Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: Qx AJTx KJxx Kxx
Do not disagree, but I do think it is very common especially in pickup partnerships (at least in ACBL land) to play 1-way NMF and jump to show extras. Otherwise I think sequences like 1 - 1 - 1NT - 2 - 2 - 3 have to be non-forcing, which ...
15 seconds to the Bermuda Bowl
@Randy I would be very surprised if most people at the bridge club I play at have any idea about this or anything else happening at the USBF (well Lynn Baker plays at our club sometimes, so maybe they are aware she has done well). Likewise for the recent controversial ...

"Use professional directors" I'm not exactly sure what you mean by this. My impression is that most directors working NABC events are "professionals" in the sense that it is their full-time job. The directors who work the big events at NABCs are (I believe) the most experienced ACBL directors ...

To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
@Bill This was alluded to above by Steve B., but how exactly should pairs disclose varying levels of skills? When I play locally it certainly helps that I know the tendencies and skill levels of all my opponents and this may give me an advantage over my doppelganger who does ...
15 seconds to the Bermuda Bowl
If we had not seen it happen it seems you and others in this camp would loudly argue that there is no way a top expert like Cheek would ever respond incorrectly to key card, but it happened . . .

What else other than 1?
Jarek Langer's bidding problem: AQ432 KQ98 --- AT97
I like the actions that keep auction lower (maybe 3 is better than my 2nt) better than 4 because over 4 partner will often be bidding 4 and we won't really know whether we want to pass or not. Is partner going to cooperate with ...
The ACBL and the 15 second rule
"One of my points is that now that 15 seconds is enshrined in law" It would be helpful if you could quote precisely what the law you are referring to says.
