ACBL and Live for Clubs
All good points, Richard. I was trying to get an idea if the objection was ACBL specific or just resistance to doing things in a new way. I know it took a lot to convince my mother to stop sending checks in the mail (which at least to me seems ...
ACBL and Live for Clubs
Would you using something like Venmo/Paypal etc. each month to pay the ACBL? How is payment currently being done that is more secure? Is the issue that you specifically do not trust the ACBL with your information or do you not leave your credit card on file with anyone ...

"I should perhaps have bid 6♣ but 6NT worked out well." You missed a really good 7 so worked out well seems like an overbid (not saying I would get to 7C at table). Is natural the best use of 4NT after partner cooperates with a slam try (even ...
Online NABC - Congrats to Phil Clayton

Why am I not that crazy about Bridge anymore these days?
"but are unable or unwilling to put their butts in the seat to earn the MP necessary to guarantee a top bracket position." It's expensive and time-consuming to grind out this many master points. I play what I would consider a lot of bridge (for someone who works full-time ...
Jarek Langer's bidding problem: AT7 J873 AQ652 6
That makes sense. My point was that it seems common to go through a forcing NT to make a three card limit raise and it has never made sense to me how a hand with shortness (and here a decent five card side suit!) can make the same raise as ...
Jarek Langer's bidding problem: AT7 J873 AQ652 6
What would you bid with (say) AT7 J873 A652 Qx (playing light openers) out of curiosity?
Another Proposal for SF
The demographics for regionals are probably a little different than for NABCs, but my experience has been that when regionals have pairs events where there are three sessions and you can pick which two to play in that the night attendance is a fraction of the attendance for the other ...
