BW 2/1: Splinters
"Slam suitable" from MR has a lot of likes which I, too, like. Somewhat enigmatic, but my take is you'll know when you see it.
Platinum Point and Membership Stats - ACBL?!
I think we should care if we want the League to flourish. In my view, it is a sinking ship that is also rowing against the tide. But, even if so, that doesn't mean that we can't keep face-to-face a delightful endeavor for a few more years.
Active Ethics (Again)
I agree with Frances and Doug. Obviously I can't speak for LC but I can see why he chose to view the situation as one (as a practical matter) of ethics rather than legalities. (Sometimes, at the club, I politely bring up the "isolation booth" or behind screens scenario ...
Platinum Point and Membership Stats - ACBL?!
Gary, yep -- 160,070. I guess what we don't know is how this number is defined and at what specific time. Thanks for following up.
Platinum Point and Membership Stats - ACBL?!
"Current Membership is 160,070, apparently down from the 165,000+ of recent years?" Hmmmn. I had been seduced into thinking that membership numbers were holding their own in recent years (about 165,000). Former CEO made a practice of reporting membership numbers in exhibits accompanying board member reports. Current ...
Active Ethics (Again)
Ray, My question is a broad one. and my own views parallel those of Jeff Lehman. At the club, I now let many things go -- I'm weary of trying to educate, which often leads to ill-will. Like politics :) At tournaments, on occasion, I ask the floor director to review ...
Proceeding after 1m-(Dbl)-ReDbl-(Pass or 1X)
An Afterwood: My Premise: Only the most expert of partnerships should seek penalties after partner opens 1m and 2nd seat doubles -- give it up and use transfer advances. A number of commenters appear to agree and so play, probably with a variety of understandings. Some methods are undoubtedly on BW ...
BW 2/1: Splinters
In 2/1 auctions, it would seem "slam suitable" would include an appraisal of length of fit (possibly only 8 vs 9+) and the quick-taking strength of the fit.
Proceeding after 1m-(Dbl)-ReDbl-(Pass or 1X)
True (as well as other transfers). Also: 1NT is 15- to 17+ We open 11 or 12 BAL, and 10-11 Unbal (system notes) After a minor opening: 2NT is 13-15 3NT is 15-17 Those are adjustments to 1996 WS. Presumably, they would be included in any WS 2018, edition 3 ...
Proceeding after 1m-(Dbl)-ReDbl-(Pass or 1X)
John, however unusual, I don't think you got this one quite right :) Here is a link to recent Robinson-Boyd ACBL and WBF convention cards plus System Summary Form. Essentially, their agreements closely follow those of SR's Washington Standard 1996 (which, unlike the first ...
