Odds on Doubling
Doubling 2 has far less downside; it isn’t game if they make it.
Why is this day different from all others?
I received the following email from the ACBL clarifying the new rule: Dear Danny Sprung, Beginning on January 1, 2020, a new ACBL regulation took effect: All players who have won an event which qualifies them to be designated a Grand Life Master (GLM) upon accumulating 10,000 masterpoints and ...
Most east-west pairs got in the auction. Should they have
Another bad example of using losing tricks. AKJ972 is the same as KQ5432. Count me out.
Why is this day different from all others?
The new rule can’t specify a player must play in the top bracket if they have won a GLM qualifying event. What happens when their are more such teams than spots in the event? (That was the case here, I think). What the new rule does specify is that ...

Format for 3-way Match with 2 survivors
You can turn this argument around. Think of it as one match versus two teams. If team A is plus 75 IMPS, team B is minus 25 IMPS and team C is minus 50 IMPS, who is the better team? I'd argue team B is better. You'd argue ...
Format for 3-way Match with 2 survivors
I’d sequester one pair in each match for the last 28 boards. This seems even more important than during the typical RR.
Bidding a perfect fit
I won't spoil it, but this is a movie quote, for those who didn't recognize it.
