to most of our 8 card fits if 2NT is scramble over the double. Of course, we could be in a 5777 situation; even then 3 might be ok if partner has some decent hearts...
ATB - 7N a no-no
Marty: 54% is not very poor at any form of scoring. Forgetting that, I think you are underestimating the chances with 9 opposite. I know you are underestimating our chances including the heart suit. Partner will have the q about 1/4 of the time; when he has that card ...
