Why Hasn't ACBL Replaced SAYC w/ a Basic 2/1 System Instead?
@Chris "JoAnn's solution for a 3 card limit raise in Standard is spot on. Temporize in a two of a minor (could be 3 cards), then jump to three of opener's major." Actually Chris there is no need to jump. A simple 2/1 followed by two of ...
Why Hasn't ACBL Replaced SAYC w/ a Basic 2/1 System Instead?
"I forgot, how does SA handle 3 card limit raise?" If you are not playing 2/1 GF you start with a 2/1 and support partner on your next bid.
Why Hasn't ACBL Replaced SAYC w/ a Basic 2/1 System Instead?
Years ago intermediate students begged me to teach them 2/1. They had no problem learning 2/1 game forcing. However the fit hit the shan when they tried to comprehend forcing no-trump. They didn't understand why one would bid a three card suit over one no-trump. They didn ...
Ethics, gamesmanship and the law
Not unethical or illegal. I think they were getting in your face because you could have played out a few tricks and found out yourself. Gamesmanship? To hide state of match. Maybe but probably not. Shrug and get over it.

MONTREAL "Summer Nationals" in July
Perhaps the Queen Elizabeth has been renovated but 20 years ago it had rooms the size of a large closet. There was no place to put suitcases.
MONTREAL "Summer Nationals" in July
I think this is an ACBL issue. The tournament ends on Sunday. Perhaps the ACBL doesn't properly communicate that Sunday night is also a convention night.
MONTREAL "Summer Nationals" in July
Early this morning I went through the entire process online only to be told that the Westin was sold out. I restarted then was finally able to get the Westin with the last Sunday night waitlisted. I suspect it's some sort of snafu with the tournament ending on Sunday ...
What Suit Preference Signal Should You Give?
I would play a middle spot showing no strong preference. There is no way I could possibly want a heart continuation on this hand.
Help needed with a player upset with a director's ruling
The problem with describing the bid is weak is that it means different things to different players. For example inverted minors, a single raise is invitational yet a double raise is "weak". What does that mean? Could you jump raise on anything less than an invite? If weak is truly ...
