Missed The Play Of A Lifetime
Good point!
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
I don't think it's at all weird to key start times to local time rather than somewhere between PDT and EDT. Yes, the first day you're there could be challenging - I remember some years ago struggling in the final few rounds of the Life Master Pairs in ...
mice against cheaters
Unless I'm mistaken, the Laws permit the sponsoring organization to specify how inquiries are handled. So they could specify that the bidder self-alerts and explains. I think it would be best to NOT have both opponents answer. If the opponents are having an accident, you should be able to ...
Washington 2016 and Toronto 2017 NABC Appeals Casebooks with commentary now available
I wish these were required reading for all club directors. Although TBH I found the older casebooks when there were actual committees much easier to read. I had a funny incident this past weekend, playing against a newcomer to the area I mentioned an extremely controversial ruling from an old ...
Yet another "Is pass forcing"?
If partner wants to set up a force, he has to bid 4.

How aggressive are you?
I open 2N, which I play with all my partners who will allow it, as weak with the minors. I think an opening 4N is Blackwood. If it wasn't then I'd open 4N. If I have to open in a minor I'd open 3 and compete ...
Implications Of Asking
Combining Kit and Michael's comments, the solution is to play with tablets or the like. When this will apply to events at what level is above my pay grade, but computers/tablets solve some problems not even solvable with screens.
Changing The Guard - attracting younger players
I've long had a view on this. When I was in high school, I competed in debate and Model United Nations. Top-flight debaters put in quite a lot of preparation, and have to learn a new debate topic in depth each year. Model U.N. is much easier. But ...
