Draft ACBL Novice Chart - Request for Comments
No, I don't. I think that if someone is using a text to learn from, be it Hardy, be it Grant, be it Ricker, be it Cohen, that the restricted chart not blindside a pair. That being said, I think this chart is good for newcomer games, but not ...
Draft ACBL Novice Chart - Request for Comments
Ed - I agree with that type of configuration. Especially using the new Chart #3 as the GCC. OK, a few additions or exceptions maybe, but in general it is not too bad. Also, this corrects the issue, as I see it, to group newcomers in with Gold rush players. I ...
Draft ACBL Novice Chart - Request for Comments
I have no problem with any restrictive chart when it comes to newcomer games. Maybe 199er as well. But Gold Rush? Why should there be any restrictions over and above the GCC? I also believe that the GCC should be way less restrictive than it is. It is hard to ...

Feedback for Convention Chart
A further question along this same type opening - say the the 2D opening can be how Richard explains it OR a simple weak 2-bid in diamonds. Allowed?
Dummy's Rights
So then there are two issues - 1) A declarer intentionally trying to gain advantage is possible as long as it is done infrequently enough that no one notices; it is up to the defenders to be the watchdog for such action, and 2) There is evidently no penalty for Dummy ...
Dummy's Rights
What can be done about a declarer who knowingly leads a card from dummy when, for instance, he has no dummy entry but wants to take a finesse. Or has one entry but needs to finesse twice? I suspect some beginners might let him get away with this as there ...
An Overcall Structure (John Fout)
I have been playing the OS for almost 6 months now. Sure, you have to get used to it, but so do the opponents.
