Director call in Honolulu
Before moving to Switzerland, I would have found this hard to believe, too. But if the French bid like the Swiss, they seem to not like to overcall right away, and when the opportunity to double later arises (since 3H is artificial, it would be be "safe" to double), they ...
Top Bridge Pros' Tax Woes Continue
It does feel a bit gossipy, doesn't it?
European Bridge Clubs
In Switzerland, one announces the length of minor suit openings before the round. In Germany, is one supposed to say something right after partner bids, or is it like Switzerland? (Like if you play better minor, and partner opens 1C, are you expected to say "drei", "drei oder mehr", or ...
European Bridge Clubs
If you need to translate any American bridge terms to German let me know. One thing that very surprised me: Someone opened 2C, alerted, and when I asked, it was explained to me as semi-forcing. I was used to things that are passable being called semi-forcing so thought it might ...

Protocol for Alerting With Screens
I realize this is mainly about an ACBL event and so everyone is expected to use English, but this all gets especially hard when there isn't a common language. Writing in "Bridge language" (numbers and symbols) is much easier than speaking and trying to figure out if the person ...
Open Philadelphia Discussion Thread
According to today's Daily Bulletin, (see page 2), there seem to be near-by parking lots that are $16 or $12 a day.
2NT overcall of a Multi 2!D
Are you saying that if someone on your right preempts 2H, you play 2NT as minors?
Some interesting and difficult boards in Germany
On the last board, I was worried that I would have a hard choice (with the North hand). Our auction started P - P - 1 - 2. I passed (of course, but started thinking what I would do if partner made a re-opening double). I had decided on bidding 2 ...
