Bridge Information

Favorite Bridge Memory
Going for 3500 in a GNT qualifier just after the scoring penalties were increased. Partner made a great bid I didn't figure out - raised her void to the seven level. She gave up the game soon after. Four teammates never played with us again. Sorry partner. My fault. Really painful for a couple of years. Now my favorite story.
Bridge Accomplishments
Fell asleep playing on vugraph in the semi-finals of the Senior Knockouts. Haven't revoked in a while. Once upon a time, I was on a winning 0-5000 GNT team. After I retired, made 676 points in sectionals one year. Who can play that much bridge when they've got a real job ... or a family ... or pets?

Looking for consensus
Of course, there are other good uses for 1m-2M jumps, but one nice thing about strong jump shifts is Responder can suggest a slam immediately on a hand that probably will produce seven tricks by itself. So Responder can immediately send a message that the partnership is in the slam ...
Thinking Twice About Two-Way
I agree that 2NT puppet to 3C is not an improvement and adds the maximizes complications with little, if any, theoretical gain and several practical losses. Although I like the variation of 2-way NMF where 2C forces 2D, it is more complicated than several posts here acknowledge. For example, 2-way ...
Present/Remaining count carding. Best technical method?
UDCA has nothing to do with the suit you lead or the card you lead back. That is a different carding issue. The UDCA with "standard PRESENT count" issue has to do with one situation only, i.e. where you have already signaled attitude in a suit with one card ...
Open Las Vegas Discussion Thread
Are the first session results of the Roth Swiss Teams being posted anywhere on the internet? If so, could someone please post an internet address?
An instructive deal for the non-math types
David: Nice little hand. Bridge definitely can be that simple, and that cruel. We calculate probabilities, then we back our judgment of the best line of play. We also read the cards and back our judgment of what is the best line of play based on that read. We do ...

Is there a link to follow the GNT results without waiting for the daily tournament bulletin the next day?
Thanks, Fred Gitelman
Thank you, Fred.
Simple question - What honor is "standard"?
Dave: Oops, now you tell me? I'll try to remember in the future.
