Weak raise of Doubled Major Alertable?
The fact that a "regulation" can't be found is telling. As a meta rule, per David Burn, if you know something, then they should know the same something. So, if you have two ways of describing a similar holding, one weaker than the other, are you the only pair ...
Weak raise of Doubled Major Alertable?
Ian, if you are playing a weak NT, and may open 1NT with a 5 card major, then there is a reason to only raise to 2 of a major, with a poor hand and trump support, expecting partner with a strong NT to pass. No so much if you ...
Swiss teams - with hand records, bridgemates and less waiting time - it IS possible!
Membership is ownership. Perhaps some will remember that, and, insist on improvement, insist on best practices being promoted, insist on serious training. On the good side, the ACBL engaged a respected albeit retired Senior TD to train people at Toronto, taking advantage of the tournament, to get a universal message ...
proofredaers wanted!
Need one be bi-lingual?
Is it time for 1 & 7 PM NABC start times (the critical 30 minutes earlier start)
of course, an alternative would be to conserve time in pairing, and use new tech/projectors to display next round assignments. If you shave off 10 minutes between sets, you get a half hour back during a Swiss. So, there are different ways to address the question, which to my ...
Is it time for 1 & 7 PM NABC start times (the critical 30 minutes earlier start)
The topic, proposed by you, Jonathan, was to shift the start time in the evening to 7pm. When you play 4 to 6 boards more, in the Main event, why should the start times be the same? In the OP, you didn't say, for all butf the non NABC ...
The problems of over-alerting
Even today, while you may risk having someone become a lawyer before your very eyes, you could say "this isn't what you think". I do that. Other people have done that, and, after you tell them to enquire, and they don't, should they get redress? Answer that question ...
Scrambling after a Redouble.
The essential issue is when to bid, and what does pass guarantee. To me, pass says that partner can bid the highest (furthest away) strain, as I have three cards. So if I bid before that, generally I do not have 3 cards in the highes/furthestt, unless I have ...
Continuation after minor suit reverse
Some can not help what you believe or think. Two different people, two different issues, two different solutions. Now, we can go back to the fake news when one wishes.
Feedback: ACBL Convention Charts
Of course, removing infrequent bids from the basic overcall, does have some value, in that you KNOW that the overcall isn't extra shape, extra value. That is important, ain't it?
