Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How the average 'grass-roots' club players feel about psychs
Brad How do your club players feel about false cards on defense?
What happens after a psych
" is not legal." That's far from clear in the Laws text. Whether a call that is based on a partnership understanding is legal or not depends on the system rules in effect. If it's a one-bid on a zero-count, it's probably illegal in must jurisdictions. In ...
When to open 1C when playing transfer responses
Barry wrote "Rebidding 1NT with 18-19 after 1 opener is a huge plus." Does this imply opener always accepts a 1red transfer when holding a balanced minimum? What does balanced min do after 1-1? If 1NT, what does the 18-19 do? 2NT?
In The Well: Ralph Katz

BOD Journal Motions for Atlanta
Any word on new alert rules? I was surprised to see nothing. New rules ought to be in place when the new Convention Charts take effect, but I realize this is the ACBL we're talking about.
After 1m-1H with a balanced minimum hand?
T-Walsh will be allowed on Open and Open+ but not on Basic or Basic+ as far as I can tell.
After 1m-1H with a balanced minimum hand?
In the long run, it probably doesn't much matter which approach a partnership chooses, but as Frances wrote, knowing your agreement is important. The best agreement for a partnership may depend on what related agreements they have. For example, if 2 is a checkback, responder can't preference ...
