Bridge Information

ACBL Ranking
Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Find The Human
Even bots must bid accurately sometimes. Monkeys and typewriters, you know.
Find The Human
Love the format. For future reference, I'd find it interesting to see how people used to playing against robots (you don't really play with them, do you?) do compared to people who aren't.
What Is Partner Saying to You?
That agreement is fairly common against weak NT, not strong. Would be nice if the OP had specified the range.
Is this system bad or illegal? (EDIT)
As others have said, this will introduce problems with constructive bidding. Against that, you will get some gains because opponents don't know what they're doing against your methods (as long as you DO). This isn't quantifiable, and won't last forever if your methods catch on.
For those of a certain age
And don't forget -700 against 710/720 at matchpoints; I had that a few times. (Typically these were slams that weren't a good idea to bid on two hands, e.g. three finesses worked or something like that.)
Does Anybody Play This Any More
You can evade this by making trump lowercase. Although I'm not sure I want to.
When your tires are flat
IANAL either, but I've read the "fair use" law (US, but I believe others are similar) and IMO it makes the Laws of Bridge look like a model of clarity. I'm pretty sure it doesn't mean you can copy whatever copyrighted material you feel like copying, however.
When your tires are flat
Is the parrot African or European?
Opening 7NT
I've played against people who think this is what "competitive auction" means.
Kibitzer draws attention to a false concession
Certainly if you leave the playing area, e.g. go across the street to have dinner.
