Unusual Coup
3NT was dismissed too easily. True, KQ is a bad holding but I disagree with the argument that solid clubs are necessary after the 3 bid. Opener holding Qxx or JTx would likely be enough. Indeed, on the actual layout 3NT makes. If south declares on a low heart ...
Is bridge dying? Maybe, maybe not.
I posted a chart on BridgeWinners in 2013: I don't have the data in front of me, but I believe physical clubs have a slight decline the last few years, and online club games have leveled off generally, with an anomalous decline in ...
Open Honolulu Discussion Thread
Others have commented about the 2003 Long Beach NABC which was a success in my opinion even though the tablecount was relatively modest for a summer NABC. Anaheim nationals seemed to have shifted to San Diego so that may open up possibilities in the LA area notwithstanding the cited difficulties ...

Mike: it WAS higher than $600K. This information is publicly available in the Bridge Bulletin archives - March IIRC.
Avoiding another Honolulu

Separately, terms of key hotel contracts - and several of the contracts themselves - were reviewed in Honolulu by some board members. More broadly, Horn ...
Open Honolulu Discussion Thread
Don: a minor technical note. In Atlanta, a ruling was made that a motion will be considered a new motion if the text of the motion is changed at all - even minor changes.

Steve: the board has cut their costs roughly in half since 2012 with an additional $50K savings that I personally expect in 2019 from some internal changes in how we operate. In short, the board HAS been leading.
NABC Entry Fees Increase as of Summer, 2019
Actually, Don; a co-sponsor of the motion capably explained to me how elasticity/inelasticity pertains to the revised motion. Now, the original motion struck me as an example of reverse "price discrimination" but as the bridge columns say, "I'll leave that to the reader."
OMG! $70 **PER TABLE** Luxury Tax
Hi Phil, the ACBL had already anticipated turnout well below 9000, so that has been factored into financial estimates.
Honolulu BOD Journal
Jeff: I was a sponsor of this motion (originally submitted for the summer NABC and deferred to the fall NABC). As I've written elsewhere, the primary purpose of the motion is to start moving certain committees "off the board" in the sense that 1) they are not part of ...
