Max Schireson's bidding problem: Tx 9 AJ7xx KQJ8x
3. Partner wants to punish one of the majors. I need to show I may not help much. Now if they want to bid 3 and partner hits that....
Corrected score?
Why not X 3? I would like to rule result stands for N/S, 3N -1 for E/W. E/W should add 'natural' or 'artificial' to the explanation of the 3 call. I would X in either case and if we go -530 or the like, well ...

Andy Caranicas's bidding problem: T83 9763 KQ7 QT9
They probably forgot to bid game.
Gold Rush
The Gold Rush events are enabling tournaments to be held at nicer venues. They bring players to those events and keep other in the game. This MYTH about having to always play up is just that. Let people find their own level of satisfaction. As long as they are playing ...

Las Vegas Lodging
The ACBL negotiates a rate with the hotels for the NABC that is usually a good rate, but those willing to dig can often find better rates depending on demand as noted by another poster above. Sometimes circumstances change like in Kansas City a couple years ago when the Big ...
ATB-missed slam
Why can’t 3 be asking to bid 3N with a diamond stopper? The majors and clubs are taken care of and S knows N may be short in . What does S bid with xxx in ?
