Honolulu BoG Meeting Summary
A big thanks to Steve for putting together this report.
ACBL Query into District Finances.
I applaud the ACBL's desired insight into the financial health of Districts and Units that have the heavy burden of much of the health of our game.
Stéphane Turcotte's bidding problem: AJ3 9542 KQ83 93
3 sounds first like a game-try rather than slammish. In light of this my hand shows wasted values in and completes nothing in with 9xxx.
Paul Hightower's bidding problem: 652 AJ3 K KQ7432
I like 3 as relay to 3NT in all auctions, to play or for slammish hands like these.
Jean La Traverse's bidding problem: --- --- A987653 AKQ862
With 94% approval on the 1 opening, not much traction around 4NT opening, although not surprising. Thanks everyone.
Jean La Traverse's bidding problem: --- --- A987653 AKQ862
4NT was suggested by a well respected local player, but it appears to not have much interest
Benoit Lessard's bidding problem: J8xxx 8x A9 KTxx
Switch the with the and I have sympathy for 1 overcall. If this hand is ours I can show bad later in the auction
Daylight Savings Time
Thank you for the update. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend this NABC BoG meeting. I have secured a proxy. Good bridge to all attending and best of luck to our District 1 representatives in the three NAP flights.
Who Will Win Open World Bridge Games?
I did not vote but I'll be rooting for my Canadian friends Kamel, Nic, Zyg and Fred with Nicolas and Judy
Drew Casen's bidding problem: xx xx KJTxx AKxx
I prefer 2 to show majors allowing partner to bid 2 showing equal length in majors. At this VUL I expect partner to be 5-5 but I've seen 4-5-0-4 patterns before. Passing 2 is not an option for me
