Why Hasn't ACBL Replaced SAYC w/ a Basic 2/1 System Instead?
Anyone pondering the merits of 2/1 vs. Standard may refer to a debate between Larry Cohen and me in the May 2013 Bridge Bulletin. If I recall correctly, my critique of 2/1 did not include the issue of opener often being obliged to rebid a three-card minor over ...
What, if anything, do you miss about bridge in 1970?
I appreciate some of the heartfelt sentiments in this thread. What a thrill it used to be to win a big Regional event — a significant achievement. Now it seems that the purpose of tournaments, with all the Bracketed, Flighted and Stratified convolutions, is to see that as many players as ...
NABC results of Blue Team members
The first Nationals I attended was Atlanta, Spring 1971. Belladonna-Garozzo played in the Men’s Pairs, which later became the Open Pairs, and won it. It was an odd event, with two qualifying sessions and a one(!)-session final. At that time, the BG partnership was reputed to have never ...
Would You Overcall
Peg, If all the posts on BW were as consistently temperate, articulate, thoughtful and constructive as yours, this would be a better place. The BW community should be aware that our Peg is dealing with a serious and debilitating health issue, which she is battling with courage. She went to ...
An Open Letter to ACBL Unit and District Officers
Friends, I apologize for the length of this post. Because this thread has had some relevance to recent correspondence I had with ACBL officials, and because I am in sympathy with posts expressing distress at the farcical state of the masterpoint system, I am posting that correspondence for what good ...
Help Needed
The deal appeared — no source given — in “Sheinwold on Bridge” on December 11, 1993. Freddy was apt to recycle deals, so quite possibly he used it before then. I suspect the deal goes back many more decades. In the Thirties, people with time on their hands were fond of constructing ...
A Bridge Swifty
“Our system notes are incomplete,” Tom said listlessly. “There was an earthquake during the tournament,” Tom said shakily. “We’ll eat between sessions, and I’ll bless the meal,” Tom said gracefully.
A Bridge Swifty
“Ever played bridge in a cemetary?” Tom asked gravely. “Accidents will happen,” Captain Hook spoke offhandly. “I bid that hand well,” the Venus de Milo said disarmingly.
Poll: Is “Plain Blackwood” Ever Played by “High-Level” Pairs?
Edgar Kaplan — and I think everyone would agree that he was a capable bidding theorist — disdained Keycard Blackwood. Two of his points were, first, that the king of trumps is not an ace, no matter what anybody says, and sometimes you want to be at slam if that king and ...
NABC Bulletins, Do They Need to Be as They Are?
To consider deal submissions, write up what is deemed acceptable, edit, double-check the analysis, write other copy, proofread, make up the pages, and end up producing a Daily Bulletin that is organized, accurate, comprehensive and interesting, all under deadline pressure in the wee hours ... that is no easy task. I ...
