ACBL Ranking
Non Life Master
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Massimo Lanzarotti readmitted to the ACBL?
Premeditated collusive cheating = time and eternity ban. Life sentence is too short.
Puzzle after offensive bidding
Andrzej. calling the bidding controversial is the understatement of 2018. But at this point is see no reasonable alternative to a trump, indeed I think I'd have lead one initially.
Meaning of 2NT rebid and high reverse opposite a 2-level negative double?
For this double, North doesn't promise clubs, but he's quite unlikely to be short in clubs. With four spades and at most two hearts, North has at least seven minor suit cards, so he has club tolerance or at least five diamonds. If the latter is the case ...

Slow Play, a day behind the “ Flash”
They are, however, empowered to fire the director, and I needed the money. BTW, they were not ACBL sanctioned and did not award master points. I was hired to run the game [i]as if[/i] it were sanctioned, except that written club rules would prevail over ACBL regs (not ...
Do you consider this pass forcing?
With most partners, it was "bid or forced to game on strength." So 1-(P)-2-(2)-P for example is forcing (assuming 2/1 game force, but then most partners should know subsequent intervention doesn't cancel a game force--but not all of them do! However ...
Slow Play, a day behind the “ Flash”
By the way, is a 40% of a top PP illegal or against ACBL regulations, as opposed to recommendations?
