Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Hold on a minute
Because this particular director was quite confident and up to now always right. And another former director indicated that he thought they (floor and table) were or at least might be equivalent.
Hold on a minute
How much do directors get paid in Australia? In terms of monthly rent for a 2 BR apartment if possible.
Hold on a minute
Law 24. What I am wondering is if there is some ACBL interpretation that a card falling on the floor is the equivalent of a card falling on the table.
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Just create a product that people want to spend their money on. Period. I'm doing it. Now, I have absolutely no desire to be responsible for anything like a NABC. But apparently some people with egos do. So they should not blame/seek salvation from others when they fail ...
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Once again, whoever is paying needs to be aware that begging in not a business model. If there's a problem, let me be the first to say let's solve it. Begging is not a solution.
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Like others here, I would rather see the ACBL incur the penalty and lose money on this tournament. I think in politics they call these sorts of bailouts, should one occur, moral hazard.
Hold on a minute
I saw it when the director ruled it a penalty card.
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
The NE regional has a nice solution. Choice pairs. Play any 2 of 9, 1 and 7. Right Peg?
Hold on a minute
I was thinking that 50E1 applied, when clearly it didn't. "Information derived from a penalty card and the requirements for playing that card are authorized for all players for as long as the penalty card [b] remains on the table." [/b]
Jim Perkins's bidding problem: A54 Q8642 Q QJ73
I opted for 2 thinking that I wanted partner to evaluate his holding in that suit for purposes of slam. Partner thought that my sequence (2 followed by 4) was an overbid and suggested 2NT. The slam was cold with KQx,AKxxx,xx,AKx opposite.
