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…”

How about - Have fun and Enjoy the journey – they can learn the subtleties once they learn enough to understand them……

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.

more to it than just avoiding a disaster Rainer - partner has to be able to take your bidding seriously. If everything is wide-ranging than everything ends up being a guess.

A little heavy for 1nt, but with no fit - take it slow.

Read Kit Woolsey's excellent book “Matchpoints”. He has several pages devoted to this subject (Maybe even a whole chapter if memory serves). By far the best reference I have seen.

The way the question is phrased definately leads to one answer over the other…..

A wimpy 3NT looks right on this non-fitting hand.

Technically, he is right - the clubs are all good. Too bad he only gets 4 of them…..

One of my opponents got a slow play penalty at a sectional when I called the director and ask him “Is this a timed event?” - otherwise never seen one given.
