Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
To Show or Not To Show?
'On a "short Friday," we see only TOP, BOTTOM, ABOVE AVG., BELOW AVG., or AVG.' Which remote scoring product shows this behavior?
Whining about a club director (again)
Looks like responder bid according to the announced method: 6-10 or so with 4 card support. It also appears that responder took the request for an explanation as a sign that a so-so holding merited more action after opener's clear preference to keep it low, which preference I for ...
Michael Seamon (1960-2017)

Precision - 2 Club response to strong 1 Club opener - not alertable
Reminds me of a National where we experienced a similar situation. We told the opponents we play Precision prior to play so that they might prepare. One opponent was a professional and the other his client. We alerted our bids as required. Yet the professional on receipt of a poor ...
