New Tournament Policy
Non-members and members who are not paid up pay higher entry fees at tournaments so it doesn't seem to be about 'freeloading'.
Fail to alert, the ruling and what wold you have bid?
Some of my partners think I'm from another planet :-)
Thank You to Vugraph Operators
And as always, thanks to you too, Jan
Why play Reverse Suit Preference?
I played it for ten years because my partner wanted to. I always made sure the opps understood SP was upside down but they would often forget. In some cases after they'd misplayed a hand because of it, they'd say they thought we were kidding. Other than confusion ...
UI, How would you rule?
2 was a reverse and opener didn't think 3 was FSF, they thought it natural. N was the only one at the table who thought 3 was FSF.
Thank you Richard Pavlicek!
I once got .5 MP for -2000 playing a 3 table Howell. You never know :-)
Was GIB programmer sane?
After opening 1NT and seeing my robot opponent show spades and a minor with 4-0-0-9, nothing they do can surprise me.
