1NT overcall with a small singleton? Legal or Not in ACBL??
We played opponents last year with a 12-17 range on 1 NT overcalls. Since a 6 point range would not be permitted for 1 NT openings we appealed the board, and the director called ACBL. The answer was that the restrictions on 1 NT openings generally do NOT apply to ...
Is this 2!c bid forcing?
It's on your ACBL convention card. 3rd box on 2nd column. With all my regular partners we play "New Suit Forcing" with the qualification that it must be an unpassed hand.
A better rating system
I agree getting high % is harder. I play in some mid 40% games and some games that approach 60%. Getting a 50% score in a 60% average player games is equal to getting a 70% game in a 40% average player game. Trust me, the 70% game is much harder ...
Is this a way to run an organization?
I picked up the schedule for the next Mid-Atlantic Regional/knockout in Hunt Valley (mid-August) and noticed they are only starting knockouts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Tuesday is round robin teams and Thursday is Swiss day. While the inability to start a knockout each weekday will disappoint some people ...
Is this a way to run an organization?
The problems with the top bracket at Reston also affected the other bracket. Since only 19 teams signed up yesterday, there was a 12-team 2nd bracket (with 4 advancing) with teams from <1000-9000 in the bracket. If there had been a 3 team top bracket, there could have been 2 ...
It CAN Be Done
Wish they had these opportunities during my 7 years (BA & JD) as a Golden Gopher.
Gatlinburg 2019
It would be nice if we could pre-register our team online from home before we leave. We are bringing the same team as last year (just with a few more MPs). Is there a link to do this?

My Turn to Speak
As an attorney it is absolutely shocking that presumably some attorney approved trying to terminate for cause, WHEN EITHER PARTY COULD TERMINATE WITHOUT CAUSE ON 30 DAYS NOTICE. If you want to get rid of him (for whatever lousy reason), just give him 30 days notice and he will be ...
ACBL's Flawed Masterpoint Formulas
I have found that the "new" round robin swiss/KO team structure has actually made it easier to get (more) points (especially gold) in the KO (Swiss) team events. Previously, we were typically in a 16 team bracket, with 8 teams (50%) losing their first match and getting nothing and ...
