An unethical behavior (in my view) happened at a regional - what should I do?
MIke: There is a problem with your proposal: at least one person of the pair MUST keep a private score.
Takeout Doubler's Second Bid RHO passes
Nick: Doesn't it really depend on two factors: whether it is imps or mp's AND partnership style (i.e, whether a raise to 2 is just a LOTT bid?)
Another Smolen auction
Bill: I think it depends on your methods. In my two best partnerships, we have a way of showing a G/F 6/4 (by making an immediate Texas trf), and a methodology to make a mild slam try with a good 6/4(by making a delayed Texas trf ...
Minutes of the ACBL Educational Foundation
Len: TY for the post. When Bihar was CEO, I encouraged a change of focus which he rejected --it is WAY TOO LATE to attract a substantial number of new members at the high school and college level. As President of Unit 140 (central NJ), we have an extremely successful ...
1st or 2nd round controls - below game only?
I play multi-cue bids, and tend to follow cue bidding structure used by Garrozzo and the Italian Blue team with my 2 favorite partners. If I remember correctly, in THEIR system, 2n was an artificial game force, so I don't understand the 3h response (which I believe shows a ...

Financial fraudsters are targeting ACBL entities
I am President of Unit 140. What is much more scary is that after my Treasurer received one of these scam e-mails, I e-mailed the ACBL, and was told by Mitch Hodus that several such attempts were made on the ACBL directly. It was MY SUGGESTION that he send the ...
Bad Judgment or Bad Luck?
Len: I am not enamored with the 1n opening. Hand is very suit oriented(3 bullets, and a heart suit with 4 of the top 7, which "makes up" for QJ clubs doubleton). If you follow the reasoning in Kit's book, "Matchpoints", this is a hand that should NOT ...
Fairfield Regional, Woodbridge Sectional
Ilan: I am President of Unit 140 - TY for your interest in our Sectional. Although we guarantee partners for the matchpoint events on Friday and Saturday, we do not do so for the Swiss. However, I suggest you go to our website,, download and print a copy ...
1NT or 1S??
Perhaps it is phraseology, but the deciding factor for me in opening the 1st hand 1s is that it is EXTREMELY suit-oriented, with a small doubleton, and Aces and Kings. I I agree with the comments on the second hand that Qxx,KQ, and a broken spade suit make the ...
