Is this a way to run an organization?
I agree with both of Oren's paragraphs. I found that the 1st paragraph was true 35 years ago when I was teething in Bloomington IN and Denny and Jerry Clerkin (and Marinesa Letezia) were often in attendance, and continued to be true as I moved into District 6 a ...
Is this a way to run an organization?
Unfortunately, David, unless an un-seeded Open KO is paired with a flighted second-chance event, you will probably end up with just the top flight teams. Twenty years ago, I heard whining about stratified B teams being paired against an A team in a local swiss. Instead of being proud that ...
James Huntington's bidding problem: AQJ98 AT2 J85 T3
Jim - this reminds me of two days in a row, where I played with Irv back at the Bloomington club. The auction was 1-D-R-P; P-P. It made one day, down the other. Somehow we were on the right side of both. With Irv, you might be playing SA, but ...
Am I just wrong?
David - if you are referring to often = numbers, then I disagree. Blackwood is used far more frequently, so misuse is likely to reflect those larger numbers as well. However, if often = proportion/percentage, then I am sure the misuse will be similar enough
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Although I personally disagree with the decision to use the VP scale to decide a KO event, if the CoC supports that decision, as coordinator I would stand by the DIC. However, under the circumstances, and if I was made aware of the following (from Rick in the original post ...
ATB, if any, for this missed slam
I abstained to say I don't see anything wrong with the choices made. I might be able to bid this slam if both my partner and I were bidding aggressively that day, but even then, one of us might still back off. Preempts are designed to make things more ...
GNT Format: Going Forward
This might be outside this thread due to not being related to Rick's 11 suggestions. I would like to see a way found for geographically spread districts to do a better job of being inclusive to their hinterlands. D6 tries by having qualifying sessions outside of the DC area ...
David Caprera's bidding problem: AKT9xxx A Kx AQx
I would start with 3 , but since that wasn't an option, I went with 6 . Assuming the worst, I can only count 10 tricks, so I may need to work on setting up the spades. And there is no guarantee that the diamonds will run; if partner ...
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Add it to the pool of questions for the next NABC tricia night.
GNT D. 22 GNT Fiasco. The official ruling
Mark, I beg to differ about whether the odds are affected. To the extent that both D22 teams qualify or do not qualify, then the odds did not change. But when only one team qualifies and the other does not, then the odds the D22 team has increased and for ...
