Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Tempo question ( too fast over a jump)
Tracy: Assuming you are correct, you should take them aside, and gently remind them "just because there are no longer stop cards in the bidding box", they still must wait 10 seconds after a skip bid. Since the ACBL abolished the "stop card", this is, unfortunately, a frequent occurrence.
Whats the Best Line—-Allendale Tales #2
Len: not that it matters, but your psychic window must be open, since you claim to know my two major partnerships better than I -- it would be nice if you were correct. Sam would always open the hand 1nt, but Dennis, at mp's, would ALWAYS open 1d at mp ...
Whats the Best Line—-Allendale Tales #2
Richard: In addition to the comments in the 2nd paragraph, this is a hand-type (4-4 majors, suit oriented) that very often plays better in 2 of a major rather than 1n, and with less than invitational values and a major, partner will always pass 1n - at imps, I always open ...
Too Conservative or just Unlucky?—ATB?
I agree with Craig, except for the last paragraph. After 2nd chair opener, with a good 7-loser hand, a 4th spade, 2 of the top 5 spade honors, a possible ruffing value in h's, and all of my points in 3 suits, I would always force to game with ...
Challenges and concerns for the bridge community
John: I agree with your position. There was a recent article by Jeff Bayonne, entitled "Is bridge dying...", on which I commented about the Youth Bridge Program of Unit 140 (central NJ), which focuses its entire effort in that area to programs for elementary and middle school youngsters. You may ...
1NT or 1C
Daniel: I agree: at mp's, you need to "play with the field", whereas at imps, I would consider the hand just a bit too strong, as I want to be in game opposite most decent 8-counts.
Toronto Youth NABC Video
TY for the post, Chris. Our Unit was very proud to send the U.S.'s second largest contingent, 19 kids (exceeded only by the Silicon Valley unit) to the Toronto NABC.
Is Bridge "Dying" or are the demographics simply changing?
Chris: although we have a video of the trip of the 19 kids that a 501c(3) corp sponsored to send them, and chaperones, to the Toronto national(which I can get Barbara Clark to tell you its location on YouTube, if you want), what we do in 140 with ...
Is Bridge "Dying" or are the demographics simply changing?
Peg: Things are far different from the time when you and I were in college. Unfortunately, very few colleges have a bridge program, and even in those that do, only a few players (i.e., those taught bridge by their parents) participate. Also, we must recognize that we are in ...
Is Bridge "Dying" or are the demographics simply changing?
Jeff--2 points to make. Demographics are REALLY scary. The median age in the ACBL is 77 yrs old !! (It is really sad at my club when I am one of the 2-3 youngest players in the room at 70.) As I have advised you in the past, I have "batted ...
