A 'Bridge Center' Organization
I am interested but I do not fit the bridge center model mostly because I do not have a location and also the size of the games. I run 3-5 games a week at 2-3 locations depending on the time year (less in the winter). 1 run 1 newcomer game ...
Best e-Bridge

I have just started to re-recommend bestebridge to my students in the last couple of weeks. It is a great way to learn.

BW 2/1: Opener's 2M Rebid
Agreed. 2M shows 6 and 2NT is best bid if nothing else to tell partner such as 4 or 4 or 4+ card support. Partner has opening hand as well and if they do not like NT they can bid again we are in a GF auction.
