Top 25 Tips for better match point results
It leaves out the single most important rule for match points, "Plusses are good, minuses are bad."
Cue bid after double - Game forcing or not
I wonder whether the poll results would be different if the auction had been (1S)-DBL-1N-2S? In this auction, 1S may be bid on no values at all.
Gutless, conservative, or reasonable?

What do you think of the following explanation?
Seems totally appropriate assuming that is their agreement. Even if it is two novices reminding each other of their agreements, playing against C.C. Wei and Ron Andersen, I find nothing that is less than exemplary in their explanation. Opt1 did not have to ask. If it turns out that ...
A deal from Ft Lauderdale sectional pairs game
