Best bridge advice ever:
Find another game. (and so I have)
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
IIRC, Birmingham was well attended by people in the Southeast for whom it was an easy day's drive. So she was partly right.
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Cincinatti shortly after - well, the county IIRC - then passed a fairly severe anti-gay measure which meant the ACBL by its own bylaws could no longer go there. No idea if it's even on the books today.
$375K ACBL Boondoggle & Hawaii Fallout!
Aussies and East Asians. Look for sizable contingents of each.
Or, South has a normal 1 overcall and mandatory reopening double over 3. Whichever way you do it, the 3rd hand opening has no business succeeding against anyone competent.
Open Orlando Discussion Thread
Well, in poker, young and middle class people are somehow finding ways to come up with $5,000 and $10,000 buy ins, so yes. A better question would be has the cost of bridge tournaments increased faster than inflation. I realize you want everything to stay the same prices ...
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
This subthread is all well and good, but I must insist it stop, as none of this knowledge will help me get laid.
Deportment -- who's at fault?
Because, of course, with UDCA it's actually low - high rather than just low that determines the attitude or count. So any one card by itself, other than a deuce, isn't determinant.
What are your pet peeves?
Bridge players, with their whining, their insistence that everything revolve around them, their putting hospitality food into their purses (men generally don't do this), their obliviousness, their breathing of air.
Multi 2!D and Weak Twos
I believe this is Zia's preferred method but can't think of any other American pairs offhand that play it. Martel-Fleisher maybe?
