Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Legal Aid Requested
The Laws don't mention HCP, but the ACBL Rules do. Law 40 covers partnership understandings, see http://www.worldbridge.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/2017LawsofDuplicateBridge-paginated.pdf - page 35. ACBL rules states that both parties must use the same HCP for NT, but you are allowed different judgement and styles ...

@Michael: There is a difference between the rules and what we would like to do. I'd prefer the rules to be less strict. Example: I play weak NT. 10-12. So I must bid 1NT with Ax Axxx Axxx xxx and can't upgrade. If I do and bid 1 ...

We probably need to get some feedback from some ACBL TDs on this. Your system should not have anything that allows for "illegal" bids. 3=3=2=5 is acceptable to respond 1 after partner opens 1 because this is specifically stated in the Convention Chart. If systemically ...

It's published. It's an agreement. Least lies aren't in the rules or ACBL conventions. I don't disagree that the rules may need updating. Sorry - I've spent a lot of time this week on some of the problems with the ACBL/WBF rules and its conflicting ...

ACBL have Alert Charts, Alert Procedures, Alert Pamphlets, Convention Charts. They are not in sync with each other. The Convention Chart is considered the most recent. http://web2.acbl.org/documentLibrary/play/Convention-Chart.pdf. See Definitions. 3 card minor opening bids and responses are natural. You have a problem with ...

This was my original comment. It was incorrect. Left in so there is context for other later comments: -- Original That would be considered a 'method' and not be allowed. I'm not saying I like these rules; just that we have to all play by them in ACBL land. ACBL ...

Kit: You are correct. I'll edit my earlier reply. I was emailing ACBL last week about some other discrepancies between the various Convention Card/Pamphlet/Chart etc and got confused with this one.
Legal Aid Requested
Not allowed per ACBL Convention Chart. Must have 4 cards in a major. You are not allowed to have a system where certain awkward bids are conventional (such as the one you prescribe). Some of the 2/1 book (I think it is Walsh) also have recommended bids; but they ...
seeking information on ACBLscor's .MOV (movement) files
The format is relatively easy to deduce if you have a binary editor. I have some tools from ACBLscore+/Bridgescore+ that convert from MOV to HTML but nothing that I have released. I think using the ACBL tools is probably the easiest.
