Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Should bridge authorities be able to tell us what we can bid?
I don't see the connection here. You can have a fully disclosed agreement that a RA has ruled illegal. Say, open 1NT with a small singleton on on hands that have no 5 card suit, but correct point range.) This is illegal in ACBL, but could be fully disclosed ...
How do you play regular rdbl after partner started bidding?
I play rdbl implies no fit with a major, but says nothing about fit with a minor. Also denies a 5 card major, which is shown with a 2-level transfer. Shows 10+ HCP.
Let's eliminate "ACBL Official", "USBF Official", etc.
It would not be misleading to say this is Jan Martel on behalf of the USBF. That is how other organizations make announcements in other forums.
Let's eliminate "ACBL Official", "USBF Official", etc.
Timo, I think you misunderstand my recommendation - I would like Bridge Winners to refuse to set up accounts without including an actual name. Then the ACBL doesn't need to decide to do the right thing. And I was not specifically referencing the joke as much as all of the ...
Bridge clubs and the virus
Or (gasp!) we can just bid verbally.
Is ACBL future threatened?
I think the ACBL could survive this, in the same way most businesses survive economic downturns - they hunker down and cut expenses. Staff gets reduced, services get reduced. You come out the other side smaller, and hopefully more efficient. Likely with less members (some of whom died from the epidemic ...
Can you escape, or even lessen your chances of contracting the Corona Virus by skipping the Nationals?
So far there are less than 100 cases in the U.S from what I have heard. Not going to be that many more three weeks from now. Might be more of an issue for Montreal, bu my bet is that it will be a non-event in North America.If ...
How light are preempts these days? CLUB GAME PABC MATCHPOINT SCORING
Well my Ogust agreement (and I believe this is common) is that 2 of top 3 honors constitutes a "Good Suit". This one certainly meets that definition. I would respond to Ogust good suit-bad hand and I believe that to be a correct assessment.
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
@Adam "Every TD I've talked to hates giving slow play penalties" is the crux of the problem. Yes it is subjective. So are many UI situations, and I doubt the TDs love dealing with those either, but somehow they view the UI problems as their job and the late ...
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
Robb, I respectfully disagree. Making complicated rules and procedures and then failing to enforce them will never solve this or any other problem, but penalizing the offenders will. Directors are not being told that they must hand out penalties, and they, like everyone, want to be liked so they ignore ...
