funny that in a national event (10k pairs) no pair beat 3H and several made 4 (one actually bid 4H) – so I suspect it is not as “basic” as you might think…..

These types of results are why poor players keep coming back….

How about people being critical of other people's posts. If you have no interest in a post, nothing says you have to read/ comment on it. Just because YOU think something should be in the intermediate forum or a bidding problem etc, does not mean that everyone else does…..

Treating this as a limit raise keeps in theory with invite conservatively at MP's and accept aggressively. - Protects the plus score but still get to good games.

At IMPS, invite aggressively (force to game with all close decisions) and accept conservatively. (I would force to game with this hand at IMPS)

Hold on a second… How many times have I seen someone make a post and everyone says, if you want to know if XX is a logical alternative then making a bidding (or lead in this case) poll. It appears the poster did just that. So now he gets to hear how he should not have posted the poll at all? Seems to me like some people will complain no matter what you do….

Kind of my point….. Rather than congratulate the opponents, they try and find a way to make it “they got a good score against me, they must not be ethical…”

Richard: I have no problem having an honest discussion about what should and should not be legal and why people play the game. What I have a problem with is the comment: “bridge is a game for people who like to pretend they are competing at a mindsport, not the ones who actually are.”

That comment is insulting and condescending to many (most?) of the people that play the game. How I read this is: “ if your don't like the way I play bridge you are just not as smart as me”

Yes, This ATTITUDE will drive people away - I have witnessed it. Please remember 90% of players know they will never win a major event, they are out for enjoyment. Make it un-enjoyable and they will find something else to do.

I am not trying to start an argument here but that is a very arrogant statement by Richard. People play bridge for MANY reasons. Some social, some competitive and some just to get out of the house. If we drive away 1/2 the bridge playing population because we dont like the reason they play or continually insult them because it is not the reason they live/ eat and breath, we will eventually be sitting in a 3-table game. Learn to accept that others play bridge for different reasons and try to make it enjoyable for all

Maybe the price ( and charging more for 6 man teams) has something to do with it.

I prefer to play it as natural and was surprised that was not one of the choices.
