USBF Invitational 1: My adventures on BBO part 2
I have to disagree with Nigel; the x here is just not worth the risk at imps. I had an auction against this pair late last year at a D3 regional in a Swiss event, bid a major suit game vul, my partner xx'd, with a similar double by ...
Defense to Strong Club Opening
The reason I prefer using Suction is that partner is able to apply LOTT reasoning, bidding to the appropriate level immediately, often before the Big clubbers have found a fit, and have difficulty finding the correct strain and level.
If all authorities approved
Jim: rest assured, I will not respond in the future to any of your polls.
If all authorities approved
Barry: I don't know that I would have phrased your responses in the manner you did, but as independent businesses, and a member of the Board of Unit 140, no Unit Board has the right, or power, to decree that a club cannot open its doors.
If all authorities approved
Jim: The term "relevant authorities" is exceedingly vague. I live in NJ, one of the hardest hit states in the U.S.A. from Covid-19, and current Executive Orders of the Governor would not permit such a gathering, and are unlikely to do so for a considerable amount of time ...
BBO Team games
Craig & Dian: Thank you for the "tinyurl" web address; very impressive. Our Unit (140, Central NJ) has asked one of our Board members, Arnie Dorin, to conduct a feasibility study on doing a Virtual KO or Swiss. Is it possible that some one could contact Phil, to ask if he would be willing to share his (internet ...
Cheating on BBO
JoAnn: Agreed, but a Player Memo should also be sent to either the (Unit) Asst. District Recorder, or District Recorder, if all the players are from the same Unit/District, respectively. Josh: TY for your offer; most appreciated. I did (recently) file a Player Memo with ACBL, and rec'd ...
Pick your poison
Len: I seem to hold a minority view in this discussion. To me, the hand is FAR too flawed to bid 1N at any form of scoring: 8 of your 15 HCP are in one suit; I don't want to be in 2s opposite a hand with J empty ...
You be the judge - a missed slam with tricks to spare!
I agree with David. Once West bid 4d, the singleton spade becomes the key factor. If you are always going to bid 5d, it costs nothing to show a spade control "along the way". Partner knows it is not the Ace, as it would have been shown earlier.
Westwood (MA) Duplicate Bridge Club Moved Out of Site
Ed: A sad post, indeed. Although not in your state, I know that the Attorney General in Mass. does enforce legitimate consumer complaints. If in fact, the club had the foresight to negotiate rent-abatement provisions which would have taken effect upon a pandemic (or the Amer.Legion was silly enough ...
