Recommend a partnership style
It's a dance that takes practice and my partnership does both and I think you have to. Unlike most we pass a lot of 11's and 4 triple 12's, invite heavy over 3rd seat openers, much lighter over 2nd, 4th and 1st seat openers in that order ...
What is the largest penalty you have ever seen?
I played the first round of a regional KO in a 3-ring when a rookie Director screwed the pooch and the movement as they just played through at the other table instead of moving to ours. The DIC eventually sorted it out by arriving at our table as we played ...
1NT with a Worthless Singleton
IMO the idea that the 1nt bid is illegal with a small stiff ONLY if done repeatedly and in the opinion of many ONLY with the same partner is completely unworkable unless the ACBL operated with 1 director with a photographic memory. Putting a (basically) unenforceable regulation on the books ...
What would be your ruling?
I agree in that I don't blame north so much as I would not give south a pass on their actions
Can the Director do this?
Back to the title.... A friend of mine played a regional pairs against a couple of kitchen bridge players venturing out in the 3rd round when they had already been called on for coffee housing maybe 4/6 hands. Her rho opened 1nt, she overcalled, tank, p - p reopen with ...
100% at least 9 of 10 calls I get for slow play on bbo are for a player not bidding after 1nt - 3nt by the opps with a near yarb or failing to follow suit on defence with a stiff deuce.
Is this a weak two in 1st/2nd seat in your preferred style
As far as being able to come in later I suspect that opening would be unanimous if you reversed the majors, or should be.
Another Thank You
When I started a very good friend of mine would go to an NABC, play a session or 4 and mostly kibitz the greats. Not my cup of tea and I may have set a record for entering Spingolds etc. as the number 100+ seed and gaining my experience with ...
ATB/YBTJ - hand from sectional (Matchpoint Pairs)
On my card the double of 2 just shows a max for the previous 1nt bid which I agree was uninspired but it is a 10 count. That said, I don't see a good score from the east perspective unless we beat it 2 tricks and 3m making ...
What should this bid mean?
I voted other. If it's a partnership of under 10 years and/or hasn't been discussed in the last 6 months it's Waterboarding.
