Do Sandwich No Trump bids need to be alerted
We could call it "unusual", except that's already taken for jumping to 2NT. Languages are full of idioms, phrases that don't mean what they literally say. Why should bridge terminology be any different? Why would you need a special term for natural NT overcalls in the sandwich position ...
Do Sandwich No Trump bids need to be alerted
That's correct when answering a request for explanation at the table. In discussions, we generally just use names.

Junior Party Sat Nov 30 at SF NABC!

An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers
Have fairness and logic ever been part of the masterpoint design? As I understand it, it's all about getting people to play in different games. When attendance at sectionals started to decline, they created silver points and made them a Life Master requirement. When KO entries dwindled because people ...
