Tim Goodwin's bidding problem: AT5 732 KT63 AKQ
I'm not sure what double is (from either side). I think if both sides are making, responder will find another call. If only one side is making, it doesn't much matter. The big thing is we don't want to turn a plus on defense into a minus ...

Sorry: 1NT = 15-17
Last Year's ACBL President Speaks Out

Gold Rush
Ken, because the "dumbing down" extends up the ladder to the highest levels. See the resistance to new or unfamiliar methods in the US vs the rest of the world.
Gold Rush
I expect approximately 50% of ACBL members hold fewer masterpoints than the median holding; I expect more than 50% hold fewer than the mean holding.
What If Gold Rush Meant Something?
Ray, back in Junior High School the chess club kept track of Elo ratings even though our games were not sanctioned by the US Chess Federation (or whatever it is called). The folks that play party bridge at Town Hall every Tuesday afternoon keep some short-term records (but, most of ...
