In addition to playing bridge, I am currently a member of the ACBL seeding committee.  I have also coached 2 junior pairs in the program run by Michael and Debbie Rosenberg.  When not playing bridge, I spend my time trading stock options, chilling with my family, and traveling.

Missed game - who was more responsible

Missed game - who was more responsible
Richard, I confess to mild surprise that you wrote, “... unable to agree between themselves whether the East hand is best opened 1 or 1NT” instead of “better opened 1 or 1NT.” We play 14-16 NT, but in 4th seat we play 15-17. If 1NT showed 14-16, I assume ...
Missed game - who was more responsible
I wouldn't be in this position (having opened a precision 1♣).
Ron Smith's bidding problem: 76 J2 765 AQJ876
Hi Richard, Thanks for the explanation, much more helpful than “I wouldn’t be in this situation...” If my clubs included the ten, I would bid 3. If my clubs were something like AJxxxx, I would pass only if 2 promised 4. If my spades were a bit ...
Ron Smith's bidding problem: 76 J2 765 AQJ876
Richard, Is 2 forcing? If so, what would you now bid over partner's 2 rebid? Adding a comment which basically says, "I don't play these methods so would not have this problem" isn't very helpful unless you are suggesting better methods. Not sure responding 2 ...

Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
Paul, While I certainly agree with some of what you said, at a minimum I would make one small change: “... the bridge world does not have the same level of robustness within its own community to deal with these issues and prosecute with the same level of INeffectiveness.”
Anti-Doping Violation by Geir Helgemo results in Team Zimmerman disqualification from Orlando Rosenblum Cup
Hi Arend, I’m guessing, assuming, presuming. No idea if it helps performance at the bridge table. I’m also guessing that had Geir applied for a TUE for his medication, it would have been granted. Thus my view that he was guilty of a technicality.
