ACBL Scheduling.
Ray: Are you really advocating less than 26 boards per session for a NABC+ event? If the number of boards played is really that much of a concern, then the regional games or even the single-session side games are the way to go. I doubt that any single-session side game ...

Do you open this hand in 1st seat Love All at IMPs?
I was playing a very aggressive light opening system in which 2 bids were 3-9 HCP and 5 cards. Once I failed to open 2 on a 4 count with a heart suit of 8xxxx. My partner got very upset - he called it a system violation.
2!D opening
Seems like it lacks cause and effect.
A new low for the robots
Bobby: Singing seems to have a universal lack of accent. When I was in high school, I was in several singing groups. One of the girls was from the south and had a very thick southern drawl. But when she sang there was no trace of it.
