Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
It is unfortunate that Joe cannot participate as a player, but he will still be an important, useful team member and I wish them the best of luck to become world champions!
New Suit in High Level Competition
How about 'all of the above'?
Sean McNally's bidding problem: T5 AJ8 K52 K9743
Perhaps for them, but not necessarily for everyone.
Steven Gaynor's bidding problem: J64 864 A975 T73
So the rest of the story is that if you bid 2, partner will cue bid. Now if you show your real 4 card suit you can get to at least the making game of 5 +1. Partner has KQxx, A, KQxxxx, AK.
Christina Syrakopoulou's bidding problem: 3 7543 T2 AT9654

We need to go back to a 9:30 start for the BOG. It is unfortunate that Richard had to keep saying we have to hurry along because we are running out of time. We need to assert ourselves as an important piece of the organization, not some House of ...
Expected turnout for the Soloway KO in San Francisco?
My idea was for the Soloway to be six days long with a 0-15K Soloway event starting simultaneously. After two days of qualifying the top 16 teams would be in the KO phase and the losers of the semi's (two teams of players) could drop into the 2nd day ...
Ribbon events
The Detroit NABC in 2008 was in the spring when the Silver Ribbon pairs was played. You can use a Blue Ribbon Q for the Silver Ribbon event, so you could use up two BRQ's every year if you are 60+ (soon to be 65+).
Soliciting ideas for a spring event preceding the NAP flight B and C finals
I agree that 6 sessions is a lot, but I was just noting the event in which I played. I like the idea of the under X MP events. When country clubs hold their end of season golf championships they may have many more flights than we have strata so ...
Minimum expectation for an explanation
In my most common partnership it shows clubs and does not promise or deny extra values. If they persist I would say it will be a director call if you have clubs and partner leads one.
