To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
I am not asking for skill levels to be announced: that would be humorous. But either all opponents should be aware of North's unusual style (via a pre-alert), or he should desist from it. One swallow does not a summer make. This one deal does not prove that North ...
To Record or Not To Record, That is the Question
Let's say two different pairs sit down against this particular N/S. The first pair know who N/S are, that North is a pro, South is a weak client, and therefore North takes control of auctions and is prone to bidding on nothing. This pair shrugs off North ...

On the other hand, 1 makes it easier for an opponent to come in with a major? Would have preferred to see more comments about the pre-emptive nature of the 1NT opening ....
Futile Willie?
North did indeed do a fair impression of Futile Willie. West, East and South are all members of the Guggenheim family.
What would you say if you were director?
He's a beginner so I'd certainly tell him. Do you want to keep bridge alive or not?
Am I overthinking ? Opening lead choice.
So perhaps then, it isn't automatic.
