about me

Long ago, in a galaxy far away, my wife and I used to play a lot, and made token appearances in the lower flights of a couple of GNTs and NAPs and such.  Also managed to lose in the finals of the 0-750 knockouts at three straight Spring Nationals, which is harder to do than it sounds.

 

Then kids happened. 

 

Now we don't play much.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Ethical or not?
Playing your choice of card in tempo when it is your turn to play is never unethical, and it is utterly ridiculous to say otherwise.
What is the right thing to do?
3, and then 2 because 4. (If you don’t know what to do, call the director. If you do know what to do, you know it says to call the director.)
Wesley May's bidding problem: QJ J842 K AKJ654
I’m just trying to figure out what the second choice is supposed to be.
Hawaii NABC Needs Your Support
Serious question: how many rooms are “enough”?
NABCs
In my world you’d still have three but one would be in Memphis every year to cut costs and make for useful board and member meetings (they can telecommute for the other ones; decoupling those is a good idea).
What It Was Like Negotiating Hotel Rooms On Behalf Of The ACBL
If we were booking things multiple years in advance back then, the negotiated rate would have been locked in well before any earthquake.

They’d probably lose out, but: 1) surely there’s some city somewhere that will have space 3 years in advance, and 2) part of the problem is that by being first you’re losing all leverage and paying top dollar.

Christopher Moh's bidding problem: 93 KQT954 KQ9 AQ
I approve of everything we did until now, and if partner is listening, we have no reason to do more.
Did the Director get it right?
I’d give a hard no on the PP — all players are responsible for ensuring that the boards are shuffled, right? And I’d guess that maybe 10-20% of players would recognize a hand being recycled in this way. But yes, no way you can let it be replayed once ...
