Frustration With BBO Directors
Tuna was the reason that a lot of people left OKB and went to BBO (including me).
Rate this two-notrump bid
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the 2N bid if it is used as a HCP game invitation, which is what I do. 3 can be used for invitation based on trump quality, allowing the inviter to specify what s/he needs.
How to get to 6!D
I cannot imagine why West wouldn't bid a lot stronger after partner makes a GF bid. Any GF by East should promise somewhere around 12+ pts and West has 20 HCP, so slam is extremely likely. Although I agree with lots of people that 3 is a strange ...
Roland Wald R.I.P.
I worked with Roland as a commentator for several years, and his dedication to bridge and BBO was an inspiration for many of us. I'm so sorry to learn of his death and offer my condolences to his family. He won't be forgotten.
Request for non-attitude-oriented signaling method description
When I was a novice duplicate bridge player, I had the chance to play once with a really good local player. While discussing, he told me to give nothing but count signals on defense -- every card was to be count in the suit played unless I was winning the trick ...
Is This Unreasonable?
The whole purpose of an alert is to tell the opponents that they should ask. Suggesting that someone should wonder enough to ask in the absence of an alert is totally wrong and out of line. That director needs to go back to director school.
Online tempo
I think there are so many things that can cause a pause unrelated to bridge -- your 3 yo granddaughter crawling into your lap, your cat threatening your drink next to the computer, your spouse asking a question, your child leaving the house without telling you where s/he is going ...
Opening 15-17 NT with 5 card Major
I like and teach to open 1M with 5 card M, EXCEPT 16 HCP with 5332, primarily because that particular distribution has no good rebid after partner responds a forcing 1N. Over 1S response, you can rebid 1N with 15 and 2N with 17 in a pinch. The only exception ...
Is this Stayman?
Give up stolen bids and play lebensohl instead. I love playing against people who use stolen bid doubles ... I can overcall their 1N openings with garbage, they can't double me for penalty.
Convert ACBL Live tourney hands to LIN
You are welcome to try this: I wrote it for my own purposes and it doesn't do the full auction and card play (puts it into LIN comments instead) but you are welcome to use it. Just paste the full handviewer link ...
