ACBL Attendance Dropoff - 2016-2018
Robert, midweek I see the D21 regionals have "Open Pairs 5000/+", "Midflight Pairs 1500/3000" and "Gold Rush Pairs 300/750". I don't know how successful they are, but I like the idea too.
Placing a whole heap of bidding cards on the table.
On that one, my LHO opened 7 and partner overcalled 7 -- so that's 77 "bits of card" in the first two calls.
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Is a C pair scoring 49% in an open game less of an accomplishment than winning the 299er (or Gold Rush, or 99er) game? Why shouldn't the pair in the open game get points? To my mind, we should be encouraging pairs to get exposure to better (or at ...

What does StratoFlight mean as opposed to stratified ?
From http://www.acbl.org/tournaments_page/general-information/explanation-of-events/pair-games-explained/ STRATIFLIGHTED PAIRS The Stratiflighted Pairs is almost identical to a Stratified Pairs with one major difference — the pairs in the top flight compete in a separate event, totally apart from the other strata. The top flight can be divided into two ...

What are your responses if playing Ogust?
I have also run into this issue with partners, and it's now something I ask about if a partner wants to play Ogust. That said, I originally learned it (as most here did, apparently) as hearts=good hand, and that's my preferred set of responses.
