Your Opening 1NT Range
8-10 1st 2nd white, 8-14 3rd white, 14-16 1st 2nd red, 15-17 red third and all 4th. Not ACBL friendly but very annoying to play against.
The Videos Shout: Balicki-Zmudzinski
Good stuff. I want to point out that one of the hand start times given was https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eda-EC0--OQ&t=59m10s and no hand starts at this time. This would explain the two x's and a ? given by the group rating this bid (#6 in ...
Bridge on TV . . . or actually streaming
Last year I made a twitch.tv account where I streamed and commentated my BBO games a couple times. I'd do it more, but my hardware setup is bad and I wouldn't be able to guarantee one of my regular partners (with whom I play interesting bidding systems ...
Gender Standard for ACBL Events

Game Theory in Bridge

Game Theory in Bridge
Examining the suit in isolation, there are seven relevant holdings: Kx three times, Kxx three times, and KT. If you never covered with Kx, only ever covering with KT, declarer can place the T in partner's hand, the K in yours, and can see two spot cards. It's ...
Gender Standard for ACBL Events
The ACBL should allow all women to compete in women's events, no matter if they're cis or trans. They shouldn't need a doctor's note or to have undergone hormone replacement therapy or surgery, but simply express their gender identity. Bridge is a mind sport, and it ...
The only chance ?
I held the West cards at the other table in this match: xx J10x x AKQJxxx. I opened precision 2C, parter bid 2N invitational, and I accepted with my solid 7-carder to 3N (not the best of auctions, to be clear). Down 4 for -200. I didn't see the ...
