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?

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.
Question for those playing CYZ
The way I learned it, 3S by Responder in sequence 2 is a game-forcing Spade raise with slam interest because XYZ was available. Since Responder has 2C followed by either 2S or 3S available as invitational bids, there's no need to play sequence 2 as invitational. One could argue ...
If a hesitation can be unethical can a quick bid also?
Mark is right. Do players bid "confidently" when they put a 1C or 1D bid on the table? No. They just put it there. Impassively. If players intentionally bid "confidently" in a competitive auction later rather than with that same impassive demeanor, that's a violation of the rules of ...
Opener's two-level "reverse" after a 2/1 GF
After 1H-2D. here's some common "rules" we're told to follow: (1) You can't rebid 2H unless you have 6, (2) You can't rebid 2S unless you have extra strength, (3) You can't rebid 2NT unless you have the other suits stopped, (4) You can't ...
Best defence to a possibly-short 1C?
Don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen.
How frequent/useful is 1M--3m (nat inv) ? Im looking for hands where responder got INV and a long minor.
What did you replace it with? What do you find to be more useful instead of 1M-3m Invitational?
