Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Michaels convention
Right, "Michaels" only refers properly to the direct seat cue convention. This cue in sandwich position doesn't have a name associated with it normally, and is usually either natural or other two suits, popularity varies by regional preferences. I would never assume spades+hearts without very specific discussion, that ...
Mike Cailean's bidding problem: KJ43 Q65 A2 QT95
1S caters to finding 4-4 spade fit opposite minimal responding hand not strong enough to check back ... wouldn't such responding hands negative double?
Stephen Tu's bidding problem: KQxxx Ax QJT8 Kx
In real life the no brainer choice didn't work very well. I was just checking if I was supposed to do something else.
Stephen Tu's bidding problem: Jx AKQx Ax AQJTx
Oh never mind I constructed poll wrong originally and didn't notice, opening bid was 1d, sorry
Stephen Tu's bidding problem: Jx AKQx Ax AQJTx

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 ...

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 ...
