Five Card Major Required to Respond 1 of the Major to a 1 Club/1 Diamond opener
Another useless poll
Which ever is parallel (same as) to the rest of the system (for memory purposes)
ACBL Search Committee Up and Rolling
And I know more that a few engineers who went on to get an MBA.
In search of an appeal (20 years ago) from ACBL nationals
Knowing the year would help. I have the 1998 Chicago NABC Appeals booklet. Did not find your appeal in the NABC section. I also have the 1999 Fall NABC in Boston. Not indexed very well.
ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
Richard: Participation was poor despite being well publicized, expensive and MP awards were lower than some special games (no high scores locally).
ACBL Chief Executive Dismissed
Our local clubs all participated in REACH. It was not successful and we won't do it again.
Light Opening Canape Bids
Long time canapé player here. We don't canapé with both majors, just bid them normally. That works just fine. Another approach with 5M and 4: raise 1NT response to 2NT with non-minimum hand with 4 good clubs. To show 5-5 jump in clubs.
Light Opening Canape Bids
Yes, I have a xerox copy, have tried for years to get the hard copy. I have played this method and strength with a strong Diamond opening, 16+ hcp, and an all purpose 1 club opening of 12 - 15 hcp. We gave it up to play 10 - 15 hcp canapés ...
Responder Shows responses to strong 2!C - symmetric style
Tough hands if not playing a forcing club system. Playing 2/1 with paradox negatives, stilll difficult hands. Since responder's suits are so poor no known system will discover the Diamond slam. Thanks for your efforts in design.
Gatlinburg 2018 Bridgescore+ Technology Details
I looked for the computer to check MPs, didn't find it so I used the Colorado springs webpage.
