Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
No July tournament from Reynolds Team Matches
So is the ACBL KO event going ahead, or perhaps can the Reynolds August KO get started a couple of weeks earlier than "normal"?
Bad Disclosure (Pass the cheese, I already have the whine)
BBO could add "natural" & "conventional" buttons to click after you make your bid.
Bad Disclosure (Pass the cheese, I already have the whine)
Perhaps a solution would be to have BBO not display a bid to the table unless it has an explanation typed-in already. It takes about 5 nanoseconds to type "nat" so I can't see this slowing the game down; indeed it will probably speed things up as it will ...
Undos in the Reynolds KOs
No TD available. The Conditions of Contest were basically captains to work things out between themselves.
What Kind Of Team Tournament Would You Like To See?
Much as I love the Reynolds KOs and greatly appreciate all of the work the organisers do, I think the two-week window for each round is too long and would prefer one-week windows. I also think match-length should be uniform across the field; perhaps 32-boards would be optimal.

Late alerts should automatically wind back the auction to the person who acted over the non-alerted artificial bid. A situation where I got screwed recently was where my RHO opened 1 which I doubled for takeout as a passed hand with a 3451 9-count and then the alert came ...
Who is at fault?
East is at fault for leading his singleton rather than trying to cash his Aces.
Convention Cards and online tournaments (mostly ACBL)
I've played in four Reynolds matches so far (thanks very much for organising these btw) and simply have some dialogue with my opposing captains when we are organising the match times to exchange convention cards and agree on any non-ACBL compliant methods we have that they are happy to ...
Can cheating be stopped in online bridge?
Robert Greene, haven't you got the memo that all BW polls must have "other" as an option? I vote (B) and (C).
