Last Year's ACBL President Speaks Out
I haven't gone to an NABC in 10 years, but decided to go to Vegas this summer. The rate at Cosmopolitan is fairly reasonable in that there's no resort fee, and VERY reasonable on the weekend. But THERE ARE NO ROOMS! I went to make a reservation while ...
More Memphis Mishappenings
TBH I didn't try to dissect the entire auction and explanation but I do know that you ARE allowed to be woken up by an impossible bid. This happened to me in a nationals about 20 years ago, 2N by partner alerted and explained correctly as weak with both ...
Keep Bridge Alive in the USA
I feel somewhat strongly that bridge could be a very viable high school activity, like debate. I was a competitor/coach/administrator in debate and Model United Nations for 6 years, winning national championships in M.U.N. in both high school and college. Kids love to compete, and the ...
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.
From a bidding box when is a bid final?
When bidding boxes first came into common use, I remember Doug Grove ruling "A call is made when the bidding card is removed from the bidding box, with intent." I find it's not uncommon for me to pull one extra card, for example, when I mean to bid 2S ...
$375K ACBL Boondoggle & Hawaii Fallout!
I'm going to reply to the narrow question of custom-written software. About 30 years ago, when LOTUS 123 was the hot thing, my mother was the treasurer of a ladies investment club. I wrote a more or less complete accounting system for them in 123. It wasn't super-sophisticated ...
