Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Question about declarer's sides obligations when an incorrect explanation has been given
In that case, I'm guessing no UI, and N/S were just unlucky. It happens. Bad bidding and misunderstandings sometimes work out well, just not that often.
Question about declarer's sides obligations when an incorrect explanation has been given
If an incorrect explanation was given, it should be corrected before the opening lead is made. In this case, it seems the explanation was correct, and so no correction was necessary. You didn't say whether there was any squirming or hesitating, if so the pass of 3NT by opener ...
Bakersfield club game
It's a club game. You didn't say how experienced these players are, but education is far more important than score adjustments. Just let it go, and the director can explain to them later how important it is to remember their agreements if they're not going to have ...
An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers
No need to worry, the master points cannot possibly become less valuable than they already are.
Disposing of old cards
Keep one old deck of each color, that way if a card gets damaged, it can be replaced without replacing the entire deck.
Transfer breaks after 2NT
We open 2NT on all balanced 20-21 plus any 19 with a decent 5 card suit. We don't worry about small doubeltons. Others may differ, and as you pointed out, mileage may change depending on your choices.

Bad bidding practices that you nevertheless see many long-time players engage in
When my wife started playing, she was partnered fairly often with a much more experienced (but not better) player who proclaimed that 4C was ALWAYS Gerber, at any point in any auction. Sure enough, there came a time when this woman opened 4C preemptively. My wife dutifully reported her ace ...
Bad bidding practices that you nevertheless see many long-time players engage in
Last month my wife and I played in the Flight A District 9 finals of the North American Pairs. We're Flight B players, but this year, for the first time, the Flight A and Flight B finals were not held concurrently, so we were able to play in both ...
Bad bidding practices that you nevertheless see many long-time players engage in
My observation has been that most of these bad, but experienced, players have never played against good competition, and have no idea how really bad they are. This especially true of online players who proclaim themselves experts, but in reality are worse than the average club player. They never learn ...
