about me

Available for Teaching.  Should you wish to learn my system and how it can generate games (recently, 73%, 71%, and 84% in Swiss as retained partner), it may open up a new dimension and new world of bridge for you to consider :)

Critique this convention
3NT is a frequently used game try by many top players. 3NT is game, and you try to make it :) Oh, and new "conventions" must fit with the person's entire structure, so unfortunately, isolating one bid probably doesn't answer the question posed.
A New Ethics?
The solution in this case is to show your hand without making a statement, and if the opponents concede, all is well. You still reserve the option to make a statement, and as Kit has said, the opponents should not fold immediately themselves.
ATB - How did we let this through?
Methinks the person that coined the phrase "Aces are made to take Kings" is in the best position to judge here.
WOLFSON is Senior USA2
Congrats, guys, what a monster 5th Set! Keep the USA Senior streak going in Lyon! (Is that Albert Einstein reincarnated in the back row?)
A New Ethics?
Sorry that I didn't have time to sift through all the replies, but in the first case, the wording offered by David answers the question: "immediately realizes their mistake".

ACBL announces new director of field operations
Hi Brian - you're asking a question that is above my pay grade :) However I will opine that there was little to no review of the Applicant(s) by current TDs and regional field managers (if that's the correct term for Senior TDs).
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: 6 KQT976543 8 A3
Namyats shows A) an 8 1/2 to 9 trick hand, and B) No more than one trump loser. This hand eminently qualifies, and the systemic bid is duly made, though to quote Edgar Kaplan when I had the honor of doing Vu-Graph once with him: "There are no systemic ...
ACBL announces new director of field operations
There is only one person, David, who reveals super classified secrets like that . . . ask him and I'm sure he'll tell :)
