Multi 2D/Mini-Multi 2D and the new ACBL convention charts
raNdAy: I assume from your spud post that you not only purposefully type in incorrectly but also pronouce it incorrectly. The system was named after the Acol bridge club which amazingly enough was sited on Acol Road, London, England.
Multi 2D/Mini-Multi 2D and the new ACBL convention charts
Randy: Learning to bid naturally is hardly a waste of time. BTW, it's Acol, not ACOL.
Multi 2D/Mini-Multi 2D and the new ACBL convention charts
Tom. Agree. If the regulators want to control this, they should simply require that a multi 2 is a one round force and bar pychic responses.
Upcoming, Challenging NABC's?
Phil: Columbus is the home of White Caslte and Wendy's with Bob Evens' nearby, so your culinary needs will be met. Culture is taken care of by the Drainage Hall of Fame. Actually it is a rather nice town.

Stephen: Rational thought seems to have litle to do with system regulations here in North America. You can open 1 with A32 AKQ 2 765432 but you can't open that with 1. No responding 1 with that hand either. Even the new Basic+ chart (to be ...
"The worst play I have ever seen"
Peg: Do NOT steal my lines. My lawyer will be calling your lawyer. :) That said, I do agree with your feelings about this. An error? Certainly. The worst ever? Not even close.
The Non-Polish Club
Thanks for the write up. Interesting. How do yoo handle 4441 hands? I assume the 12-15s are opened 1NT? How about the 16+? Thanks
