Bridge post-mortems at the table
While I do agree that they should, generally speaking, be avoided (system screw ups being the exception, in order to avoid another one), I'm pretty sure that wasn't the question.
What is wrong with the Montreal Relay?
I've never played it, but if memory serves, I think 1M over 1! promises 5 cards. With a 4 card major, you're supposed to respond 1.
ACBL Search Committee Up and Rolling
Wonder if they'll manage to find a clue this time. Nah, who am I kidding?
Mike Heins's bidding problem: J973 5 KJ85 T832
I'd probably have bid 4 to begin with as well.
Say No To Cheats
I have, and they were kind enough to waste some time, some ink, some paper, and then filed it in the circular file. I guess some part of my point, that the powers that be, at the club, unit, district and national level, at least in ACBL land, are far ...

Say No To Cheats
"Forbidden" is utterly meaningless when there is no enforcement.
Say No To Cheats
Well, there are 3 pairs at the club where I play that actually cheat. With agreements, collusion, and everything. For example (and I've tracked this over roughly 5 boards a week against them for over 2 years). Granted, most of what they do is laughably amateurish and easy to ...
Say No To Cheats
Signing letters is nice, but as long as cheating at the lower levels is met with only a shrug, and the tired, inane "it's only a club game" drivel, cheating will continue.
