Open Philadelphia Discussion Thread
Actually, only $.95 for seniors (or so says the 85 year old man who sat next to me on train)

well, if there was room for everyone to park for $5 it probably would be a much less interesting place to visit . . . the premium should be much higher imo to park downtown in a major metropolitan area
Board 9 from the 03/03/2018 Common Game
At our table E declared 3nt on a club lead (with no interference). After N won and shifted to a spade, S is marked with six clubs. E unblocked spades, crossed to hand in hearts, played the spade jack and won the spade return. Now on the run of hearts ...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: K9 AQ KT7 AKQ642
I think 3NT is right. At the table my initial thought was 3NT, but I talked myself into doubling on the thin chance we had a slam, which didn't work well (and bridgewinners seems to agree I was wearing rose-colored glasses). If the auction continues X-4d/4h is 4nt ...

Is ACBL Aiming for Ridicule?
I'm happy to see the ACBL listened to the feedback from some of the players who actually participated in this event and lengthened the time you had to complete the boards. To make things even better and address some of the concerns in this thread (although undoubtedly people will ...
Shawn Drenning's bidding problem: JT764 5 AKT863 6
So people play xx is to play and demands a pass and passing is just a suggestion to play 5dx and everything else is as if they didn't interfere? At the table N redoubled, but unsure if we were on same page I pulled as S. Both 5d and ...

5 shows 1 or 4 spade key cards, not diamond key cards
