Ben Kristensen's bidding problem: Q QT QJTxx AKQxx
Given the terrible nature of preempts in this era, I almost feel compelled to bid as partner could have an opening hand with 3 spades and go quietly, as I did not bid. Anything could be right, would probably pass at IMPs
Precision help wanted 1
I also view pass as 0 - 4 HCP and 2NT or 3 Clubs as about 50 - 50. Problem with 2NT is partner with 5 diamonds and 4 clubs may bid diamonds and miss the 4-4 club fit. I rate game with this hand less than 50%. Almost certainly fails with ...
The Death of Teams
To the point, most of the better players played in the team game on Saturday. There were 6 very good teams surviving = 24 players = 12 pairs. There were not 12 pairs in the pair game equivalent to the team game. Many of those pairs (if not most) would have won ...
The Death of Teams
If the ACBL continues with allowing 2 session Swiss teams by division and masterpoint ranked to a 4 team KO final, our area will be fine. Forced to have Handicapped KO's will kill the KO's in our area.
The Death of Teams
District 14 was allowed to do this in Minneapolis on an experimental basis. By guaranteeing two KO brackets we at least stopped the quick fall of the KO numbers. I considered that a big win given what I was seeing.
The Death of Teams
To give an example of what Peggy is talking about in 3 weeks District 14 will have a regional in Iowa City, IA. Due to SOF the KO's will probably pay between low 20's and low 30's in masterpoints. The pair games (with the Gold Rush under ...
The Death of Teams
Thanks for the Information Tom. Karen, my point has been that Champaign is far closer to eastern Iowa than Minneapolis. We used to draw here from a very wide network. I can remember 100+ table events even in sectionals. I do agree with the posters that claim many players do ...
The Death of Teams
Karen, ACBL records do not go back that far, it may have been in Springfield, but District 8 had a regional back then the week before Memorial Day. Looking at the players at your regional outside of Bruno several of the Wisconsin players along with Bob Otto from Iowa have ...
The Death of Teams
Karen you are correct on the shorter season for running tournaments. Anything after October does not draw attendance from out of town. However you are very wrong on the Champaign Regional. Gopher has been run on Memorial Day weekend for as long as I have played (this is back to ...
The Death of Teams
Do not know if would do any better elsewhere, we have a wonderful tournament chairperson who has managed to find hotels that are nice and will have us to this point in time (her family has chaired the tournament for over 40 years). When she retires from this post, will ...
