about me
Retired from missile defense industry. I played a lot from 1975-1987, then took about 15 years off from bridge when raising kids and coaching baseball, basketball, softball, and soccer. Then, I played 1-2 Nationals and little else for another 10 years until retiring. Since then, I've had a chance to play a lot more. Currently serve as VP, Recorder, and BOG (1st Alternate to the BOD) for D10.

Sergiu Covaliu's bidding problem: 65 AKQ9873 T 652
Sure, given that 3 is 2 suited. I was referring to the possibility that this was not their actual agreement and North assumed it was natural. Likely that was not the case, but when people play different systems with different people, sometimes they mis-remember. If both partners were on ...

William Kochneff's bidding problem: --- AJT43 AQT975 AK
WK: It's fine to play whatever system you want. Plenty of great players played a similar system 60+ years ago. Hopefully, the negative comments were just meant to get you to clarify your system (given than it's different from the current standard) when you post a problem. Now ...

Not clear you needed the qualifier at the end.

Nor me. I did get the ACBL Live survey, though.
Sergiu Covaliu's bidding problem: 65 AKQ9873 T 652
Maybe he's entitled to bid. But, maybe the 3 bidder was the one who forgot. I'd like to look at their CC.

Sounds like a UI situation where 5 should not be allowed.

Georgiana said: "Al, I think your chemistry professor was my calculus professor. He would write with his right hand, and move along the board erasing with his left hand as he went." I had a substitute math professor who taught some of my classes a time or two (he was ...
Ulf Nilsson's bidding problem: K3 4 AQJ53 QT983
Assuming 4 is a xfer, 4 can be both minors.
Awkward fourth suit forcing auction
I play that with a "punt" hand (i.e., no fit, 4th suit not stop), I rebid the cheapest suit I have previously bid. So for #3, it is an easy 3. With a minimum, I would always raise s with 1354, so on this auction, 3 can ...
