Webber Cup 2016
On the 1st board , I dont like partner's 1NT - I much prefer DBL with that hand. After a DBL you would not miss 4H.

Adjusted Scores - not related to cheating
"Especially at the club level, we cannot penalize people for forgetting what their bids mean." I think it is a positive idea to provide a strong incentive to players at all levels (and especially at club level) to play only those conventions which they are capable of remembering. When a ...
Roman (O/E) Carding
The idea of this ordering is that the "oddest" and "evenest" cards are low cards , so you can discourage or encourage without wasting high spots , that might win tricks.
