Unscientific ACBL Membership Poll
Most everyone wants to learn and be the best they can be at the game. What varies is how much work they are willing to devote, and how much better they can get even with work. All of this is irrelevant to the original issue of allowing more flexibility in ...
ATB: very round zero
I think E probably should have bid 3, given that he has a 6-bagger. But I give W 100% of the blame because 3 should be a game force and therefore: - He can't pass 4 - 4 should be a stronger bid than 5 Of ...
San Diego room availability
I tried t book a room in August for San Diego and was unable to get one at the Hyatt. Right after the deadline, I tried again and got one with no problem. For me, the new policy is great!
1M open V.S. strong 1NT open with 5332 and 15-17
With spades I tend to open 1 unless other strong reasons not to. With hearts, I tend to open 1NT unless other strong reasons not to. In passout seat, will open pretty much anything in range 1 NT. Reasons not to open NT include small doubleton, especially in other ...
I still don't get this whole ethics thing
Whatever her hand is, you have to bid according to your agreements and your hand. It seems partner did, as you suspected, forget your agreement. If you bid 4, asking partner to pick hearts or spades, your job is done. If it works out well, the director may adjust ...
I still don't get this whole ethics thing
I don't see that you have any ethical problem so long as you don't pass, raise clubs, or stop short of game. You have an exceptionally good hand, nearly a strong NT, yourself, and given your agreement, 3 can only be some kind of strong forward-going bid ...
1M - 1NT - 3NT. What is your treatment for that rare bid?
Solid 6 card suit (AKQxxx or better) with stoppers (at least Qxx or Kx) in all other suits, around 16-19 HCP. Responder can choose between 3N or 4M (or cue bid another suit if he has a 3 card limit raise).
One "Big Idea" - Ratings
@John Moschella, The goals are stated above several times, but in a nutshell they are to place players in brackets where their current skill level makes them reasonably competitive. This means raising up players with high skill and low points, and lowering players with weak skill and high points. It ...
One "Big Idea" - Ratings
Steven, The system I threw out (which is only an example, but I think a reasonably workable one) is not based on accumulated master points but on masterpoints won per game played. If you play once per year and come in first that time you will have a very high ...
One "Big Idea" - Ratings
Jeff, I don't think I can legally / ethically do more than paraphrase. The original document is on the ACBL site but is limited to logged-in members. It is not my place to copy the document to an open forum. My read of it is that the purpose is, as ...
