Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
The Best Bridge Writer
Reese by far. Head and shoulders above everyone else. Others have very good books, but if there was only one author I could recommend it would be Reese.
how to avoid a hopeless 3NT contract .... presenting Dickson
That auction is not something that comes up very often and it looks like a complex system to memorize. You might occasionally avoid a doomed 3NT with a making 3 of a minor, but then your teammates will come compare and say yes, the opponents made 3NT because the obvious ...
BW 2/1: Opener's Jump Rebid
A suit that can play opposite a void with at most 1 loser.
What is 2NT here?
Equal length in minors, less than 3 spades, and hearts/hand not good enough to pass for penalty.

Tiers of National Championship Events at NABCs
I don't understand. The ACBL NABCs are open to all already.
What is your plan?
Strength of field matters. In a club game I am always bidding and inviting. In a strong game I am bidding and then passing. Plus there are the odd times that you risk missing your 5-4 major fit.
