RIP George Rosenkranz
Glenn was a good local bridge player in Houston. He served 15 years in federal prison and was paroled in 1999, when he returned to Houston. He died in 2007. He was not a friend of mine but was more than an acquaintance.
Takeout Doubler’s Cue Bid after Minor Suit Advance
You have not specified (or I have missed) the condition of whether we are playing IMPs or matchpoints. At matchpoints, there could be a considerable premium to playing in hearts At matchpoints, I would bid 3 hearts which I consider virtually forcing, inasmuch as 2 hearts would be very strong ...
RIP George Rosenkranz
I was his teammate for our 1981 Grand National Teams win and our 1987 Men's Teams win (the last one, now the Open Teams). George was a wonderful person and a great teammate. He shall be missed.
Frivolous Appeal Penalty VOTE

Vote on Mixed USBC Conditions of Contest
2 day RR to reduce to 4 (or 8) teams if entry is large enough to require. 2nd 2 day round robin to reduce to the number of teams eligible fo USA2 which will "fill out" the tournament. Any remaining losers of RR2 are eliminated.
Senior USBC RR length
Arrangements with the hotel for a (very) late check out will need to be made since play would end about 2:45.
Screen Procedures
With respect to 8 in Peter's post above, there should be no option in whether the opening lead is face up or face since if at player's option. information can be transmitted. Additionally, once specified as face up or face down, it should be specified that the card ...
