The matter is not about driving to slam. It is about passing 6 with a little singleton and not correcting to 6 in a “known” 8th fit.

Kieran, that's what I would have expected, however…

It seems that BW community has much more difficulty passing 6 when presented as a bidding poll :-)

Modified, the choice was just to state that the adjustment would imply South rectification to 6. Thanks.

You earned the right to know opener's hand:
K
K2
AKQJ8742
84

A kind of doubtful 2 opening…

Closed room started with 1 and landed in 6 just made (don't ask)

Yu,
3 showed a 1-suited hand. Opener can not have a 2nd suit. 3 forced to, at least, game.

Over 3, I'd say that:
3: fit + control,slam try or last bid before 3NT :-)
3NT: to play
4: fit + control, slam try
4: only s
4: fit
4: ERKCB for .

These are more or less guesses as the auction has not been really discussed.

2 opening is defined as :

- strong 2 in a major or
- game minus 1,5 (2) tricks

with the A, maybe N would bid 5, not sure that 6 implies the A

indeed, pass denied 1st or 2nd round control.
btw, not sure about your idea of captaincy in this auction…

my bad, i was only considering competitive bridge.
for social bridge, is the use (or the misuse or the non-use) of the stop card a real issue ?

it is more aimed to know the full deal, then one may check if its vote would have been the “working” one, than to know what actually happened at the table.

“What about participants in paid ACBL and BBO masterpoint tournaments or those who rent robots for a fee??? Some pay thousands in tournament fees a year.”

as I don't use the web version yet, I don't know. Does it prevent from playing in paid ACBL / BBO tournament ? Does it prevent from renting robots ?
I suspect those services are still provided in the web version, and again, if using these services on the web version is unbearable, one can still stop paying for such services and/or try to find a better suitable offer on the market…(good luck with that research though)

“I do a lot of teaching on BBO, and the capabilities for teaching are HOPELESS. There are a lot of things I can do in the windows client that are flat-out impossible in the browser.

I vote for a HUGE number of complaints to BBO asap”

I suppose you do your teaching as FREELY as BBO is ?

If yes, you may have a point.

If no, then perhaps it's time to thank BBO for providing FREELY a service during all those years. BBO does not owe anything to anyone.

“Why is bbo forcing users to use something they dislike? ”

bbo does not force anyone to use bbo …

btw, i prefer the windows client but if bbo has decided to cut it off, so be it. bbo does not owe anything to any user, if one can't stand using the web client, one is free to either find another bridge playing site or deveop its own site to fit its needs.

Yes, in the highest levels of french team competition provided that the convention and its follow-ups have been provided to the other teams at least 15 days before the first day of competition.

Moreover, written defense is allowed at the table.
