about me

Long ago, in a galaxy far away, my wife and I used to play a lot, and made token appearances in the lower flights of a couple of GNTs and NAPs and such.  Also managed to lose in the finals of the 0-750 knockouts at three straight Spring Nationals, which is harder to do than it sounds.

 

Then kids happened. 

 

Now we don't play much.

Input from Players and Directors Requested
I think others covered the important bits, so I'll simply say this. "Sequence of events: North alerted the 3S bid After North's 4C bid, East inquired as to the alert: North explained South's bid as Minor Suit Stayman East Passed South simply left the table with cards ...
Advise The Tournament Chair: A Tale Of Three Pairs
"I don't want to ban Mid-Chart conventions in Flight A or top bracket KO but I don't want players leaving in droves." Have you considered trying to make the mid-chart events more attractive to players? Perhaps award a prize or a non-traveling trophy or name next years event ...
Establishment Rules
@ Michael: I'm sure that in the events you play, the directors see their job as enforcing the rules and litigating for the NOS. Unfortunately, for the many of the rest of us (as you can see from other recent threads), we play in events where the directors see their ...

There's aspects of my job I don't like either, but strangely enough I still have to do them. Not sure why the job of bridge director is exempt from that.
A "TYP" Bid
For me it's option A; I suppose it depends on your cue bidding agreements though. If partner can't have a spade control, then we ought to have one -- but mine can, so I cue what I can.
Advise The Tournament Chair: A Tale Of Three Pairs
Yes, of course?
Advise The Tournament Chair: A Tale Of Three Pairs
" Player X1 cannot convince player Y1 to do the same though." Then the directors need to do some convincing, in the form of score adjustments and PPs. Does the tournament chair have any jurisdiction over the directors?
Advise The Tournament Chair: A Tale Of Three Pairs
"There is a problem that is driving people away. " Yes Robert, but let's at least be honest and acknowledge that on this issue [b]there are going to be some people driven away no matter what you do[/b]. Saying "well, let's just outlaw that stuff, that will ...
Advise The Tournament Chair: A Tale Of Three Pairs
A modest proposal: Pairs (for pair events) or teams (for team events) in Mid-Chart events may elect to forbid their opponents from using Mid-Chart methods, but only if the pair/team doing so agrees that they may not use ANY conventional bids of any kind. (Yes, I mean "any" -- no ...
Advise The Tournament Chair: A Tale Of Three Pairs
Danny, I [u]don't[/u] think there is a problem with players (and, again, it's utterly irrelevant to the problem whether they are relayers or just using any system that requires the opponents to ask about an alert, ever) using the knowledge of questions to help them judge ...
