Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
None
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
National Bridge Organization?
The latest Form 990 for the ABA lists it as a 501(c)(7) (the subsection for social clubs).
Oren Kriegel's bidding problem: A4 5432 AQ65 752
At IMPs, passing at least avoids a disaster (we probably do not have a game anywhere). At matchpoints, we could easily be missing a partscore that would score very well for us. It would be good to have an agreement that double implied this sort of hand.
ACBL Table Count over Time
Richard, the ACBL has 26 years of club data at this link: https://web3.acbl.org/club-table-count/ Matthew Kidd did an analysis last year of tournament data from 2003 to 2015 herehttp://lajollabridge.com/Articles/TournamentTableCounts.htm#types (mentioned in this BW post: http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/tournament-table-counts/) I ...
BYRNES Wins Women's BAM
19 teams entered. 10 teams played in the finals.
Robin Hillyard's bidding problem: KQ92 A87 AKQ75 2
Under the ACBL alert rules, 4C is subject to a delayed alert because it [i]is a bid--not a pass, double, or redouble--above 3NT[/i] happened after the first round of bidding was over. (Make the alert after the auction but before the opening lead if you wind up declaring ...
Two Montreal bridge clubs cancel Worldwide pairs game
There were heats in April and May for other days of the week. If your pair won any of these heats, you got to go to China as well. The ACBL mentioned them in the ACBL Bulletin (in March, if I recall correctly) but left clubs to sign up themselves ...
Was I Right or Wrong?
Definitely right. New players especially deserve encouragement. Plus, opener is likely to pass anyway. All that your side really lost on this hand was 20 or so seconds of declarer's panic between his pass and when dummy came down.
Using ACBLScore and BridgeMate on an Apple Computer
The software that the DBC of Winchester uses is Bridgetab (http://www.bridgetab.com/) and it does work on Android phones. (The main disadvantage of this technology versus Bridgemates is that the tablets need frequent recharging. For a once-a-week club, this is not a problem.)
Jenni Hartsman Carmichael's bidding problem: A854 K62 AKQJ6 5
I bid 1 after considering 2 (shows an unbalanced hand, is ideally showing 6+ s, but would tend to deny spades) and double (could be right opposite a penalty pass). 1NT is not awful, but I have only one stopper, an unbalanced hand, and enough points to handle ...
Movement questions
As Kevin notes, ACBLScore has a number of built-in movements that should serve the director in this instance well. The movement that would work better than the truncated Howell is a three-quarter Howell movement. Instead of having one stationary pair, we have two stationary pairs (8 pairs less 6 rounds ...
