Club policy legal?
Beginners are taught how to handle pre-empts. They are seldom taught how to detect psyches, partly because in these threads, I get the impression if the psyching pair is much more honest against peers. I'm not saying to ignore the opposition—I'll bid more optimistically against pairs I ...
Club policy legal?
If N-S make this same psychic bid against good opponents (including, of course, N raising when he has 16 points and is 4-1-3-5), I'm willing to consider it foolish but not unsportsmanlike. But what makes me think there is an unstated partnership agreement that goes "Against the fish, be ...
How the average 'grass-roots' club players feel about psychs
In my college game, North would have held xxxx of hearts, KQx of spades, and a stiff club. The bidding goes 1-2 and then 3NT uttered (before bidding boxes) with an air of finality. Now it would be slapped down on the table with a clear indication North ...
How the average 'grass-roots' club players feel about psychs
Ogust is an alterable bid. If the opponents ask, I think "Ogust" is an even worse short description than usual, because most take that as showing an invitational (or better) hand. I think it's incumbent on your partner to say that while you are asking about opener's values ...

Reasons to attend the Eastern States Regional (NYC)
I played in the New Yorker for the first time last December. I liked it. Although lighting at a couple tables wasn't good. And I got a room below $200.
ACBLscore"+" - a short history
Most midnight-hack garage-written programs are disasters; just, unlike the NHS or other large government projects, they stay out of public view. As technologies mature, the opportunity for one brave soul to do something earth-shattering therein drops. Although I admit, ACLBScore looks to me like it shouldn't need more than ...

SNOBOL. Wow, thought I was the only person left who wants to revive it. But I don't think it's a good choice for ACBLScore.
Bidding Style Variation during an Event
Even against a particular partnership, my double of Player A's 3-level preempt is takeout-oriented while my double of Player B's is "As usual, B doesn't have his bid; is 500 enough or do we need to declare?"
