What is 4!C?
I thought 41C was Gerber:)
So, you're playing 2/1 with an expert partner with a not very extensive discussion period...
My issue is that I hate this situation because I want discussion about Serious/Non Serious 3NT if I am playing with a true expert. If expert does not play Serious/Non Serious 3NT, I want to know if they play Peg Kaplan(no extras, 2nd round control minimum denying ...
Grue-Moss Slam Bidding

Hampton and Marshall Win Silver Ribbon Pairs

Buddy Hanby's bidding problem: 4 AQT63 K643 Q76
One other thing..4 that is bid smoothly and may steal the whole pot..
Slow play survey
To Bill Cubley, the answer is very simple. It is to have a helper/assistant to accommodate this person for the entire event provided by ACBL for those who have this disability(aka the Phil Clayton idea). At a NABC, it should not too hard to find one from the ...
