When asked by the director of 2003 NABC+ Fast Pairs if I am sure that I deserve a seed and I said probably since we won the event last year.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ACBL Board of Governors mtg
Randy, ~98% of those that enter know that they have 0% chance of finishing 1st overall. However, it is nice for many to see where they stack up against the best and having a good session or two is a "win" for many. There were decent session scratch masterpoint payouts ...
ACBL Board of Governors mtg
Thx for the youtube link; I listened in to most of the meeting. I was surprised at some of the comments made by the presenters, but one in particular baffled me. Near the beginning, a statement was made that they were very surprised to NOT see a significant rise in ...
Steve Myerson's bidding problem: Q3 98752 --- AKQJT3
5 card majors is a system that I follow; it has worked for many years for a pair of Hall of Famers (Peter Boyd/Steve Robinson).
Steve Myerson's bidding problem: Q3 98752 --- AKQJT3
Abstain since I would have opened 1.
John Portwood's bidding problem: KJT764 AT5 --- AQ54

Sarik Goyal's bidding problem: --- 9874 5432 J9765
"Assume standard forcing pass agreements" is hard to do when I bid 2 on 1 HCP.
Boyd, Bramley, and Radin Elected to ACBL HOF
Congratulations to everyone that was elected this year. I am especially happy to see Peter make the Hall of Fame. I do not go to many tournaments outside of the MD/VA area, but I have had the pleasure to play against Peter many times locally over the years. He ...
Sven Pride's bidding problem: A753 KJ973 5 J72
You may not see the point, but the number of gains from being able to show 4+ trumps for partner's major suit is light years above the need for a value showing 2nt bid.
Leo Lasota's bidding problem: A2 A943 9743 Q93
I have NEVER had an auction VUL at IMPS where partner cuebids as passed hand, overcaller bids something else, advancer rebids 2nt, and overcaller passes.
