Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
None
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
"Jeopardy" calendar
Agreed. Well done for answering in the form of a sneaky question.
Appeal from Kansas City
"Anytime a TD asks a player for an opinion, that player already has more information than a player at the table. The player being polled knows there is a problem and is on alert." That's the key, right there. Well said.
IS MY PARTNER INSANE PART 2
I'll vote that 4NT is insane. Pard opened 1 "natural" which in any natural system limits his holdings to 20 points, plus or minus. I'm told I've shown a weakish hand with 2NT. Slam isn't on, pard. Lynn Johannesen above suggests pard could have AK109 ...
IS MY PARTNER INSANE? Part 1
I am also bidding 3 Would not want to bid 4 as 3N a likely landing spot as any with no fit.
Gutless, conservative, or reasonable?
Agreed. Wondering about OP.
KO: Waving the white flag not allowed? (ACBL)
Interesting, Mr. Adams. I'm with Mr. Yomtov, I'd like to read your reasoning. As counterpoint, the sport where I routinely see the best sportsmanship is Curling. Players call fouls on themselves, genuinely applaud good shots by the opposition, and don't like to score because the other team ...

Turkish Winter Nationals- New Record
Excellent news for Bridge. I was pleasantly surprised to find a friendly rubber game in Sirince. Perhaps I should not have been surprised.
Can Opener Pass After Reverse?
I wouldn't want to do it, but I'd hate to hold: x AQJx Axx AQJxx and be stuck trying to come up with something clever. My partner knows I'm nowhere near good enough to play 2NT, so maybe I could bid that...
Firm Justice - No Matter the Person's "Status"
Oh good grief. These are the examples to which we are to aspire? 1) The substance the Jamaican runner tested positive for is Methylhexanamine. True, it was banned in 2008. It was banned from 2004-11 actually. Fromn 2011, it was reclassified as a Specified Substance, that is, it could have ...
