Kevin O'Dea's bidding problem: 76543 42 AQ KQ96
Fun decision.
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Let me ask all of you. If the ACBL simply abandoned the pigmented points, do you think it would be bad for bridge? You get to define what "bad for bridge" is. REACH is labeled an experiment. By what criteria would you judge it a success?
Rubber bridge and the clubs
We have non sanctioned games, and social games at our Adult Center. The reasons these players give for not playing in the "open" duplicates are varied, but the underlying theme is that they don't like playing against the stronger players. There is definitely a "big Frog" issue. Go figure.
Jeff Sapire's bidding problem: AKJ76 6 532 AKJ7
FWIW I think the short suit try is much more likely to get a good result. I would regard Q dbltn as an "good" holding with opposite a 3 try
Jeff Sapire's bidding problem: AKJ76 6 532 AKJ7
Nice try Jeff
REACH: Win Gold Pts at Clubs & Support International Bridge
Experiments are experimental, but I see this as further dilution of the master point already earned.
Michael Low's bidding problem: KJT97 3 AKJT8 T4
I have several instances of this problem, and to run has been right in more than 2/3s
David Sackett's bidding problem: Q84 972 KQ74 KQ6
2 would have been a weak two.
David Parsons's bidding problem: T84 QJ3 J542 Q32
