about me

I started playing bridge in 1980 and have played on and off since then. Now I just play a couple of times a month and the odd tournament now and again. I play a forcing club system with weak NT

Not sure if Lebensohl is on the card?
Any sort of announcement etc. required?

Any sort of announcement etc. required?
Not that anyone asked, but at our regular game (the best game in the city not on a Sunday :-)) we are now required to alert our 1 1 and 1 opening bids. No pre-alert is required. Can’t wait till the next tournament to see what we ...
Any sort of announcement etc. required?
Thanks to all for your input. We played today in the New Year’s Sectional pairs in Toronto and the director advised that we must pre-alert this by explaining our system before the round starts to indicate that our 1 1 and 1 bids promise an unbalanced ...
