Another question about alerting when there's no agreement
Did NS pre-alert their 1 opening? Where's the duty to protect one's self here? Shouldn't North have some obligation to ask a few questions about the auction before he flags 5x?
Protecting the field?
Other - so I abstained. This is how I feel about it too - nothing wrong with doing something anti-percentage or "anti-field" in an attempt to get a top, but that not quite the same as "totally up to you". You can't, for example, start playing misere or psyche every hand ...

A semi-related query I have in relation to current bridge playing programs is whether or not it's possible to have such programs play a full set of boards many many times but also having some variations in system, aggression and carding methods each time a board gets replayed. The ...

@Paul. I found the interview highly interesting. Believe it or not, there is world of bridge outside of the ACBL.
2016 World Bridge Games, Pairs Medals Presented to Bach/Cornell
Congrats to Ash & Mike! New Zealand well and truly punches above its weight in terms of bridge players per population and has produced many patriot and ex-patriot stars (mostly to Australia's benefit) over the years.
