Why a balancing 1NT should be any different from direct NT overcall?
The reason you bid 1NT with those points is that partner may have an opening hand. There are hands that are impossible for partner to overcall on despite having opening points. Typically these are balanced 12-14hcp without a 5-card suit (so no overcall), without 15-17hcp (so no 1NT direct overcall ...
The "New NT" (a.k.a., the Self-Rescuing Kamakazi NT)
Kinda defeats the primary purpose of the NT opening which is to define your hand so that partner knows whether to bid or pass. Where the 12-14 NT is most widely played (i.e. in the UK) there is a LOT of expertise about 'wriggling' away from 1NT when it ...
is wide range 1NT open allowed?
No self respecting young player will ever take bridge seriously if more system diversity is not allowed. Indeed it should be an expected right of passage of any pair of college kids to invent their own bidding system - and be allowed to play it. In that way they will find ...

I operate a number of bridge clubs in London, England and have multiple bridgeweb web sites. I am a 100% satisfied user. They are not free but as mentioned above the cost is modest. The choice of styles is wide so to some extent you can personalise the appearance of ...
Bridge Camp Video Concept
That's exactly what we should be doing. When Young Chelsea Bridge Club was formed in London 50 years ago, it quickly became like a singles club. A significant number of players hooked up or even got married in the early years of the club. YCBC does not really have ...
Bridge Books
I have alerted Gordon. He is interested and can offer a modest payment, though has most of these titles already in stock,
ACBL CEO: Post-Mortem
Paul is right. Mentor/mentee partnerships work well. And if you are stuck as host with a palooka their grade is taken account of. If you can ease some of the decisions out of their hands you will beat par. It's harder if you are a high ranked player ...
ACBL CEO: Post-Mortem
I object to the fact that it is economically sensible for me to run unaffiliated clubs. Before P2P all my clubs were affiliated. When P2P was coming in, Peter Stocken, then chairman of the EBU but also associated with Andrew Robson Bridge Club, was asked at an EBU presentation why ...
ACBL CEO: Post-Mortem
The EBU is the National Governing Body for bridge in England and the Channel Islands only, and not for Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland, the other constituents of the United Kingdom. UK population is approx. 66m; that of England 53m. The EBU has 613 affiliated clubs as of its 2017 ...
ACBL CEO: Post-Mortem
The 'good in business, not so engaged with bridge' route has been tried. Maybe this works for the Office General Manager who can make sure that systems are in place to service the membership, to make sure the events are being publicised, to ensure properly trained TDs are in place ...
