Open Kansas City Discussion Thread
So sorry to hear that Rod. I don't know whether you read my post on Aussie bridge. Hopefully the League will make necessary changes to increase player enjoyment. Some things just can't be helped but issues like the hotel mass canceling the room keys, running out of rooms ...
BIT in slam bidding
@Ed - Yep I agree wholeheartedly with your sentiment. As a purist I believe that everyone should follow the rules. However reality sinks in when the directors aren't capable of dealing with these issues, players get turned off and won't return and it usually becomes an unpleasant situation. If ...
BIT in slam bidding
Jeff I agree with most of your comments. BIT and subsequent actions are more of a problem in clubs. FWIW I almost never call a director in a club unless its heinous. You are correct often these issues are unintentional and that more education would probably be helpful. However the ...
BIT in slam bidding
@Jeff - It is easy to take potshots by bringing out the old saw of criticizing an adjustment by saying "if it hesitates, shoot it" Jeff my apologies if I came across as taking a potshot. After 40+ years of serving on appeals committees I can assure you that most players ...
BIT in slam bidding
It's not unexpected to have a BIT in high level auctions. Wouldn't a fast 4D bid also be likely to convey some UI? The "if it hesitates shoot it" approach to bridge is way overused.
The Wonder of Bridge Down Under
What a nice post Joan. You have done exactly what I'm proposing. We "borrow" the best from each other. Why not? After all the "not invented here" attitude doesn't help anyone. We have our reservation and plan to attend next year. I hope we can find a chance ...
ABCL Board of Directors agenda for Kansas City
IMO eliminating the stop card and mandatory hesitation is the way to go. Do we really need to hesitate when the bidding goes 1NT - 3NT? Should we require a mandatory hesitation over 1NT openers, Michaels, transfers, when doubling and general competitive auctions. In all of these cases hesitations (or lack ...
Open Kansas City Discussion Thread
"Can we finally do something convention cards?" Debbie couldn't agree more. Supposedly the directors are to require the pairs without at least one card to play yellow card. It never happens. If the League isn't serious about this requirement why keep posting it in the bulletin? "Shuffle and ...

Perhaps cleaning up the field and removing the rotten apples has leveled things a bit.
ABCL Board of Directors agenda for Kansas City
Adam you didn't accept it when it was unanimous. You still don't accept it even though it passed by a majority. Seems like you won't give up on this. The stop card is a pain in the butt. Recently I played against a world class player who ...
