Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Opening 1 NT point range on convention card
The trouble, IMO, is the use of an imperfect evaluation system for disclosure (and regulation). I do not believe the Laws mention HCP, when speaking of valuation the Laws say something like "a King less than average" which is not the same as "7 HCP". If disclosure is made with ...
[ACBL] Open Chart Allows These Bids?

ACBL surcharge at tournaments good or bad?
Wizards of the Coast offers a free membership/player number to any Magic the Gathering player and players do not pay different fees depending upon whether or not they are members. IMO, ACBL ought to essentially do the same. Provide every player with a player number and record masterpoints (and ...
