Grassroots Participation in ACBL Elections
My feeling is that only about 30% of board members in any non profit actually do the work, most of the rest just attend the board meetings and contribute their thoughts there. This is from a long time experience Then you have the non board members that provide a vital ...
Mystery of Barry Crane
Took way too long, but finally solved. The AP story I saw, said he had confessed. DNA is starting to work wonders.
David Caprera's bidding problem: Txx --- ATx AKJTxxx
We are in a forcing auction. So I pass for partner to further describe his hand. Expect it to go 5 dbl by partner and now I will have to make the guess, but am leaning toward passing 5 doubled as partner my well have too many wasted ...

Mike Cassel's bidding problem: J5 QT2 KT2 KT865

An Advance Twist of Alan Schwartz' ATB +200
I would double for takeout again and depending on the response make a decision from there.
1min - 1!S - 1NT - 2!H playing reverse Flannery and XY NT
Depends on shape and how weak. Since I play limited openers with this am not afraid of 1 diamond being passed out. especially white.
