Bridge Information

Beating the world champions in the New England Knockouts.

Two open regionals back when winning a regional event meant something. More sectionals and flighted or bracketed regional events than I can remember.

Light takeouts. A direct 1NT overcall is an 8-13 HCP takeout with two or three spades. A direct cue-bid over 1C, 1D, or 1H is an 8-13 HCP takeout with four or five spades. Double is 14+ HCP and can be offshape.

I had to laugh when I read this today: "The Houston Astros may have been caught cheating during Game 1 of the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox on Saturday. "Metro reported on Tuesday that security removed a man claiming to be an Astros employee from the media credentialed area ...

Deb, I don't believe anything Roger Goodell says or any "unnamed sources," particularly information obtained by the Boston Herald, which is essentially a tabloid. The real Boston newspaper is the Globe. I'm also a Kurt Warner fan. There are certain players any sports fan has to admire because ...

Allen, I care much more about the truth than any sports team regardless of what area they represent. Had it been any other NFL team, it wouldn't change my point of view. The fact that the team I've followed all my life was the center of the hysteria-driven ...

Randy, you have no idea what you're talking about and your blind acceptance of the BS that was splashed all over the media by scandal-hungry sports reporters proves it. Those reporters were overjoyed to have something negative to say about the Patriots because it was exactly what the envious ...
Avon Wilsmore and Eugenio Chiaradia
Filming the game is perfectly legal and every team, including college and high school teams, has done it for decades. What Belichick did wrong was to film from the field instead of the coaches' box. He admitted that he was unaware of the rule and paid the fine. It was ...

This is off-topic but I'm offended by people who believe all the BS spread by the media about the New England Patriots. Randy Breuer commented: "in USA NE Patriots have been accused and convicted a couple times for cheating do you think they have fewer fans today than before ...

Style Poll
Auction 1: Some people play this as a preemptive re-raise, in which case a new suit is a game try. It's my preference. Auction 2: Simple. Show your values and your four+card majors.
Table feel vs Cheating
Re: Barry, are you aware of any ACBL official who would be serving the role of the Commander of the Coast Guard Auxiliary flotilla in Ken's comment? Not in today's ACBL. Nor do I know anything about the command structure of the Coast Guard.
Table feel vs Cheating
Having worked for several magazines, including the ACBL Bulletin a long time ago, I can say with authority that it's standard procedure at any magazine for content from contributors to be edited for accuracy, grammar, and spelling. If the content isn't clear, thorough, or concise, it may be ...
