NY Regional 7 pm Horizontal IMP Pairs (Wednesday - Thursday) May, 24 -25
Hi, I'm also looking for a partner for this event. I'll send a PM with details
Are 16 HCP a Must for Precision 1 Club
Precision is my preferred system. I would gladly open 1C on hands short of 16 HCP that I thought were worth that much, except for the fact that it's necessarily some distributional hand with 13 HCP or so, thus the opponents have something and will feel that they got ...
An Elo Rating System for Bridge
I think this is a no-brainer for those of us who play bridge to improve our games, compete, and win (probably most people on this website). The power ratings on the Colorado springs website are a great start but it needs to be expanded and made standard. If you were ...
(pre-)alerting the Overcall Structure
I played this system with a regular partner. What you're required to prealert are the extremely light 1-level overcalls (4-14, could be a bad 4 card suit), and you must alert when such an overcall is made i.e. (1D)-1S is alertable. I think all of the other ...

The Balanced Club
If you're going to play this, why don't you just play Polish Club?
You be the judge, jury, and executioner!
Wait, the Precision "nebulous 1" is a conventional bid now? Or is that because this variant only promises 0? I thought that if it promised 2 as usual it would not fall under conventional.
Noble Shore's bidding problem: --- Axx ATxxxx QJ9x
I don't think that's alertable (which is one reason why that treatment can be sneakily effective.)
2014 World Championships to be in Sanya, China (per WBF announcement)
I wouldn't trust the seafood prepared there to not give you dysentery.
