Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
A recent simulation analysis from R. Pavlicek
The article says that for the 100 deals shown in detail, only the 1st 10 and the last 10 were random, and the other 80 were chosen non-randomly because the option chosen made a difference. That makes the 100 deal set decidedly non-random.

One Law for the Rich?
I'm shocked that the muckety-mucks were forced to sit in a roped off VIP section in full view of ordinary people. Why couldn't the ACBL provide for a completely private dining room with private chef and servants?
New Go Program
http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/facebook-artificial-intelligence-ai-chatbot-new-language-research-openai-google-a7869706.html Facebook was doing some research on artificial intelligence and ran into unexpected results when the chatbots invented their own language.

ACBL Convention Charts: Proposed Revisions
Under allowed openings on the Green chart 2. Any 1C or 1D opening bid showing at least Average Strength. 4. Any 1NT opening bid that is Strong and Forcing.
ACBL Convention Charts: Proposed Revisions
The 10 HCP limit is also on the GCC. The legality of opening 1 on less than 10 HCP has already been debated a lot on this forum. Presumably that argument will continue under the new charts.
ACBL Convention Charts: Proposed Revisions
Under the Green chart under allowed bidding agreement it says "Any 1C or 1D opening bid showing at least Average Strength." and average strength is defined as 10+ HCP or rule of 19. A Precision 1 is allowed. It doesn't look like it is allowed for the White ...
