Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Not enough aces
I agree that 4H was an overbid, but I think the bigger problem was that North's failure to splinter in clubs told South that his club King was working. What was South supposed to do? North bid game opposite a possible six count, but South has a full opener ...
ATB
At our club, J9xxx and 10 points at unfavorable vulnerability is considered quite reasonable. Some will even stretch that. Those players have thousands of master points to demonstrate that their judgement is sound.
Can you get to game here?
No.
YBTJ--Who is more to blame for this disaster?
A positive in hearts is the one positive bid that never gets in opener's way. Relaxing the requirements for that positive only makes a lot of sense.
Does anybody dislike 2/1?
I play almost exclusively match points, and I prefer Standard American (even though it is no longer standard). I also strongly prefer Weak NoTrumps. We do play some things that are definitely non-standard though ... I imagine that when we play in National events, my wife and I may well be ...
What, if anything, do you miss about bridge in 1970?
Richard, I used to play regularly with a woman who would wait until everyone had picked up their bidding cards and returned them to the box, and then ask for a review of the auction. She must have done this on at least 1/3 of the hands.
Bidding Improvement With Weak NT?
The biggest advantage of transfers is the ability to generate more sequences of bids. That does not change as the NoTrump range changes.
What Are We Going To Do About Slow Play?
Vugraphs for other formats would be more interesting if one could follow either a pair, or follow one deal, with updates on the results from other tables. But for now, team matches are the only watchable format. And if we're hoping that non players will tune in to see ...
Why Hasn't ACBL Replaced SAYC w/ a Basic 2/1 System Instead?
I imagine that most don't play 2/1 GF because they learned SA back in the Dark Ages. For myself, I can play 2/1 GF, but I feel that it is not optimal for match points, so I prefer not to play it. I know, swimming against the ...
Why Hasn't ACBL Replaced SAYC w/ a Basic 2/1 System Instead?
Not all players worship at the altar of 2/1 GF. In tournaments the vast majority do play it, but I'd guess that at our club fewer than half do.
