Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Part of the problem with overloading certain venues with NABC's is the local volunteers may not be excited about all the work needed to make it successful. Many (most) of us are retired and not that interested in donating so much time to this large of an undertaking.
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: KQx AQJTxxx --- Qxx
I liked my hand until partner started bidding.
Richard Ritmeijer's bidding problem: KJ653 KJ87 J4 J7
Pass. We do not have game and I do not want to lose the match on this board.
Assign the Charge
What game were these folks playing?
Ulterior Motive
In the play listed on the club opening lead, can't declarer duck the diamond now and claim 11 tricks? North must lead a diamond or a spade giving a savvy declarer the 11th trick.
If Looney Tunes Had a Team
I would like to sic the Road Warriors in their prime on them. Whatta Rush!!!!!!!!!!!
Opener's rebid -- Forcing?
I held: Kxx, Jxxx, xxxxx, x. Partner opened 1, I bid 1 and passed her 1 bid. The score was Ave +, but I got some scowls from across the table.
If Looney Tunes Had a Team
In the open room, Hogan and Kinchloe paired up against Klink and Burkhalter. The closed room saw Newkirk and LeBeau face Schultz and Hochstetter. Carter was the caddy, and Fraulein Hilda directed.
How to explain weird bid by partner without providing Unauthorized Information
Steven: Your check is in the mail (or so I am told).
Grade The Play Schedule
Putting the Silver Ribbon and 0-10K Swiss at the same time was a bad idea IMHO. We have played in both events the last couple years and now have to choose. Maybe we will choose to stay home. We dislike IMP Pairs and we do not plan enter that event ...
