Draft ACBL Alert Procedure - Request for Comments
What about the 2 bid in the auction 1M 2, when it is played as something like 'GF, natural or balanced'. We alert it, but I've had opponents simply announce 'could be short', and sometimes nothing is said because 'everyone plays it that way'.
Draft ACBL Alert Procedure - Request for Comments
Good stuff, thanks. Some of the transfer implications aren't covered, or at least I couldn't spot where. In the transfer auction 1 P 1, 1 is announced as 'spades'. However it isn't clear how opener should clarify his rebids. 1 might be any ...
Montreal Summer 2020 NABC Canceled
Here is a handy summary of how various nations are handling the virus. As I write this, the North American situation is this: US: cases 645K, deaths per M 86, tests per M 9.9K The Canadian cases need to be multiplied by the population ...

Strength of Rosenkranz Double and Redoubles When Using C/1MX, Rubens Advances, Etc.

Gimme More Aces and Spaces
The issue of whether double dummy results are reasonable proxies for ‘real bridge’ results has been beaten to death. I happen to think they are. Richard Pavlicek’s nice summary is worth a look RS: Right MH: This was a quick and dirty analysis ...

Steve I want to be sure I know what you are asking for. My post illustrated 16 opposite 9. You would like to see the same for 16-8 and 16-10?
