Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Upside down signal from H(H)T9
Miles' argument was that if there were say 4 possible values for x including the 9, 2 will be read as low and if you play T holding the 9, the signal is readable 3/4 of the time with the second x being the problem case. Whether you agree ...
Upside down signal from H(H)T9
The example Miles gave in his book, basically West vs 3nt led a spade from Qxxxx Ax Qxx JTx, dummy won ST from AT doubleton, marking declarer with SKJx, and declarer now sets up a diamond suit, and west is in with DQ. He at that point is looking at ...
A possibly crazy idea for ACBL skip bid procedure
I think ignorance/stupidity have to far outrank dishonesty, Hanlon's razor. I have to say though that I've never noticed opps using selective use of the stop card as a signal, noticed anyone using it on one board but not on another. Mostly no one uses them. A ...
A possibly crazy idea for ACBL skip bid procedure
The instacalls being complained about are being made < 1 second after the bid, not after ten seconds. They are made often before the stop card has even been removed. In the ACBL, unlike other jurisdictions, procedure was NOT to leave the card out 10 sec, then next player can bid ...
A possibly crazy idea for ACBL skip bid procedure
I'm a one bid card picker (mainly habit from slick newer cards sliding all around messing up the sequence) but if this one bid box per table was actually put in use I'd switch to the stack method to make it easier on other players and prevent the ...
A possibly crazy idea for ACBL skip bid procedure
I found the article. It was combined with a bunch of joke proposals but I actually like the idea. No insufficient bids. Control tempo in tempo sensitive auctions. Fewer bids out of turn. What's not to like?
A possibly crazy idea for ACBL skip bid procedure
Reminders don't seem to do anything. Some opps want to fight over a mild admonishment to pause, "you're really supposed to wait 10 sec over skip bids". I guarantee many will think no more stop card = no pause either. Should I just call director every instacall and make ...

A possibly crazy idea for ACBL skip bid procedure
Vast majority of my opponents don't seem to be distracted at all by the red card, they have their bid on the table before I even have had a chance to pick it up 1 second later. If they didn't think about their bid until I removed the ...
Stephen Tu's bidding problem: AQJ986 xxx J98 A
Is that true? There exist moderate hands that have fewer than 3 spades (can't raise), fewer than 4 hearts (can't double), mediocre clubs (unlikely to want to penalty pass). 2344/2353/2254 hands not strong enough to bid 2nt/2d. To me it would be useful to distinguish ...
