Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ACBL Membershp Follies
I like your idea of 6-month free trial memberships. That might get people to come and get hooked. Didn't we use to have those trial memberships after finishing an ACBL sponsored bridge class? But in some sense part of our dues go towards employing directors which are then available ...

Don't directors have to be paid? I know some (most?) are employees of the ACBL and they must have a salary. Are they fully paid through what a tournament makes or are they subsidized by the ACBL? It makes a difference.
Food for thought?
1 is such a bad call that I would not even consider it. 2 has merit and is a call I would consider but probably not make. My partnership style is that when Vul I will have a reasonable hand (both for overcalling and Michaels) so even though ...
1!H-1!S
"3) I would just bid 4N over 3♥ on this hand with the South hand. " I assume you want to be in 6NT with this hand. But in another layout where opener has Kxx of clubs and the Ax of spades, North has to play the hand.
San Diego NABC Appeals Casebook with commentary available online

Really bad or not 2?
Pass and if they get to 4 pass. 4 is not a sure thing. If partner has either black Ace then 4 might be going down.
Is This a Legitimate Question?
Oops my bad. Those automatic balances are only for matchpoints.
Is This a Legitimate Question?
Ummm. Matchpoints. Open event. Not my job to teach opponents how to play matchpoints.
Denial of 4 Hearts?
I prefer X to be the other suits and 3 as competitive. 2NT would be a good raise to 3 with 4+ hearts.
What would you make of this call?
I'm all in favor of throwing FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) into the auction but this 4NT is not the way to do it. LOL, I think even beginners would know to double.
