Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
What bridge really needs to become relevant again.
Oh, to be alive 50 (or so) years from now when humanity rediscovers the game of bridge and launches into the "new renaissance" of the game, totally reincarnated with autonomous playing interfaces, full-disclosure aids, advanced bidding methods available to to new and intermediate players, and (add whatever improvement you like ...
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: AQ96 J92 JT52 K3
I agree that we don't "know" we have half the deck, but I do know that a) 10-13 NT openers happen at just a fraction of the tables and b) the situation you present (13 opp. 11) happens about as often as a blue moon - 11/12 opp. 8-9 ...
Eric Sieg's bidding problem: AQ96 J92 JT52 K3
I hate my heart holding, and it's speculative to take action, but I think it's even more dangerous to be timid. Whose hand is it? Your side holds at least half the deck, so let's hope we can find a fit. Even -100 may be a winning ...

Bridge vanity license plates
QBIDDER is my own personal plate. END PLAY was the plate of a long time friend, some time ago. I always longed for PLUS790 or some variation of that.
Ideas for Unit (or local org) Games?
Don, if that was the case it was before my time in Seattle. But I do remember calcutta events held in Vancouver BC that were not unit or district related.
Ideas for Unit (or local org) Games?
Jackpot games involve an extra contribution by each participant - say .50 or 1.00, to be pooled into the "jackpot." At the end of the game, a pre-determined number of highest scoring pairs split the jackpot. For example, in a 10 table game, if all pairs contributed 1.00, that ...
