Boye Shows the Jack of Spades
you have to understand the operative scoring method of the event before you could even begin to consider Pass. If it is BAM you might give it consideration. With 30 on at rubber bridge of course you pass. But otherwise forget it.
Popular Method You Most Dislike
How do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways (in the fashion of my fellow Hoosier David Letterman....apologies in advance for those who may have whistle-blown these losers before me, today I am too lazy to read through all the entries above): (1) Bergen Raises (2) Lebensohl after ...
Dear Boye:
Dear Friends -- How about we actually focus on substantive issues here, at this pivotal and excruciatingly sensitive juncture in the history of our beloved sport, instead of quoting song lyrics whose relevance is at best marginal ? There are other threads on other sites for sharing one's musical tastes.

why not alcohol breaks? or calisthenics breaks? or breaks for massages? I have no sympathy for smokers or smoking and see no reason at all to accommodate addictions of any kind.

Geeske Joel's bidding problem: AQ7xx Qxx QJ Txx

Daniel Vikor's bidding problem: --- Q6 QT97543 KT84
(a) Yes it is a sticky point as to whether the second queen should be counted as a third "high honor from AKQ". Cogent arguments could surely be made to support either side of that profoundly learned debate. (b) Presumably, however, the point is moot, since normally the default interpretation ...
Daniel Vikor's bidding problem: --- Q6 QT97543 KT84
I agree with you totally that this is a 3D bid with normal agreements, but why do you think this bid would violate the stated methods? You certainly DO have "two high honors from AKQ". They just aren't in the same suit. But that detail was not stipulated -- when ...
Daniel Vikor's bidding problem: --- Q6 QT97543 KT84
yes, if you pass now and bid 2D later, the opponents are never going to be able to solve the problem posed by the remorseless pressure
