Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
History resource
He did speak up loudly and often a couple of years ago at a BoG meeting that followed the debacle with ACBLScore-.
History resource
Don, we know you are a great font of knowledge about bridge history. Since you and Linda have both been chairs of the BoG, could you provide us with the history of how the BoG operated in the past? For example, when I joined the BoG 8 years ago there ...
What does this 4NT bid mean?
4N Keycard for clubs is of limited value since only the 5C response will keep you from bidding slam. Since responder is the one bidding 4N and opener has shown a very good and long club suit, it is highly likely opener has more than 1 keycard. Depending on whether ...
Nice article about chess cheater
This is nothing compared to Claude Bloodgood. He was a USCF master-rated chess player in prison for life for murder 1. In 1974 he was allowed to play outside the prison under the control of a prison guard. He overpowered the guard and escaped, but was captured a short time ...

Reaching out to the membership
District Directors and District Presidents get an Excel list of all members in their district (at least they did when I was a District president). Some members do not have their email addresses available, but many more do. Even if the ACBL does not provide this list anymore, candidates for ...
How would you rule?
OK, Ed. I meant to ask if North's concept of his 3N bid was alertable. Even I would assume a 3N bid to play is not alertable in Slovakia.
How would you rule?
We should also be told whether 3N is alertable in Slovakia. Everyone appears to assume so, but those of us in the ACBL are no experts on Slovakian regulations. If 3N is alertable and was not, then yes, a rollback to 4X would be called for.
