Some people look for any reason to be offended…..

my thoughts exactly about the NABC being close. Maybe it is time to reduce the # of tournaments?

It is hard enough to get some people to know when to call the director…. Remember this is a hobby for a lot of people (non-BW readers obviously….)

I once answered a question (don't remember the exact auction) with:
That shows 5 Spades and 4 hearts (or something like that). They said “what's that called?”.

My response was “I don't know, it shows 5 Spade and 4 hearts”. Once again, “what's that called”. I finally said “ I guess it is the Brines' Convention”. They then asked “Really? What does that show?”

Sometimes you just cannot win……

This is a well-thought out an presented article. I look forward to reading some of the responses. Thanks!

I would say “tends to deny 3Hearts” but in some cases (example:
KJ10x Jxx Axx KQx) may have 3card Heart if NT looks right.

I would have reported him to hotel security. Forget the director……

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…..

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…”
