Opener's splinters after a 2-over-1
Jeff: I understand the poll choices -- I did NOT vote in the poll, but 3 question marks (rather than 3 small x's) is the way to do posit this question.
Opener's splinters after a 2-over-1
I think whoever is the partner of the person who opened an 8-loser 8 count COULD NEVER SPLINTER, since he can't trust his pard's openers. I wouldn't open that hand even if I added the Q-d, instead of a small one.
What is the best treatment ?
I am not certain there is a "best" treatment. However, it is important to have a system that both shows and denies a stopper. In my partnerships, I play that any bid is a response to stayman WITH a stopper.
What is you plan?
Len: Under the conditions you posited (mp's), I voted for 2n, as I would be reluctant to "pinpoint" a D lead. At imps, I think 3c is superior, as partner can bid 3n with Qxx of d, in addition to the reasons you enunciated
The Death of Teams
Michal: Times have radically changed from 25-40 years ago. Regional attendance would be SIGNIFICANTLY down if Gold Rush events were offered with some frequency. In addition, smaller regionals rarely have enough teams to warrant a KO. As a Tournament Chair, table count is a priority, and so is catering to ...
Teachers Manual and Lesson Plans - updated from New England Youth Bridge, Inc.
TY, Jeff. Our unit's (140, central NJ) efforts have been focused on elementary and middle school students. However, we have had a request, initiated by students previously in our program and now formally requested by the administration of Orange High School, to begin a program there; I will begin ...
Player Memos
Don: We were one of the first units in the country to adopt a ZTP policy early in 2002. Our directors are advised to STRICTLY enforce the policy. As a result (except for one problem "child" -- there is always one), it has been extremely effective in mitigating bad behavior. Even ...
Scrambling Sequence after 1NTX -- Is Pass Alertable?
Aviv: Although I agree with your position, there is an easy mantra here: "if you have information, unless a negative inference, from a bid that partner made and of which the opponents would not be aware, an alert is REQUIRED."
Player Memos
Don: I am not sure I understand your initial comment in this thread. It is the JOB of the recorder to note prior conduct. In our Unit, if and when a new Recorder is appointed, it is the duty of the Recorder to transmit his entire record-keeping to the new ...
Player Memos
Ian: The importance of having any player memo remain confidential is obvious -- one can still be "tarred" by a false or inappropriate accusation. If we could get the bridge population to file player memos (which most do not do), the Recorder, at whatever level, could be aware of repeat offenders ...
