The Kids Table: There is Such a Thing as Bad Publicity
They may be separate, but their interests are aligned, and they often work together. E.g. ACBL runs Education Foundation games. And ACBL allowed the filmmakers to film during the NABCs.
"The Kids Table" - A Bridge Documentary // Filmmaker Statement
The vast majority of documentary filmmakers are total unknowns, languishing in obscurity their entire careers. Ken Burns and Michael Moore are the exceptions. Have you compared their "likes" to other minor filmmakers? The Internet has certainly opened up new outlets for them to show their results, but it also means ...
"The Kids Table" - A Bridge Documentary // Filmmaker Statement
The Ed Foundation is a charity, not a business expecting to get a return on their investment.
The Kids Table: There is Such a Thing as Bad Publicity
Indeed. Should "Aces and Knaves" have omitted the "Knaves" part about the cheating scandals?
The Kids Table: There is Such a Thing as Bad Publicity
OTOH, if ACBL didn't support this, who would have? They say there's no such thing as bad publicity. A big problem bridge has these days is lack of visibility. Would it really be better if the movie had never been made at all? As the filmmaker said in ...

Mistaken bid
In my experience, it typically means at least 1 control, which should be enough for game opposite a minimum 2 opening. If opener has anything extra, the 5 level should be safe so they should explore slam if a fit is found.
Mistaken bid
David may have been assuming the popular style where 2 is a positive response and 2 is an immediate negative. Many do consider being able to give a positive response immediately is a slam-bidding tool. If opener knows that responder has at least 1 control, he can tell ...
Mistaken bid
I suspect David simply has a different idea of "slam try", thinking it's more analogous to "game try". Normally after a game try, partner either bids game or not (occasionally they'll make a counter try in between). But a splinter is usually an invitation to explore slam, not ...
