Feedback for Convention Chart, Part 2
Thanks for all your work on this- it is much appreciated. On the ACBL Mid-Chart, it is currently legal to, by partnership agreement, be permitted to open a Multi 2 with 5M(332) pattern and a below average strength hand. It seems that since this agreement does not show ...
Captain's Diary, Day 0: Arrival and Opening Ceremony
Looks like your welcome gift offered more than your typical entrée in Salsomaggiore. Good luck to you and the team!
Faulty Claim Ruling
Michael, I reread the claim statement provided by the OP again. What specifically in the wording convinces you that declarer will play first? While I agree that my conviction that declarer would play first was somewhat unfounded, it certainly doesn't seem precluded. There are 'conflicting' things, neither ...
Faulty Claim Ruling
Being the only person that voted -3, I must be missing something? I'm supposing based on the claim statement that declarer plays the A, tests , then cash from the top. Testing certainly does not require playing three rounds, and there are certainly reasons not to play ...
PLAYOFF in Mixed USBC
Reading the Savchenko-Katz appeal write-up raises several issues which I have previously found, and continue to find, rather troubling. First, procedural penalties (PPs) are, in my experience, applied extremely inconsistently. People frequently complain about slow play in NABC+ events, but PPs are very seldom assigned except for in “fast” events ...
How do we catch up?
I play reverse wysiwyg after a psychic pass. It would've made this auction very simple.
Link to ACBL GNT rosters
Debbie, This is one thing ACBL Live has actually helped (though still far from perfect). Many of the missing results can be centrally obtained by going to http://live.acbl.org/ and clicking on the "GNT/NAP Results" button. It's still not exhaustive, but it helps.
Stop the Stop Card
My impression was that the bid was "touching or nearly touching the table" but that the bidding cards were still in the bidder's hand by the time LHO's call was "touching or nearly touching" the table. Obviously I don't know for sure since I wasn't there ...
Stop the Stop Card
This is mostly an irrelevant technical point, but it is the skip bid warning, and not the usage of the stop card, which is required by regulation. Yes, the stop card is the proper method of making a skip bid warning when using bidding boxes. I personally do need read ...
Time To Do Away With the Books
Ed, I didn't want to sidetrack the thread, but sure...off the top of my head, things that should probably be legal at some level lower than they are currently: 1) Transfer openings at the one-level, showing opening values (8+ HCP by ACBL definitions) and length in a suit ...
