Tax attorney in Atlantic City, NJ.  Playing bridge since 1972.  Inherited much of my sense of bridge humor from Dave Treadwell, so beware.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ACBL and psyching 1N. Again?
Mike: There are a limited number of announcements. Jacoby Transfers are announcements. If you are playing something else, it may be an alert. The fact that a hard-of-hearing opponent may misconstrue your alert for an announcement is a regulatory issue and, strictly speaking, is not your problem (I don't ...
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
Martin: Sorry. Was not looking at the hand correctly. I voted that 2 was not forcing in the initial poll. I believe that is what you are recreating in your construction.
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
Martin: You may respond 1 with xxxxxx xxx xxx x, but I am sure there are a great many players who would find this to be highly unusual. Bob: We have a fundamental disagreement. In my opinion, no call that opener makes opposite a passed hand is forcing unless ...
ACBL and psyching 1N. Again?
David: If the partnership has knowledge about each partner's proclivity to psych a 1 call in this auction and does not disclose this information to the opponents, that would be unethical. Now you are saying that if they do disclose, that doesn't make them ethical and, in ...

I don't follow the logic in this. In an uncontested auction, playing 2/1, the bidding begins: 1 - 1 2 The 1 bid is not forcing. But I would bet that nearly everyone would say that the 2 bid is forcing. The missing factor ...
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
Martin: In my opinion, the 2 bid in your last sequence is a reverse, even though it differs in some respects from the definition that you cited. In your last sequence, opener had the option of passing. Since he did not do so, he "bypassed" pass in order to ...
ACBL and psyching 1N. Again?
There are no announcements that require an alert. A bid is either an alert or an announcement. In the case of an alert, the procedure is to say "ALERT!" and tap the Alert card on the table. In the case of an announcement, the procedure is to make the announcement ...
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
"Always" may be an overbid.
Is this "Reverse" Forcing?
I am curious about the vote for "other." The first two choices are 2 is forcing and 2 is not forcing. Last time I checked, that covered 100% of the possibilities. So where exactly does "other" fall? EDIT: I noticed that the first choice actually says that 2 ...
ACBL and psyching 1N. Again?
Here is the hand in the OP: AQ AQx T9xxxxx J It is true that if one changes one of the small diamonds into the K, which results in: AQ AQx T9xxxx KJ one would have a hand that everyone would agree falls in the definition of a 15-17 1NT ...
