about me

I often work in cellular sales/customer service I love bridge and crosswords (french, nyt and cryptics) . I'm a bidding systems expert/geek I've been a pro player and director on/off for many years, but I now mostly play for enjoyment of this very frustrating passion. I'm a recovering alcoholic for 10+ years and will help anyone I can in that department

Normand Houle's bidding problem: x x AQxxxx Kxxxx
Jim had the right feeling . Opponents soon found themselves in 4 X making
Gabay and McDevitt Win Mixed Pairs
Was this ruling correct?
As long as there is not a good guideline for directors to follow, it will create many problems. Usually I give offending pairs AV- or woerse (table result) and tell them to change it. I check 2 rounds later, they havent changed it so I give them 3 full boeards ...

Masterpoint Survey

Masterpoint Survey
Hard to answer Should be higher for bracket swiss ( competition a lot harder ) and lower fpr compact KO ( randomness / short matches )
